Sesame Street: ABC-DEF-GHI Song


BIG BIRD: That says closed. And this sign says sale, yarn. SUSAN: Big Bird, the store’s
closed, you know. BIG BIRD: Oh yes, Susan. I’m just looking at the signs. Because I’m using signs to
practice learning words. SUSAN: Oh, that’s a good idea. How are you doing them? BIG BIRD: Oh, fine. I’m going up and down
Sesame Street and reading all the signs. One up on the corner on the lamp
post says, Sesame Street, right on the sign. SUSAN: Our street sign,
that’s right. BIG BIRD: Just beyond that,
there’s another little sign that says stop. SUSAN: Right, on the corner. The stop sign. Good. BIG BIRD: This one
says sale, yarn. SUSAN: Right. Hey, you’re doing all right. BIG BIRD: But there’s a
word that I saw today. SUSAN: Uh huh. BIG BIRD: I can hardly say it. And I sure don’t know
what it means. SUSAN: Well, why don’t
you tell me? Maybe I can help you. BIG BIRD: Well, it’s
quite a word. You ready to hear it? SUSAN: Sure. BIG BIRD: OK, listen to this. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. SUSAN: I, I beg your
pardon, Big Bird. BIG BIRD: That’s the word. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. SUSAN: Abka what? Where did you see that word? BIG BIRD: Right over
there, in the yard. SUSAN: Oh, in the yard? BIG BIRD: Sure. SUSAN: Oh, there? BIG BIRD: That is some
kind of word. Whoa. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. It’s the most remarkable
word I’ve ever seen. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ,
I wish I knew exactly what I mean. It starts out like an A word,
as anyone can see. But somewhere in the middle,
it gets awfully QR to me. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. If I ever find out just what
this word can mean, I’ll be the smartest bird the
world has ever seen. Or maybe Gordon would
know, or maybe Bob. I could ask them. Then again, it might be kind
of an elephant, or a funny kind of kazoo, or a strange,
exotic turtle that you never see in a zoo. It might be a kind of doggy or a
particular shade of blue, or maybe a pretty flower. Nah, not with a name
like that. Uh uh. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. It’s the most remarkable
word I’ve ever seen. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. I sure wish I knew exactly
what I mean. It starts out like an A word,
as anyone can see. But somewhere in the middle,
it gets awfully QR to me. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. If I ever find out just what
this word can mean, I’d be the smartest bird this world
has ever seen. SUSAN: Oh, Big Bird, that’s
a terrific song. But I really hate to tell you
this, but that’s not a word. BIG BIRD: It’s not? SUSAN: No, Big Bird. This is the alphabet. A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K,
L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z. BIG BIRD: You mean, that’s
the alphabet? SUSAN: That’s right. BIG BIRD: Oh, it’s not a word. SUSAN: No. BIG BIRD: It’s not
ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. SUSAN: No, but you
know what it is? It’s a list of all the letters
that make words. For instance, if we take these
letters here, C, A, and take an R from over here, we
make up our own words. C-A-R, car. BIG BIRD: Oh! SUSAN: Or let’s put the R back
up here where it belongs, and take the T down. And we have another word. C-A-T. See, it’s very useful,
the alphabet. BIG BIRD: Hey, that’s easy.
