I WANT TO HOLD YOUR EAR
Sesame Street


I know I'm an exciting, OK kinda guy
I once had a girlfriend
And she went to pieces every time she saw me
This is the song I sang to her as she was falling apart

(clears his throat)

I held your hand
And told you that
I loved you
You turned around and
Walked right out the door
Seems like holding your hand
Was not enough
So I want to do something more

Oh I want to hold your ear baby
Wanna hold it near baby
Wanna hold your ear
Until you hear that
I love you

And I want to hold your eyes baby
Lovely shape and size baby
Want to hold your eyes
So you'll see and realize that
I love you

I wanna hold your nose
I wanna hold your toes
I won't let you breathe or eat
Until you know the truth
I love you

Oh I wanna hold your hair baby
Show you that I care baby
And it's only fair to tell you
What I intend to do
I'm going to keep what I hold dear
Your nose
Your eyes
Your tooth
Your ears
And I'm gonna hold them 'till
You say you love me tooo!
