KERMIT: Hi, ho, Kermit the Frog
here with the cultural part of the Sesame
Street News. Because today we’re speaking to
you from the home of that very famous songwriter, Mr.
Don Music, who’s writing a brand new hit song right now. Let’s see how he’s
doing, shall we? Why not? DON MUSIC: [SINGING] Mary had a little lamb, little
lamb, little lamb. Mary had a little lamb, it’s
fleece was white as snow. And everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went, and everywhere that Mary went,
the lamb was sure to– uh– to– uh, uh– to– oh, I’ll never get it. Oh, I’m sorry, Lulu Hick. Oh. [PRESSING ON ALL OF THE PIANO
KEYS AT ONCE WITH HEAD] KERMIT: Excuse me. Pardon me. Don, Mr. Music, excuse
me, Don? ten I’m Kermit the Frog
of Sesame Street News. DON MUSIC: Oh. KERMIT: What seems to
be the trouble? DON MUSIC: Well, it’s
my new song. I can’t find a word to
rhyme with snow. Why, I must have a lyric that
sounds like snow, something that lambs do that
sounds like snow. KERMIT: A rhyme for snow. Well, listen. I’m good at rhymes. I do a rhyme all the time. You hear that? I did a rhyme just then. DON MUSIC: That’s very nice. But it won’t help me. KERMIT: So you want the
one that lambs do. DON MUSIC: Right. I’ll never get it, never! Oh! [PRESSING ON ALL OF THE PIANO
KEYS AT ONCE WITH HEAD] KERMIT: Well, you’ll
hurt yourself in the head there, Don. Tell me– Don– you OK? DON MUSIC: Yes. KERMIT: What do little
lambs do, anyhow? DON MUSIC: Well, well,
they go, baa. And, well, they run
around a lot. That’s it. They run. All the time, they run,
run, run, run. KERMIT: Run, run. That’s it. DON MUSIC: That’s it? KERMIT: Run. Yes, that’s a good one. DON MUSIC: Oh. KERMIT: All right, get this. Mary had a little lamb. It’s fleece was white as snow. And everywhere that Mary went,
the lamb was sure to run. DON MUSIC: Oh, but that doesn’t
rhyme with snow. It must sound like snow. KERMIT: Well, it doesn’t have
to sound like snow. DON MUSIC: Of course it does. KERMIT: No, it doesn’t. DON MUSIC: Oh. KERMIT: Oh, listen. We can change that part. DON MUSIC: We can? KERMIT: Sure. Sure, change it around. Get this. Mary had a little lamb. It’s fleece was yellow
as the sun. And everywhere that Mary went,
the lamb was sure to run. DON MUSIC: No, I don’t
think that’ll work. Lambs aren’t yellow. I mean, who ever heard
of a yellow lamb? KERMIT: Well, I’ve heard
of a yellow lamb. DON MUSIC: You have? KERMIT: Well, not many. But, well, we can– what
else is yellow? Something else is yellow. DON MUSIC: I don’t know. Canaries are yellow. KERMIT: Canaries. You got it. DON MUSIC: That’s it? KERMIT: Sure. DON MUSIC: Oh. KERMIT: Ready? Mary had a little canary. It was yellow as the sun. And everywhere that Mary went,
the canary was sure to run. DON MUSIC: No, that
won’t work. Canaries don’t run. They fly mostly, I think. KERMIT: True, true, true. You got a point. We can correct that. You ready? DON MUSIC: How? How are we going to
correct that? KERMIT: Get ready. Here it comes. Mary had a little canary. It was bluer than the sky. And everywhere that Mary went,
the canary was sure to fly. DON MUSIC: But canaries
aren’t blue! KERMIT: [MUMBLE]. Um. DON MUSIC: I’ll never
get it, never. You won’t help. Oh! [PRESSING ON ALL OF THE PIANO
KEYS AT ONCE WITH HEAD] KERMIT: Good heavens. Don, are you OK? DON MUSIC: Oh, ah, oh. KERMIT: Wait a minute. I got the answer. Hey, Don? DON MUSIC: Yes. KERMIT: Give Mary a bicycle. All you have to do is
give Mary a bicycle. DON MUSIC: A bicycle. KERMIT: Sure, a bicycle can be
any color you want it to be. DON MUSIC: Say, I like that. Yeah, I like that. Let me write that down. KERMIT: Sure. Now, what color? What color would you like the
bicycle to be there, Don? DON MUSIC: Color? Red. Yes, that’s it. Red. I like Red for bicycles. KERMIT: OK, OK, OK. Get this. You ready? DON MUSIC: Hold on. KERMIT: Here we go. Marry had a little bicycle. It was painted red as fire. And whenever Mary wanted
to take a ride, the bicycle had a flat tire. DON MUSIC: I like it. I like it. KERMIT: You do? DON MUSIC: Oh, that’s great. KERMIT: It is? DON MUSIC: You got a great
talent for writing songs. KERMIT: I do? Yes? DON MUSIC: You can be
my biggest hit. KERMIT: Wonderful. DON MUSIC: Would you
like to hear it? KERMIT: Certainly, it
would be an honor. DON MUSIC: Fine. KERMIT: Ladies and gentleman,
live and in person, here is Don Music, doing his
new hit song. DON MUSIC: [SINGING] Mary had a bicycle,
bicycle, bicycle. Mary had a bicycle. It was pink and red as fire. BACKUP SINGERS: [SINGING] Mary, Mary. DON MUSIC: And whenever
Mary wanted a ride? BACKUP SINGERS: [SINGING] What? DON MUSIC: [SINGING] That’s right, wanted a ride. BACKUP SINGERS: [SINGING] Oh! DON MUSIC: [SINGING] She wanted a ride. DON MUSIC AND BACKUP
SINGERS: [SINGING] And whenever Mary
wanted a ride– DON MUSIC: [SINGING] The bicycle had a flat tire. BACKUP SINGERS: [SINGING] Mary, Mary. DON MUSIC: [SINGING] Red, red, red, red as fire. DON MUSIC AND BACKUP
SINGERS: [SINGING] Flat, flat, flat, flat,
flat, tire. Mary had a bicycle. DON MUSIC: [SINGING] But it always had a flat tire. DON MUSIC AND BACKUP
SINGERS: [SINGING] Mary, Mary, flat tire.

  1. I just thought of another one: "Mary had a little car, it was painted as yellow as the sun; and whenever Mary wanted a ride, the car was sure to run."

    I wonder if anyone thought of that while they were writing this skit.

  2. Can't believe Mr. Music never suffered a concussion from the countless times he banged his head on the piano!  Guess he's literally hardheaded.

  3. Hey, did anyone notice that Don Music is a leftie? I have watched this countless times before but didn't notice that until now. I'm not a leftie but thought that was rather interesting.

  4. [PRESSING ON ALL OF THE PIANO KEYS AT ONCE WITH HEAD] The subtitles' attempt to describe what Don does to that poor piano!

  5. I love that Don Music. Not only is he a fatalistic drama queenwith major self-esteem issues, he's a plagiarist. nice of kermit to help him write something original. Imagine how hard he'd hit his head on the keys if he tried publishing what he had before, when the backlash came in.

  6. this clip alone destroys anything Elmo related in modern Seseme Street. lol.

    I miss Seseme Street when Kermit was in charge. lol.

  7. Here's what we learned today:
    – The word "run" doesn't rhyme with the word "snow."
    – Lambs are not yellow, they're white.
    – Canaries don't run, they fly.
    – Canaries aren't blue, they're only yellow.
    – If you set your bicycle on fire, it will get a flat tire.

  8. I'd heard about Don Music from books about the history of SESAME STREET, but until now, I had never seen a sketch with him.

  9. What have also worked in the fly part is "Mary had a little blue jay! It was bluer than the sky! And everywhere that Mary went, the blue jay was sure to fly!

  10. Don Music passed away back in '08. His last album "Dreaming of my piano", went triple platnium, and he was able to meet and preform with his idol Sir Elton John, on the billboard charting hit "The ABC's of Love." RIP Don. You are missed.

  11. I was practicing my ukulele tonight and said to myself "I'll never get it, never, and this flagged into my head so u had to come watch it.

    I can't remember what I'm saying from one sentence to the next, but I remember Sesame Street sketches from when I was 7.

  12. You are missing a most important thing:
    Mary had a little lamb
    Which means
    Mary was a single mother.

    And go watch, without any child, Queen's "Bicycle Race" 😉

  13. I wish somebody would do a remix of this of him continuously being in his head on the piano instead of just once how about five times a second!? 😂

  14. Don Music kind of had a John Lennon look to him. Can you believe kids actually emulated his banging of his head on the piano? I was probably 6 when this skit aired and I didn’t need to be taught that banging your head on something wasn’t a good idea, I knew it could hurt you.

    I won’t go into what happened to those kids…

  15. Don Music is so melodramatic. He might as well just smash his head through the window or shoot himself with a gun.

  16. Some of the most talented musicians have mental disorders and perhaps through comedy, Sesame Street was educating us that there are people who self-harm and they are emotionally unstable.

  17. We only see Kermits nice side and I presumed miss piggy had the issues but here we see Kermits clear lack of patience. And that your honour is my case for the defence.

  18. Mary had a bicycle
    Bicycle, bicycle
    Mary had a bicycle
    Her bottom's big and fat
    Queen released some songs 'bout her
    Songs 'bout her, songs 'bout her
    Queen released some songs 'bout her
    And…and…Oh, I'll never get it! NEVER!!!!! I know just how you feel when you try to write songs, Don.

    About the sketch: 1:43 He just said the word that would rhyme with "snow". lol

  20. Tell me if you think it would have been a good Don Music skit in which Don Music is trying to "write" the song "The Hokey Pokey" but can't find a word to rhyme with hokey, so with help from Kermit, he ends up writing the song "The Humby Gumby" and singers come in and perform with him the song
    "You put your left hand in, you put your left hand out
    You put your left hand in and you shake it all about
    You do the Humby Gumby and you turn yourself around
    That's what it's all about."
    The idea came from the fact that when I was first exposed to the song "The Hokey Pokey" when I was little, I thought of Pokey from Gumby because I had bendable toys of Gumby and Pokey at the time.

  21. According to the book Sesame Street Unpaved.. Don Music was banned from the show because kids were imitating his headbanging at home.

  22. The Monotones huh? It seems Don Music can cross paths and do a song with practically any sesame street music group…
