Spoken:
Elmo: Ummm, Ms. Schurr?

Diane: Oh, yes, well would you call me Deedles, please, Elmo?

Elmo: Okay, Deedles. (laughs) What are you doing?

Diane: Well, I'm reading braille. It's a system devised for blind people who can't see to read print.

Elmo: Oooooh. If Deedles is blind, and can't see Elmo, then how does Deedles know what Elmo is like?

Diane: Well, one way that I know is by listening to the sound of your voice.

Elmo: You mean Deedles can tell what Elmo is like just by listening to Elmo's voice?

Diane: Sure.

Elmo: Wow! What else, what else?

Diane: Well, I can tell by touch, that's one sense that we use a great deal. (she touches his arms) Let me see. Oh gosh, ya got skinny arms, mine aren't quite that skinny!

Elmo: Wow, so Deedles can find out about Elmo by listening and by touching.

Diane: That's right.

Elmo: Any other way?

Diane: Well, by smelling ya, I can smell ya, do you mind?

Elmo: No, no, no.

Diane: Let me get a whiff here. (she smells Elmo) Cute little monster smell! That's alright, Elmo!

Elmo: Thank you.

Diane: Oh, sure.

Elmo: So, touching or listening or smelling gives Deedles ideas of what Elmo is like, even if Deedles can't see Elmo?

Diane: Absolutely, because the ideas and the thoughts come from withinside (her word, not mine!) our heads.

Elmo: Wow!

(music starts)

Diane: Isn't that a kick?

Sung:
I had a thought
Didn't find it on the ground
Do you know where thoughts are found
Very simply said
The thought came from my head
Got it from my head
Thoughts come from your head
From your head
Dooot - un dooot - a - dee - daaa

Elmo: Dooot - un dooot - a - dee - daaa

Diane: I had a dream
Had it lying fast asleep
Down by where the willows weep
On a grassy bed
The dream came from my head
Got it from my head
Dreams come from your head
From your head
Dooot - un dooot - a - dee - daaa

Elmo: Dooot - un dooot - a - dee - daaa

Diane: I found a song
Found it whistling in the rain
I found a song
Found it singing in my brain
The song came from my head
Right here in my head
Songs come from your head
From your head
Dooot - un dooot - a - dee - daaa

Elmo: Dooot - un dooot - a - dee - daaa

Diane: Thoughts come from your head
Dreams come from your head
Songs come from your head
From your head
Dooot - un dooot - a - dee - daaa

Elmo: Dooot - un dooot - a - dee - daaa

Both: scat (I can't write it all out!)
