Jimmy Fallon & The Roots Join The 'Sesame Street' Gang To Sing Theme Song With Classroom Instruments

Posted: Updated:

To honor the 44th season of "Sesame Street," Jimmy Fallon and The Roots joined Big Bird, Elmo, Cookie Monster and others from the "Sesame Street" gang to squeeze into a "Late Night" dressing room and sing "Can You Tell Me How to Get to Sesame Street?"

Obviously, it may be one of the happiest things ever recorded in human history.



And did Black Thought of The Roots offer up some rhymes about the "Sesame Street" characters? Yes, Black Thought of The Roots offered up some rhymes about the "Sesame Street" characters. And here they are:

"OK, you heard about, through word of mouth
Big Bird is out, he's in the house
He's turnin' up, with Snuffleup
They're really gettin' their hustle up
They stick together like Velcro
There Grover go, there's Elmo
And Cookie Monster there, look he likes
To take selfies with his cell phone
They got a homegirl named Abby
Her last name is Cadabby
I showed her my report card
She said,
[Abby: Not too shabby!]
They got all types of cool kids there
It's lots of fun if you live there
One thing I keep forgettin' about Sesame Street...
How do you get there?"
