    Okay, I do not know the titles to these songs....

    I-stand up straight and tall.

    I do not crawl around much anymore: My rough approximation of a title. Grover sings about how grown he's become.

    Ernie and Grover's Opposite game: Premired this season. (i.e. Ernie: I have many cookies! Grover: I've got just a few!)

    There was according to my Fuzzy memory, a song Grover sang about in and out at a disco, and he kept getting trampled.

    That's al;l the solo ones I can think of.

    As for groups

    Alphabet song- varies.. once with Herry and a group of troubled youths in an ABCD Blue parody.

    Four Furry Friends-with Oscar Cookie and Herry

    Sing-various... he had to sing it once.

    Thirty-two Cracks In the Sidewalk

    5-Climbing Nine Stairs
    There’s a Hole In the Bottom of the Sea
    I Have Feet
    My Furry Little Shadow
    Crossing the Street
    I Am Blue
    I’m Gonna Build the Biggest House You’ve Ever Seen
    Two “G” Sounds – Grover and George-
    The Question Song – Grover and a Little Girl

    to the list....

    I mean both, Does anyone have some of these audio's as MP3 files ?

    Id really like to hear some of those you listed !

    I could make an MP3, I guess... unfortunately, I do not have many Sesame Street CD's to make them off of, that feature Grover (I only have in my actual possetion, Sesame Road... the only other ones I can find, to buy, are Hot Hot Hot, Kid's Classics, Road trip songs, and sometimes platnum hits volume 1)


    however, I have an addition... he sung a verse of "Ain't no mountain you can't climb" on the Follow that Bird movie.

    Did SS lose the rights to "Whenever I Feel Afraid?"

    When I was a kid, that was Grover's signature song, but it seems to have all but vanished. I loved it, and would often whistle when I had to go into dark, scary places. I wish my boy could hear it. I think it's a much better song than "What Do I Do When I'm Alone?"

    It's from "the King and I," which was recently re-mounted on Broadway, so I'm wondering if that's why it's not around anymore.

    Did they lose the rights? If such were the case then that musical number might not have been shown on that 1970 Unpaved episode. Back in those days, a LOT of the songs performed were covers of famous songs.

    Just about every song mentioned so far is in the MC radio rotation.

    I just saw the other day Grover singing "Sticky, Sticky, Bubble Gum" with a little boy.

    Another one is "When Will My Birthday Come?" on the Sesame Street birthday album. :)

    Thought up two more. In one Charlie's resterraunt skit, the whole place served Mexican food adn Gorver sang:

    Granada.... Granada que diece via
    where butter is called mantequilla
    Were you're treated so fine,
    as you come in to dine,
    and we're always delighted to see yah!

    It's funny, because this is the only time I know of when Grover actually used contractions.

    Plus he sang back up on The Destiny's child version of I've got a new way to walk!:p :(

    PS. - that particular clip is on the "Put Down the Duckie" video, part of my ever-growing collection.

    I highly recommend this video for all you non-toddlers out there; it's full of very silly celebrity appearances. My kid doesn't like it much, tho.

    I put it in at parties (on the rare occasions when we have them)
