IMAGINE THAT
Sesame Street


Sometimes I imagine
That I would like to be
A knight in shining armor
In a castle by the sea

A knight in shining armor with a princess by my side
I'd have a magic feather and a horse that I could ride
And the king would say, "Sir Ernie, you're so handsome and so brave
Please rid us of this dragon breathing fire in his cave"

And I'd get on my horse and I'd start to ride
I'd travel my way through the countryside
I'd come at last to the dragon's cave
And I'd yell, "Mr. Dragon, you'd better behave!"
And the dragon would be so scared of me
That he'd run away, and the kingdom would be free!

And I'd tip my hat
Imagine that
Imagine thaaaaaaaat
Imagine that!

Sometimes I imagine
That I would like to be
A daring bold explorer
Sailing far across the sea

I'd set out on a sailing ship to find a distant land
I'd gaze across the ocean with my telescope in hand
And the captain would say, "Ernie, there's a big storm drawing near,
You're our finest bravest sailor; you must grab the wheel and steer!"

And I'd grab the wheel in the wind and rain
I'd steer the ship through the hurricane
I'd guide the ship with a steady hand
I'd lead the way toward a brand new land
I'd spy the land lying safe and near
And I'd cry "Land-ho!", and the crew would cheer!

And I'd tip my hat
Imagine that
Imagine thaaaaaaat
Imagine that!

Sometimes I imagine
That I would like to be
A person who's named Ernie
Who looks quite a lot like me

Who likes the things that I like
And who does the things I do
And I don't have to imagine
Because I'm Ernie!
Me, that's who!

(nifty Ernie laugh)

And I'd tip my hat
Imagine that
Imagine thaaaaaaat
Imagine that!
