because susan was wondering...

...about my favorite song sung by ernie on "sesame street." this is it, and if you watch it, maybe you'll understand the sentiment i feel when i hear it. i've been a lifelong sesame street fan and am SO GLAD that s is showing interest in it again after a few years off. i sit and watch it with her!

there's another version of this song with aaron neville that is simply amazing, and a version sung with shawn colvin that is very nice as well.

Melissa, you are such a cutie with such a delightful personality. This song lets me see that in you.

I don't think this song came out until after my children were past the sesame street stage.

BTW, I see that your husband has surpassed his goal for the Ride for Kids. That's great. I'm still going to pledge some on the 25th, which is payday.

That is a great song but I don't remember it. :) I was a rubber ducky person as well as the Rain song that they did on the show. Dang it, I wish I remembered the name. lol

ml-- thanks for listening!

autumn's mom-- but you secretly watched it all by yourself, didn't you? :)

christie-- ernie rocks! but grover was always my fave.

booklogged-- thank you! and yes, tommy's up to $1560! amazing!

lover of books-- are you talking about the rainy day song that went "it's raining outside so i can't go out and play... why does it have to rain, anyway?" my little bro watched that one!

Oh, what a beautiful song, I can totally see why you like it so much! Maybe I should watch more Sesame Street! And isn't Youtube one of the handiest internet tools we have? :)

I enjoyed this song then, and I like it even more now. Thanks for sharing it with us.

I was a Sesame Street girl too. I thought Ernie was awesome, but my fave was Grover. :) I want to hear the other versions of this too!

I love that song and also have been a lifetime fan of Seseme Street. I have a dvd with just some of the characters singing different songs. I like when T asks me to put it in. It gives me a good feeling, deep down inside.
