Joyride with the Grouch?

We know that Oscar’s the Grouch,
but hey, it makes no marketing sense
to scare the kiddies away,
if you want them to slot in a coin to take the ride.
So let’s give him a smile!

We know that Barney’s always friendly,
so it makes much marketing sense
to keep the kiddies coming,
if you want them to slot in a coin to take the ride.
So let’s keep him a-smiling!

But even so, discerning kiddies will know
it’s unlike Oscar to smile, and keep away?
Be the friendly Barney in everyday life then, not the grouchy Oscar!
Lest kiddies think you’re an Oscar up to no good when you smile,
out just to take them for a ride!
