Watermelons and Cheese is a Sesame Street song about how you should never answer the phone with simply the phrase "watermelons and cheese" (unless you're a watermelon or a cheese yourself) as that'd be too absurd.

Sesame Street - "Watermelons and Cheese"

Lyrics Edit

Man: Answering the telephone is not so hard to do.

Once you know the secret which I shall show to you.

What you say, that's the key!

And it's easy as it can be!

You can say...

Bert: Hello. No, this isn't Ernie's ducky.

Man: Or perhaps.

Cookie Monster: Hello. You got cookie for me, please?

Man: Or.

The Count: Hello. You have called a number one.

Man: But don't say, "Watermelons and cheese".

Background Singers: No, you don't say.
