SAMMY THE SNAKE
Sesame Street


(spoken)
Sssss! Say hey! I'm Sammy the snake, and I'm here to tell you people something about the letter "S".

(sung)
Oh, I'm Sammy the snake
And I look like the letter "S"ssss.
Oh, yes.

I'm all wiggly and curvy,
And I look like the letter "S"ssss.
I confess.

But do you know the sound
Of Sammy the snake?
Well, the sound of the letter "S"
Is the sound I make.

(spoken)
I say "Sssssss!"
Let me tell you about it. Out of sight.

(sung)
I say "Sssss!" in the morning,
"Sssss!" in the afternoon.

(spoken)
Yes, I do to all my snake friends.

(sung)
I say "See you later, Slinky."
She's my sister.
I say "See you soon."

(spoken)
Yeah, she's super slick.

(sung)
Yeah, I'm Sammy the snake,
And I have to confess
That I look and I sound just like the letter "S".

(spoken)
Now come on, all you children, and make that "S" sound with me. Here we go.
Ssssssssssss! Yeah, that's fine.
That's the sound you hear in the beginning of a word like "sing" or "storytime."
Let's do it again. Ssssssssssss!
Yeah, you hear that sound in the beginning of a word like "seesaw," "silly," "super," "star," or "seven."

(sung)
Yeah, I'm Sammy the snake,
And I have to confess
That I look and I sound just like the letter "S".

(spoken)
Ssssssssssss! So long.
