We share the lyrics to the song next:

C is for cookie
That’s good enough for me!
C is for cookie
That’s good enough for me!
C is for cookie
That’s good enough for me!
Oh, cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C!

C is for cookie
That’s good enough for me!
C is for cookie
That’s good enough for me!
C is for cookie
That’s good enough for me!
Oh, cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C!

(Spoken interlude)
You know what? A round cookie with one bite out of it looks like a C! A round doughnut with one bite out of it also looks like a C, but it is not as good as a cookie. Oh, the moon sometimes looks like a C, but you can’t eat that! So

C is for cookie
That’s good enough for me!
C is for cookie
That’s good enough for me!
C is for cookie
That’s good enough for me!
Oh, cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C!
Yeah, cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C!
Oh, boy, cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C!

A fantastic programme with some muppet star power and it definitely brought back fond memories for many adults who watched Sesame Street as children.
