I Hope That Somethin' Better Comes Along Rowlf: Evenin'...you look like you could use a drink.
Kermit: Yeah, I'd like a grasshopper please.
Rowlf: Hey, can we have a grasshopper for the frog?
Kermit: Uh, that's, that's Kermit...Kermit the Frog.
Rowlf: Oh...Rowlf, Rowlf the dog here. Pleased to meet ya.
I'm no Heifetz, but I get by.

(plays piano)

Rowlf: Let me guess. Broken heart, right?
Kermit: Huh, does it show?
Rowlf: Listen, when you've been tickling the ivories as long as I have,
you've seen a broken heart for every drop of rain, a shattered
dream for every falling star.
Kermit: Exactly. She just walked out on me.
Rowlf: Yeah, typical. That's why I live alone.
Kermit: You do, huh?
Rowlf: You bet. I finish work, I go home, read a book, have a couple of
beers, take myself for a walk, and go to bed.
Kermit: Nice and simple.
Rowlf: Stay away from women, that's my motto.
Kermit: But I can't.
Rowlf: Neither can I, that's my trouble.

Rowlf: You can't live with 'em, you can't live without 'em.
There's somethin' irresistible-ish about 'em.
We grin and bear it 'cause the nights are long.
I hope that somethin' better comes along.

Kermit: I see what you mean.
It's no good complainin' and pointless to holler.

Rowlf: If she's a beauty she'll get under your collar.

Kermit: She made a monkey out of old King Kong,

Both: I hope that somethin' better comes along.

Rowlf: Ah, but what could be better than a saucy Irish setter
When puppy love comes on strong?
Or a collie that's classy, a laddie needs a lassie,
A lover and wife gives you a new leash on life.

Kermit: Uh, was that a new leash on life?

Rowlf: Oh yeah, sorry about that...2, 3, 4

Kermit: I don't mean to scare ya, my friend, but I betcha
Come "Father's Day", the litter bug's gonna getcha;

Rowlf: The urge is righteous, but the face is wrong.

Both: I hope that somethin' better comes along.

Kermit: Still, it's fun when they're fetching,
And agree to see an etching
That you keep at your lily pad.
There is no solution, it's part of evolution,
Rowlf: The pitter patter of soles
The little feet of tadpoles.

Kermit: Uh, Rowlf, tadpoles don't have feet.

Rowlf: Oh. Sorry about that...2, 3, 4

Kermit: There's no limitation to mixin' and matchin'.

Rowlf: Some get an itchin' for a critter they've been scratchin'.
A skunk was badgered the results were strong.
I hope that somethin' better,

Kermit: I hope that somethin' better,

Both: I hope that somethin' better comes along.

Rowlf: It's not often you see a guy that green that has the blues that
bad.
