"Give Your Friend an Easter Egg for Christmas" is a song featured in the Sesame Street Christmas special Elmo Saves Christmas. It is sung by the Easter Bunny (Harvey Fierstein) as he tries to sell off his Easter eggs as Christmas gifts and demonstrates their many uses.


Easter Bunny: Buy your friends an Easter egg for Christmas
Easter eggs are useful as can be
Take your Christmas money to your local bunny
And you can lay an egg under the Christmas tree

Easter eggs no longer just for Easter
Now that we got Christmas every day
It's the universal gift, so give a pal a lift
And buy a Christmas Easter egg today!

Female Customer #1: So what do you do with them?
Easter Bunny: What can we do with them, huh?
Elmo: You hide it!
Easter Bunny: Yeah! And you can roll them on the White House lawn.
Female Customer #2: Really? What else?
Easter Bunny: What else can you do?

You could make a nose with it
You could smell a rose with it
You could touch your toes with it
You could even pose with it

You could bake a pie with it
You could make an eye with it
You could name it Fred (Hi, Fred!)
Or break it on your head!

Or if you have the time and get the chance
You can give them tiny skirts and teach them how to dance
Un, deux, trois (One, two, three)
Le can-can!

Hens: Now don't forget who made them (Bawk, bawk!)
We're the hens who laid them (Bawk, bawk, bawk, bawk!)

Easter Bunny: So give your friends an Easter egg for Christmas
Hens: For Christmas!
Easter Bunny: We only got a few, so don't delay
Hens: Don't delay!
Easter Bunny: Here's the chance to grab it, see your local rabbit
Easter Bunny, Hens: And buy a lovely Easter Egg for Christmas today!
Easter Bunny: Ha-cha!
