“Sometimes me think, what is friend? And then me say: a friend is someone to share last cookie with.” – Cookie Monster

Me crave to eat a mackerel,
but me don’t know find where?
Me only know where cookie jar, 
but me no find it there.

Me buy cookie at grocery store,
is that where me should go?
Me walk down street to go to shop,
but me find they are closed. 

Me walk back up Sesame Street,
bump into Oscar friend.
He lives in trash can with much food,
so maybe he can lend.

So me ask him: “Have mackerel?”
and Oscar say: “I do!”
He dig and find some mackerel;
so kind, he give me two.
