spoken:

Ernie: And now, we'd like to do a song about our roots.

Bert: Ernie, we're gonna sing about trees?

Ernie: No, Bert. By roots I mean family. Or, as we say here in the country, kin folk.

Bert: We say that here in the country?

Ernie: All the time, Bert. Sometimes we sing about it.

Bert: Wow! Yippee tay ay, Ernie! Okay, here we go!

sung:

Both: Kin folk (kin folk)
Kin folk (kin folk)
Just a way of saying family
Kin folk (kin folk)
Kin folk (kin folk)
Come meet the kin folk on my family tree

Ernie: There's Auntie Sue who sells sea shells
Down by the sandy shore

Bert: That's easy for you to say.
And Uncle Peter Piper
Who picks peppers by the score
Now who else?

Ernie: Well there's cousins Kim and Slim and Mim
And some I've never met

Bert: Hey, and Bernice is just like family... for a pigeon

Both: They're all your
Kin folk (kin folk)
Kin folk (kin folk)
Just a way of saying family
Kin folk (kin folk)
Kin folk (kin folk)
Come meet the kin folk on my family tree

Ernie: Why, you know, Bert,
My Auntie Ernestina used
To live on Sesame

Bert: I remember her. Hey, how about:
My favourite Uncle Ollie
Runs an oatmeal factory

Ernie: And you won't believe this:
But my father's uncle's mother
Was my great-grandmother Bea

Bert: Uhm... Do you mind running that by me one more time, Ernie?

Ernie: Sure, Bert.

Both: They're all my
Kin folk (kin folk)
Kin folk (kin folk)
Just a way of saying family
Kin folk (kin folk)
Kin folk (kin folk)
Come meet the kin folk on my family tree

spoken:

Bert: Hey, watch it, Oscar!

Oscar: Move over, 'cause it's my turn to sing! We grouches got relatives too, you know. Only we don't call them kin folks, we call them can folks! Heh heh heh.

sung:

Oscar: There's Rotten Ron and Nephew Nat
Who always sings off key
Isn't that beautiful?

Bert: Well, it's different...

Oscar: And Dirty Dan's my kinda man
He's into trash like me

Ernie: Oh, Oscar! (giggles)

Oscar: And Sloppy Joe's the grouch to know
His best friend is a flea

Bert & Ernie: Sounds like you've got quite a family

Oscar: I like 'em!

All: They're all your
Kin folk (kin folk)
Kin folk (kin folk)
Just a way of saying family
Kin folk (kin folk)
Kin folk (kin folk)
Come meet the kin folk on my family tree
Come meet the kin folk on my family tree-ee-ee-ee
