(spoken)

Erykah: Hello.

Muppets: Hi.

Erykah: My name is Erykah Badu.

(NOTE: I don't know the song he's referring to here, sorry if I mess it up!)

Elmo: Oh, the "a-jiggy, jiggy, yee-yo-yee-yo, what ya gonna do", Erykah Badu?

Erykah: That's me. Hey, come on over, let's be friends.

Muppets: Well ... hmmm ....

Rosita: Did she say, "friends"?

Zoe: Yeah, yeah, I think that's what she said, "friends".

Baby Bear: But .. ummmm ... we've never been friends with anyone who ... ahhh ... well, who wears what you're wearing on your head!

Erykah: Well, I've never been friends with three furry monsters or a brown baby bear, either.

(voices of concern about this, they have to brainstorm)

Baby Bear: Okay, huddle up, here we go! (the muppets huddle together) What do ya think?

(various voices: "She said, "friends" and .... she's pretty.")
(they come out of the huddle)

Baby Bear: Alright, so, are you trying to say that you don't want to be friends with three furry monsters and a brown baby bear?!

Erykah: Awww ... no, that's not what I'm trying to say. (music starts)

(sung)

Doesn't matter what you wear
Or what's in your hair
If you're three furry monsters
Or a brown baby bear
We're all friends

(spoken in foreground)

Rosita (to Zoe): Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Zoe (to Rosita): Yeah, let's go! (they run off)

Not being blinded by a color
Accepting one another
Like different letters in the alphabet need each other
We all need friends

(Rosita and Zoe return wearing headwraps like Erykah's)

Rosita and Zoe: Friendship
Talking 'bout friendship
Ooooo - eeeee - doooo - eeeee
Friendship
Talking 'bout friendship
Loooo - laaaa - looooo

Erykah: Now, reaching for a little star
It's pretty far
Come closer to the earth where your buddies are
To look for a friend

Muppets: Friendship
Talking 'bout friendship
Ooooo - eeeee - doooo - eeeee
Friendship
Talking 'bout friendship
Loooo - laaaa - looooo

Erykah: Friendship
Talking 'bout friendship
Ooooo - eeeee - doooo - eeeee
Friendship
Talking 'bout friendship
Loooo - laaaa - looooo
A friend indeed is a friend we need
Be-da-de-da-day
Hey-oh-hey-a-ohh
Let's be friends
Hay-ahh-do-be-day
Talking with my friends
Won't you be my friend

Muppets (in background): Friendship
Talking 'bout friendship
Friendship
We're talking 'bout friendship
Friendship
We're talking 'bout friendship
Won't you be my friend
Friendship
We're talking 'bout friendship
Friendship
We're talking 'bout friendship
Friendship
We're talking 'bout friendship
Won't you be my friend
Friendship
We're talking 'bout friendship
Friendship
We're talking 'bout friendship
Friendship
We're talking 'bout friendship
Won't you be my friend
Friendship
We're talking 'bout friendship
Friendship
We're talking 'bout friendship
Friendship
We're talking 'bout friendship

(spoken)

Erykah: So, we're friends?

(voices of agreement all 'round)

Zoe: Oh, yeah, thanks for the head-wrap!

Erykah: I love your head-wrap.
