A Monster Went And Ate My Red Two

Oh I want to count to ten now
But it's something I can't do
'Cause I don't have all the numbers
No a monster went and ate my red two

And when I heard him shout cowabunga
That's when I knew that my counting was through
And I can't count any higher
Now the monster went and ate my red two

Oh he was watching while I counted to one
I was smiling because counting's so much fun
But he took my two and then he ate it for his lunch
Now my counting's over before it's begun

Oh I'm feeling so sad now (hey why is that)
'Cause my number got chewed (that's too bad)
There are tears in my eyes (Mr. Elvis how sad)
Now I'm crying boo hoo

Will I ever count to ten
Now that a monster went and ate my red two

Oh Elmo said
Don't worry Elmo knows what to do
He ran right out and came back with another two
Now my friend Mr. Elvis can start counting once again
And with this brand new two I can count up to ten

Now I'm feeling so happy
I feel like shouting yahoo
And me still feeling hungry
Cowabunga
Cookie Monster went and ate the new red two

Oh when I heard him shouting cowabunga
That's when I knew that my counting was through
And I can't count any higher
Now the monster went and ate my red two

Red two
A monster went and ate my red two
Red two
A monster went and ate my red two
Red two
A monster went and ate my red two
Red two
A monster went and ate my red two
