Coldplay on Sesame Street

This morning on the way to church, “Shiny Happy People” came on Mike’s iPod, and just for fun we listened to “Furry Happy Monsters” after that. Mike turned to me and said, “Coldplay should go on Sesame Street.” Of course, in my opinion, their best song for Sesame Street is “Yellow.” In honor of his suggestion, here is how we believe Coldplay should alter their song. Imagine Chris Martin singing it to Big Bird.

Look at Cookie – Look how his fur is blue
And take a look at you – Yeah, you are all yellow

There’s Oscar here – His fur is mostly green
And he is really mean – But you are all yellow

Elmo came in my head – I saw that he was red
But you are all yellow

Your friends, yeah their fur is toned
The colors of the rainbow
You know I love the colors
You know I love the colors

I saw Grover – He’s covered all in blue
That’s not the same as you – ‘Cause you are all yellow

Ernie is orange, His friend Zoe is too
But Bert looks like you – You are both yellow

Your friends, yeah their fur is toned
The colors of the rainbow
You know they love the colors
You know they love the colors

It’s true
Look how they smile for you – Look how they smile for you
Look how they smile for you – Look how they smile for you
Look how they smile for you – Look how they smile

I see your friends, and how they smile for you
Your yellow feathers too
