Bert: Well, you'll see Ernie, and I'll tell you what happened too. See --]

Bert: See, I was sitting around
Feeling so blue,
Trying to think what to
Think to do
Then--(CLINK, CLANK, RATTLE, TWEET)--
I suddenly heard something new.

I was sitting around
Trying to sleep
Practicing counting by
Counting sheep
When--(CLINK, CLANK, RATTLE, TWEET)--
I knew I had found something new.

It was just the water pipe when the faucet got turned on,
But it lightened up my life like a nightingale's sweet song!

And now I'm happy with my can and my pan
My whistle or two
'Cause now I know
What I just gotta do;
I go (CLINK, CLANK, RATTLE, TWEET)
And the sky is all sunny and blue,
And (CLINK, CLANK, RATTLE, TWEET)
I bet it'll do it for you!

Ernie: [Gee, that's nice, Bert! Hey--can I join in?

Bert: Ernie, everybody can join in! Kids at home too. Ready? Here it comes...

(CLINK, CLANK, RATTLE, HONK!)

Bert: AAAAhhh! Ernie, you ruined it!

Ernie: Well, I couldn't find a whistle, Bert!

Bert: Well, this time you rattle and I'll tweet.

Ernie: Okay, Bert! (HONK!)

Bert: ERNIE!

Ernie: I just had to put it down, Bert.

Bert: Well, control yourself, huh?

Ernie: Here we go ..

Ernie: There, I did it!]

Bert: *pleasant sigh*

It was just the water pipe when the faucet got turned on,
But it lightened up my life like a nightingale's sweet song

And now I'm happy with my can and my pan
(HONK!) My whistle or two (Ernie!) (Sorry ..)
Now I know what I just got to do;

One last time! -- (CLINK, CLANK, RATTLE, TWEET)
