Various voices: "This way, come on, he's over here!", "Oh, look, his stripes (??), come on everybody.", "It's a pigeon rally!"

Bert: Greetings, pigeon fanciers of America and guest pigeons! (voices of agreement and happiness) We are meeting in the park for a special reason. Everyone knows you should not throw papers and cans on the ground, because it makes a mess for people, right? (voices agree) Yeah, right, okay, but, but, but ... what about pigeons? (voices agree) Yeah, nobody thinks about them, man's best friend! (voices agree) You know, it makes a mess for them, too! (voices quietly agree) Yeah, and they live on the ground! (voices loudly agree) So, maestro ... (music starts)

(sung)

A boy in the park with a paper
From a sandwich on which he had fed
Was about to drop it on the sidewalk
When a pigeon looked up and it said

"Please, keep the park clean for the pigeons.
That is the right thing to do!
Throw all your trash in the basket
And we will say 'Thank Coo' to you! (patented-Bert-laugh)
Keep the park clean for the pigeons,
When you eat candy or gum
Throw what is left in the trashcan
Think of your small feathered chum."

(spoken)

Bert: Ever see a pigeon drop a soda can on the ground?

Voices: No!

Bert: No. And when pigeons see breadcrumbs on the sidewalk, do they just leave them there?

Voices: No!

Bert: No, no, no, they pick them up with their beaks! And not just because they're hungry, right?

Voices: Right!

Bert: Right, because pigeons hate a mess!

(sung)

When there is trash on the sidewalk
They can't see breadcrumbs to eat
Crackerjacks get in their feathers (awwww)
Chewing gum sticks to their feet
So put your trash in your pocket
If there's no basket around
Please, keep it to throw away later
Remember that bird on the ground
And .... people!

background singers: Keep the park clean for the pigeons!

Bert: Pigeons!

pigeons cooing

Bert: People!

singers: Throw all your trash in the basket!

Bert: Pigeons!

pigeons cooing

Bert: Everyone!

Keep the park clean for the pigeons
That is the right thing to do!
Throw all your trash in the basket
And they will say "Thank Coo" to you!
Throw all your trash in the basket
And they will say "Thank Coo" to you!

(spoken)

Bert: Thank you, thank you, thank you. Same time tomorrow everybody!
