Sesame Street – Up & Down lyrics
[Spoken: cookie monster and herry monster]
Cookie monster: Oh *Sobs* Oh, I'm so sad
Herry monster: Hey you! Hey fuzzy face! Why are you crying and looking up in the sky?
Cm: Cookie
Hm: You want a cookie?
Cm: I lost my cookie. I dropped my cookie
Hm: Yeah, but you're looking up in the sky! You mean to tell me that you dropped your cookie and you're looking up in the sky for it?
Cm: That's right!
Hm: Don't you know the difference between up and down?
Cm: Oh sure!
Hm: I don't think you do
Cm: No?
Hm: But I know something that might help you. I know a song all about up and down
Cm: You do?
Hm: Yes, I do
Cm: Well, so do I!
Hm: You do?
Cm: Uh-huh!
Hm: Well then, what are we waiting for?! Let's have some music!
Cm: music!

[Verse 1: Cookie Monster and Herry Monster]
Oh, I look up and see a birdie
Flying high and free
Well, I look down and then a sidewalk
Is what I see

[
[Refrain]: Cookie Monster and Herry Monster (Both)]
I look up and see the sky
I look down and see the ground
I look at you and sing a song
About up and down

[Spoken: cookie monster and herry monster]
Hm: Yeah, I look down and I see bugs and stuff like that
Cm: Oh yeah. I look up and I see a tree
Hm: Hey, I see some ants down there
Cm: Oh, look up there! I see clouds!
Hm: [?]
Cookie: And you know what else I see?

[Verse 2: Cookie Monster and Herry Monster]
Oh, I look up and see an airplane flying
Yes, I do
Well, I look down and see my foot
And then I see my shoe

[
[Refrain]: Cookie Monster and Herry Monster (Both)]
I look up and see the sky
I look down and see the ground
I look at you and sing a song
About up and down

[Spoken: cookie monster and herry monster]
Cm: You know I look up, but I can't see my cookie
Hm: Well, you're looking in the wrong direction
Cm: Do I look at you?
Hm: No
Cm: Do you got my cookie?
Hm: No, no, no!
Cm: I love cookies!
Hm: No, no, I don't have a cookie
Cm: Oh no?
Hm: No, no, no
Cm: Well, you know what?

[Verse 3: Cookie Monster and Herry Monster]
Oh, I look up and see the ceiling and there's
One thing more;
Well, I look down and see the rug and
Then I see the floor

[
[Refrain]: Cookie Monster and Herry Monster (Both)]
I look up and see the sky
I look down and see the ground
I look at you and sing a song
About up and down

[Outro: Cookie Monster and Herry Monster]
Oh, up, up and down, and down
Oh, up and down, and down

[Spoken: cookie monster and herry monster]
Hm: Hey, you do know the difference between up and down!
Cm: Oh, sure I do!
Hm: And you sing nice too!
Cm: Aww, thank you
Hm: I've got just one question
Cm: What?
Hm: If you dropped your cookie, why were you looking up in the sky to find it?
Cm: Oh! Because I dropped my cookie and a birdie picked it up and flew away with it up in the sky!
*Bird squawking*
Cm: Oh, there he is! Birdie! Come back, birdie! Oh! Drop the cookie at least! Birdie, don't go away with my cookie! Oh, don't—give me a break, birdie!
