Sesame Street Celebrity Lullabies

"Celebrity Lullabies" is a Sesame Street sketch/song featuring Elmo and Ricky Gervais. When Elmo can't get to sleep, Ricky Gervais appears in his bedroom, armed with a guitar. Saying he's from Celebrity Lullabies, he and Elmo have a misunderstanding of his celebrity status. Ricky then sings Elmo a lullaby using words that begin with N ("It's a great letter to fall asleep to.")

As he begins, the song starts out soothing, but then becomes loud when he sings the N sound, which gets too noisy for Elmo to sleep to. Then it goes back to soothing then ends with the noisy part again. Afterward, Elmo is frazzled by the experience and turns Ricky away when he arrives back with a "Celebrity Cup of Warm Milk."
