Ernie:
Let's sing a song that everybody knows!
A song that we've all heard before
The tune is simple we know how it goes
With simple words and nothing more
The steady rhythm and the harmony
Makes singing such an easy thing so.....
Let's sing a song that everybody knows
So that everyone can sing!

Bert:
Yeah! Like,
The bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain
The bear went over the mountain to see what he could see

Ernie:
And...
The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Up came the sun and dried up all the rain
So the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again

Bert:
I got one!
A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I-J-K-L-M-N-O-P-Q-R-S-T-U-V-W-X-Y-Z!
Now I know my ABC's. Next time won't you sing with me?

Ernie:
Or...
George Washington Bridge! George Washington Washington Bridge.
George Washington Bridge. George Washington Washington Bridge.
Here comes the sad part.
(sobbing) George Washington Bridge. George Washington Washington Bridge.

Bert: Ernie.........

Ernie:
But it ends really happy, Bert.
GEORGE WAHINGTON BRIDGE! GEORGE WASHINGTON WASHINGTON BRIDGE!

Together:
Oh! Let's sing a song that everybody knows!
A song that we've all heard before!
The tune is simple we know how it goes
With simple words and nothing more
The steady rhythm and the harmony
Makes singing such an easy thing so....
Let's sing a song that everybody knows
So that everyone can sing
So that everyone......can sing!
