Theme Song Lyrics

Sunny Day sweepin the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet

Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Street

Come and play everything’s A OK
Friendly neighbors there that’s where we meet

Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Street
How to get to Sesame street
How to get to Sesame Street
How to get to Sesame Street
