Read the lyrics here Man Or Muppet.
With only one competitor in the category, Bret McKenzie won an Oscar lat night for his song for "The Muppets" called "Man or Muppet". The track won Best Original Song at the 84th Annual Academy Award, beating out Rio's "Real or Rio". "He's just a normal frog," McKenzie said of Kermit the Frog. "And like many stars here, he's a lot shorter in real life."

The songwriter, who is half of comedy folk duo Flight of the Conchords, also thanked Jim Henson and his team for creating the "magical world" of the Muppets. "It's a true honor to work in the shadows of such legends," he beamed.
