( Big Bird & Cookie Monster Thanksgiving song lyrics )
BIG BIRD'S MISSING
Copyright © 2005 - MickTerry.com
On YouTube, performed LIVE by MICK TERRY
There are stories flying thick & thin
on the Todd-A-lert Hotline.
All the kids are on the lookout for Big Bird.
He was s'posed to have a starring role
in the Macy's parade line.
But he didn't show & the kids now are all perturbed.
There was no one in his dressing room
& nobody at his home.
& his chauffer has not seen him for two days.
Ev'rybody in his entourage
claimed his whereabouts unknown.
A police report has been filed on this famous case.
"OH, NO! BIG BIRD'S MISSING!
OH, NO! Has he ended up dead?
OH, NO! Now, here it's Thanksgiving.
OH, NO! Has he lost his head?"
Both my kids have been suspicious now
since my wife was overheard
telling friends about our huge Thanksgiving feast.
They're convinced their daddy's hunted down
their most fav'rite TV bird
& there's nothing that can be said for their tears to cease.
"Daddy, oh, Daddy, how could you be so mean?
Daddy, oh, Daddy, how could you make him dead?
We know you went out hunting with your rifle just this week.
Couldn't you have killed Cookie Monster instead?"
After hours of turmoil, tears & woe,
we've persuaded both our kids
that their daddy's not the demon they had thought.
Now, the only thing that's left to do
is to secretly get rid
of three bags of big yellow feathers in my garage.
