Please help with the lyrics

Hi guys,

Please help me parse the song from Sesame Street:



I need it for a lesson for ESL class for 3 year old kids.

This is my lousy attempt to write down the lyrics, but it is very tricky to me.


One day on Sesame street
We wanted something to eat
Something that was healthy and sweet
A yummy juicy treat

We went to Hooper's store
For two peaches, maybe more
How many we weren't sure at all
But then the count said,
"I know how to get those ???
No need to cause a fuss
We will count each one of us"

Oh, he was counting
Finding the amount ???
We found we were five guys
One two three four five
There was a ???
Thunder and the lightning
Were you find??? in the sky
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha

They were real rich???
We needed one each
If we grab a peach
That is what they count??? to teach
We were counting
Finding the amount ???
We counted up to five
One two three four five

One the way down Sesame street
We started feeling beat
We needed to rest our feet
We wanted to take a seat
We looked for a chair or two
How many no one knew
Didn't know just what to do at all
But then the count spoke,
"I know what to do, no joke
No need to cause a fuss
We will count each one of us"

We were counting
Finding the amount ???
Found out we were five guys
One two three four five
??????
Lightning and the thunder
Booming out across the sky
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha

?????
One of us could take a chair
The count helped us make aware
????
We were counting
Finding the amount ???
We counted up to five
One two three four five


That's one vague??? number.
