Cookie Monster

Lyrics

Your sitting beside me in my kitchen you
You got your laptop out, I got my laptop out
We’re both getting distracted your
Your reading Mashable, I’m tumbling teenage posts

And we’re both adults now
We got some money coming
In and going out
Well kinda, you do at least
But I’ll still live at home
When I hit fifty years of age
Going at this rate

So people ask me
To switch the off button
Put back my guitar
Tell’em who I think I am and what I’m after
I tell’em late at night
I hit the cookie jar
Cause I’m a twenty-something Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster

You take your headphones off and I think
I better do that too and turn to chat to you
You’ve got some chocolate stuck on your teeth
I dive to grab the pack, you hold and kiss me back

And we’re both adults now
We like to hold each other close
When we’re home without the folks
Cause that can get awkward right? But
But we can’t procreate
When mum wants me to clean the plates
And dad just got home late

And so they ask me
To switch the off button
Put back my guitar
Tell’em who I think I am and what I’m after
I tell’em late at night
I hit the cookie jar
Cause I’m a twenty-something Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster

And sorry if that’s not the answer you were after
But I’m big and I’m furry and I get hungry at strange hours
Strange hours
And sorry mum if I’m not the best daughter
But it’s something that I’m trying to figure out
Still trying to figure out

When people ask me
To switch the off button
Put back my guitar
Tell’em who I think I am and what I’m after
I tell’em late at night
I hit the cookie jar
Cause I’m a twenty-something Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I’m a Cookie Monster
