"Don't Take Your Ones to Town" is a Sesame Street parody of the Johnny Cash song "Don't Take Your Guns to Town" from his 1959 album The Fabulous Johnny Cash.

The Sesame Street version features Big Bird, Count von Count and the Countess. Big Bird plays "Birdie-Big", a cowpoke who counts to 1 all over town despite his friend's (Johnny) warning. When he meets the Count and Countess, he finds he can't count them, because they are two. They offer to teach him to count higher.
