Sesame Street

Carol: Just..south..of..Mi-ami
There's a snake named Sammy
Who forms a letter S each night on stage

(Sammy the Snake slithers onto centerstage)

Folks just adore Sammy
And what's more, Sammy
Makes a SSS SSS sound that's fast becoming all the rage

Sammy: hissss hisssss

This serpent still thrills me
And it just kills me
To hear him hiss S's clear and true

Sammy: hissss

So..turn on your charm, Sammy
Coil yourself around my arm, Sammy
Sammy the Snake, I'll stake a claim on you

Sammy: Hello, it'ssss me, Sssssammy
That'ssss the name Mammy
Gave me many yearsss ago when I was hatched

(enter 4 swaying S's with top hats like chorus girls)

S-girls: Yes, he's an old troopa
And he feels supa
'Cause the joys of making noises simply can't be matched

Carol: You make me glow, Sammy

Sammy: Oh?

Carol: 'Cause you're so clammy

Sammy: hissss

Carol: Yes, I'd miss the way you hiss if we should part

Sammy: Yessss

Carol: So..please say yes, Sammy

Sammy: Yessss

Carol: Hit me with another S, Sammy

Sammy: hissss

Carol: Sammy, come snake your way into my heart

Sammy: Oh sssure

Carol: Please say yes, Sammy

Sammy: Yesss!

Carol: Hit me with another S, Sammy

Sammy: Esss!

Carol and S-girls: Sammy, I swear my love is true!

Sammy: Oh?

Carol and S-girls: The only snake for me is you!

Sammy: Oh?

Carol and S-girls: Sammy, come snake your way into my heart!!!

Sammy: Oh yessss! Oh yesssss!!!
