The Lyrics

I've done many of the much-parodied songs before, but never the Queen epic. Hang onto your seats, and make sure your inertial dampers are online, 'cause in the words of Alanis Morrisette, "Oo-woo, this could be messy..." Especially the last three lines.
Cast: Is this the real life? Is this just Sesame?
Caught on a soundstage to escape from reality?
Open your eyes, look up to the lights and see...

Big Bird: I'm just a big bird, I need no sympathy.
Because I'm squeaky-voiced, yellow nose
eight feet high, with six toes.
Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to me
or Snuffy.

Elmo: Elmo just kill a man
put this gun against his head
pull the trigger, now he dead.
Elmo life had just begun
but now he go and throw it all away.
Elmo, oo-woo-woo-woo, didn't mean to make him die.
If Elmo not back on the Street tomorrow
carry on, carry on, 'cause it doesn't really matter.

The Count: Too late! Your time has come!
One-two-three-four-five-six times did you fire in your crime!
Goodbye, furry monster! You've got to go!
One-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight years in jail!

Elmo: Elmo, oo-woo-woo-woo (Cast: Any way the wind blows)
doesn't wanna die, sometimes wish Elmo not born at all...

(guitar break)

Big Bird: I see a great big furry elephant of brown.
Cast: Silly bird! Silly bird! Sure have some imagination!
Snuffleupagus ain't really existing here!

Bert: Pigeon dancing!
Ernie: Rubber duckie!
Bert: Pigeon dancing!
Ernie: Rubber duckie!
Bert: Pigeon dancing, paper clips!
Ernie: Magnifico, whoa-whoa-whoa...

Big Bird: I'm just a big bird, no one believes me.
Cast: He's just a big bird, living in a fantasy.
Where is the snuffleupagus of whom he speaks?

Elmo: Easy come, easy go, please let Elmo go!
The Count: One, two three! (joined by Cast) No, we will not let you go!
Ernie and Bert: Let him go!
The Count: One, two three! (joined by Cast) No, we will not let you go!
Ernie and Bert: Let him go!
The Count: One, two three! (joined by Cast) No, we will not let you go!
Ernie and Bert: Let him go!
The Count: Will not let you go!
Elmo: Let me go!
The Count: Never, never let you go!
Elmo: Let me go! Never let me go, ohhhh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!

Big Bird: Oh mama mia, mama mia!
Cast: Mama mia, let me go!
Kermit the Frog has a Muppet Show audition for me, for me, for meeeeeeee!

(instrumental break, Muppets bang their heads)

Big Bird: So you think you can mock this bird who's eight feet high?
So you think I'm too big and that I cannot fly?
Ohhhh, Snuffy, can't do this to me, Snuffy!
Just gotta get out! Just gotta get right out of here!

(guitar break)

Cast: Oo-woo, ooh yeah, ooh yeah.

Grover (bows and shakes his head): Nothing really matters.
Anyone can see nothing really matters.

Cookie Monster: Nothing really matters but...cookie!
(takes one, holds it up, examines it as guitar gently weeps, then eats)
Um, yum, yum, yum, yum, yuuuum!
Ahhhhhhhh!
Following "Cookie," based on the J.J. Cale/Eric Clapton song "Cocaine," That's two, two "Sesame Street" parodies I have written! Ah-ah-ah! This "Sesame Street" parody was brought to you by the letter Q (for Queen), and by the Number 5 (I hope).

Dude! That was one of the funniest songs I have read in a long time! Great job!

Doing this song and American Pie are sort of a rite of passage for everyone on this website. Pretty good, it was especially funny that you chose Elmo of all muppets to be the one who pulled the trigger.

Only problem is i think big bird is actually 7 feet tall - but i still gave it straight fives.

Thanks, everyone. I just had a feeling I could nail this one. Tone-Def: They measured Big Bird once. I saw it around 1980 or so, well within my memory. Maria got a tape measure and discovered that he is eight feet, two inches tall. John Jenkins: I knew I'd forgotten somebody important among the "classic" Muppets, not counting those who live in the post-1980s "Furry Arms" wing of the show, but I had to put in Elmo, who got so popular in the mid-80s and since that he just took over the show, like Steve Urkel on "Family Matters" and Jack on "Will & Grace." I suppose I could blame it on the Two-Headed Monster, and say one wanted to include Oscar and the other one didn't, but I've got a better excuse for forgetting him: Oscar was unavailable. He was out on a date with Shirley Manson. You know, the lead singer of the band Garbage.

Michael, you are an icon of imagination!!! Nail it you did!! Fives across the board! Clever little George Harrison reference there in your closing "stage directions" too. But Elmo wastin' a dude? I guess somebody musta tickled him one time too many . . .

Thank you to everyone who voted. I realize the parodies of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world (as Humphrey Bogart might have said), but your reaction to "Sesamian Rhapsody" gave me the biggest lift I've had in ages. A close second is the work of new Yankee star Hideki Matsui, about whom I will now have to come up with something.

three little people? is michael pacholek really a trio?
Michael Pacholek - April 14, 2003 - Report this comment
Last I checked, I only had two discernable personalities. One is a little unbalanced and is very willing to get violent, and thus could be considered "conservative," but it's the liberal who controls the brain and the typing fingers. Well, the other one controls ONE of the fingers.

Michael, it would be two fingers...one on each hand

Out of all the parodies written in the history of this site, this has to be in the top 5! Tone-Def, if I only had your talent.

This one predates my amiright arrival, but fortunately it's never too late to return to Sesame Street. Many great lines. My fave: "Nothing really matters but...cookie!"

As I was singing this song to myself, I had to...pause on several occasions to laugh my freaking butt off. This was a masterpiece!! Keep up the great work.
