"(I Can't Get No) Co-Operation" is a Sesame Street parody of the Rolling Stones song "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" (with the middle section modeled after "Ruby Tuesday"), performed by The Cobblestones.

Lead singer Mick Swagger sings about how whenever he plays at the park, nobody around helps him with his games: "Every time I start to play, everyone just runs away. Couldn't get no cooperation if I tried!"

By the end of the song, the other band members eventually cooperate and play hide and seek with him.
