附上主任很喜歡的一首歌,Just The Way You Are!
Billy Joel特別為芝麻街的Oscar改編了歌詞,So sweeeeeet!

Just The Way You Are

written and performed by Billy Joel
parody of Billy's hit Just The Way You Are

Billy: Don’t go changing just to please me,
‘Cause being friendly’s not your style.
Don’t want to hear you
Saying, “Thank you”

(Oscar: I won’t!)

‘Cause I would hate to see you smile.

(Oscar: I never smile!)

Just be grouchy, really grouchy.
You’ve done it pretty well so far.

(Oscar: Oh, a compliment! This is getting pretty sticky!)

I took the bad times; I’ll take the worst times.
I’ll take you just the way you are.

(Oscar: The way I am, huh? Hah! I’ll change that!)

(Oscar disappears into trash can, and Marlee looks surprised.)

Don’t go trying some new fashion.

(Oscar comes up wearing an orange wig.)

(Oscar: How’s this?)

(Marlee runs her fingers through the wig.)

I wouldn’t like you debonair.
Just keep that can you stash your trash in.
Don’t even try to comb your hair.

(Oscar takes off the wig.)

(Oscar: Just get lost, huh?!)

Don’t try friendly conversation.

(Oscar: It wasn’t friendly!)

Don’t change the oil in your car.
We just want someone that we can’t talk to.
We want you just the way you are.

(Oscar: Well, you can’t have me! Ahhh!)

(Oscar goes back down into his trash can for the second time, and Marlee looks surprised again.)

I want to know that you will always be
The same old Oscar that I knew.

(Oscar comes up wearing a disguise with the fake glasses and nose. Marlee jumps back.)

(Oscar: Is this him?! Heh-heh!)

Oh, please just keep on talking mean to me.
It makes me happy when you do.

(Oscar goes back down for a third time and comes up wearing an Indian-type mask.)

I said I love you, and that’s forever.
And this I promise from the heart.

(Oscar smacks his hand to his forehead exasperatingly.)

We couldn’t love you any better.

(Oscar: This is the mushiest thing I ever heard!)

We love you just the way you are.

(An instrumental solo where Marlee hugs Oscar.)

(Oscar: What are you doing?! What’s this?! HEY! Never hug a grouch!
You’re kissing me! Ahhh! Never do that to a grouch! Ugh!)

(Music stops.)

Oscar: You really know how to hurt a grouch!

Billy: Enjoy your piano!

Marlee: Have fun!

(They leave and call goodbye.)

Oscar: You don’t have to give me this piano! I don’t want it! I heard this piano! It’s tuned!
Grouches hate love songs!

(He brightens up a bit.)

...except this one kinda really made me angry! (Sighs)
