(spoken)

Zoe: Big Bird?

Big Bird: Yeah, Zoe?

Zoe: Ya know what I like best?

Big Bird: What?

Zoe: Learning to read.

Big Bird: Oh, me too.

Zoe: Big Bird, ya know what else I like best?

Big Bird: No, what?

Zoe: When a grown-up reads to me. I wish a grown-up would read me this book, right now!

Big Bird: Hmmm ... well, I know a good way to get them to do it.

Zoe: You do?

Big Bird: Sure, now you're Maria, see? (music starts) So, I bring you my book, and I say ... Maria?

Zoe: Yes, Big Bird?

(sung)

Big Bird: Read me a story
Read me a rhyme
Something that happened
Once upon a time
It can have monsters
Princesses too
Wonderful kingdoms
Make-believe or true
Read me a story
And when it's through
Here's what I promise to do
Read me a story
And when I can read
I'll read one to you

(spoken)

See? You make 'em an offer they can't refuse!

Zoe: If I was Maria, I'd read to you.

Big Bird: Oh, and there she is! Look, you sing her this song and I'll bet she'll do it, okay?

Zoe: Yeah, yeah .... Maria? Maria?

Maria: Yes, Zoe?

Zoe: Maria, I wanna ask you something.

(sung)

Read me a story

Something that happened

It can have monsters

Wonderful kingdoms

Read me a story
And when it's through
Here's what I promise to do
Read me a story
And when I can read
I'll read one to you
Read me a story
And when I can read
I'll read one to you
Please?
