Takin' turns is better than one

Takin' turns

Grover: At telling a story

Takin' turns

Oscar: You're startin' to bore me

Grover: Ernie? Do you understand?

Ernie: Yes, Grover.

Grover: Tell me.

You're in good company (in good company)
Or jumpin' rope or helpin' out
Just take your turn and see (take your turn and see)

Grover: Oh, I understand now!
