I Hope That Somethin' Better Comes Along
spoken:
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 Kermit, Kermit the Frog
Rowlf: Oh. Rowlf, Rowlf the Dog here. Pleased to meet ya
I'm no Heifetz, but I get by. 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 something 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

spoken:
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

spoken:
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

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