Play Blue's Clues

Play Blue's Clues

Steve: We've gotta find a paw print
That's the first clue
We put it in our notebook and now what do we do?
Blue's Clues, Blue's Clues

The Viewers: Blue's Clues!

Steve: We've gotta find another paw print
That's the second clue
We put it in our notebook
Now what do we do?
Blue's Clues, Blue's Clues.

The Viewers: Blue's Clues!

Steve: We've gotta find another paw print
That's the third clue.
We put it in our notebook and, well, you know what to do
Blue's Clues, Blue's Clues.

The Viewers: Blue's Clues!

Steve: Well we sit down in our Thinking Chair
And think, think, think

'Cause when we use our minds
And take a step at a time
We can do anything...

Blue: Bow.

Steve: That we want to do.
