Baby Bear's version

For this number, Lena Horne notices that Grover is shy. Grover explains that while he does know Lena, he doesn't know her well. Lena helps him overcome his shyness by singing "How Do You Do?" in which she talks about various ways to greet somebody. Grover repeats these steps, and eventually, he is no longer shy.
