Sesame Street Elmo's Song

Elmo, Big Bird and Snuffy sing "Elmo's Song."

"Elmo's Song" is a Sesame Street song introduced in Episode 2710.

Elmo writes his own song and sings it for Big Bird and Mr. Snuffleupagus, who then wish that they had their own songs. Elmo lets them insert their own names into the lyrics, resulting in "Big Bird's Song" and "Snuffy's Song." In those versions, the other two characters provide the backing vocals. The sketch ends with Elmo calling for Gordon and Gabi, so that they can have their own songs. Most releases cut this ending.

A variation of "Elmo's Song" is used as the opening theme for "Elmo's World."
