Look How Fast We Forget is a Sesame Street song. In it, a woman is trying to get Oscar to remember how joyful he was as a baby so he will have more Christmas spirit.

Lyrics Edit

You were a happy tyke

we couldn't help but like.

You were what Christmas should be.

Try to remember when

everyone was your friend.

You filled the whole world with glee.

When people looked at you,

they would go "coochie-coo".

You were the best baby yet!

Then you grew up, you see,

big, green and grouchily.

Look at how fast we forget!

Lying there in your can.

Everyone was your fan.

You were the toast of the street.

You loved our Christmas trash.

You even offered cash!

Always so generous and sweet.

Never a moan or whine.

Hanging your welcome sign.

You were the season's best bet!

You were like old Saint Nick.

How come it didn't stick?

Look at how fast we forget.

Oscar, remember.

Try to remember.

It happened. It honestly did.

Though you won't buy it.

You'll probably deny it.

You were the Christmas-y kid!

You were a happy tyke,

we couldn't help but like.

You were what Christmas should be.

Try to remember when

everyone was your friend.

You filled the world up with glee!

When people looked at you,

they would go "coochie-coo"

You were the best baby yet!

Then you grew up, you see,

big, green, and grouchily.

Look at how fast we for---

Look at how fast we forget!
