OVER, UNDER, AROUND, AND THROUGH (THE YO-YO MAN VERSION)
Sesame Street


Yo-Yo Man: Here's a little poem about over, under, around, and through. (He spins his yo-yo in each direction as he names it.)

(Scene changes to show a shipwreck underwater and a big fish.)

Yo-Yo Man: A large and hungry fish named Pete
Decided it was time to eat.
He looked around for a little snack
And finally spotted a guppy called Jack.

(line here? Pete chases Jack over, under, around, and through shipwreck through next verse.)

Yo-Yo Man: And they went over, under, around, and through,
Direct of the good ship Mary Lou.
And they went over, under, around, and through,
Direct of the good ship Mary Lou.

(Scene changes back to Yo-Yo Man.)

Yo-Yo Man: Now, here's another little poem.

(Scene changes to a branch with a green apple hanging from it.)

Yo-Yo Man: This one takes place in an apple tree.

(A worm crawls along the branch.)

Yo-Yo Man: To see how far he could see,
A worm named Willie climbed a tree.
Upon a branch that was very high
Hung the apple of Willie's eye.

(Willie crawls over, under, and around the apple.)

Yo-Yo Man: And he went over the apple, under the apple, around the apple green.
"This is," thought Willie, "the most delightful apple that I have ever seen!"
And he went over the apple, under the apple, around the apple, too.
"And now," thought Willie, licking his chops, "I'm going to go right through!"

(Willie eats his way through the apple, which falls off the branch, leaving Willie hanging from the stem. Scene changes back to Yo-Yo Man.)

Yo-Yo Man: That was all about, over, under, around, and through! (He spins his yo-yo in each direction as he names it. Then the background sucks him up, yo-yo last.) Yeah!
