Bert: I like paperclips.

Ernie: Paperclips?

Bert: Paperclips, I like bottlecaps.

Ernie: Bottlecaps?

Bert: Bottlecaps. I like pigeons.

Ernie: Pigeons?

Bert: That I like.

Both: Still I like you!

Bert: Though I'm not too crazy 'bout your rubber duckie.

Ernie: Though I don't love pigeons.

Both: Still we're awfully lucky 'cause I like you!
