Grover: Uh, uh?

Lena: Grover?

Grover: Uh? Y ... yeah?

Lena: Grover?

Grover: Yeah.

Lena: What's the matter?

Grover: Well, I ... I ... I kind of shy.

Lena: You're shy with me?

Grover: Well, I know you, but I don't uh, know you too well. I ...

Lena: Awww, don't be shy. You know something? When you're shy, you never give people a chance to find out that they like you, that they want to tell you so.

Grover: Mmm?

Lena: I've got a little system I use sometimes. Mind coming closer to me?

Grover: Okay, shall I sit on your lap?

Lena: I've got ... Yeah, get in my lap here.

Grover: Okay.

Lena: I've got a little system I use when I'm feeling shy. And you know what I do?

Grover: Mm-mm.

Lena: I say -

sung:

How do you do?
Hold out your hand.

(Grover: Yeah?)

Smile and say "Glad to meet you".

(Grover: I don't know ... I ...)

Hope you are well
Happy you're here
Thoughts I feel when I greet you

(Grover: Like that.)

People know you by the little things you do

(Grover: Yeah?
Lena: Yeah.)

Show someone you care, watch them care for you

(Grover: Hmm?)

Say, how do you do?
Right from the heart
Hand in hand for the very first time
So very nice to meet a brand new friend of mine!

spoken:

Grover: I ... I think I understand.

Lena: Really?

Grover: I'll try it. Okay?

Lena: Why don't you try to tell me what I said to you.

Grover: Okay. I'll try.
Um. H ... h ... how do you do?
Uh ... Hold out your hand.

Lena: That's right.

Grover: Smile and say "Glad to meet you".

Lena: Oh yes! That's wonderful. Then ...

sung:

Grover: Hope you are well.

(Lena: Really well.)

Happy you're here.

(Lena: Oh, thank you, Grover.)

Thoughts I think when I greet you.

(Lena: Ah, yes!)

spoken:

Grover: And?

Lena: Now listen.

sung:

People know you by the little things you do

(Grover: Really?)

Show someone you care

(Grover: Then what?)

Watch them care for you!

(Grover: That sounds nice.
Lena: Oh yes!)

Both: How do you do?

(Lena: Yes!)

Right from the heart

Lena: Hand in hand for the very first time
So very nice to meet a brand new friend

Both: Of mine!

spoken:

Lena: See, that's all there is to it.

Grover: You know what?

Lena: What?

Grover: I am not shy anymore.

Lena: I'm so glad, Grover! Oh, great!

Grover: Thank you!

Lena: (Kisses Grover's nose and laughs)

Grover: Oh gee. You nice lady. Yeah, good kisser too!
