SCENE 1 Word makes its way around the street that Pete Seeger is visiting today. Bob, Mr. Hooper, Gordon, Susan, and the kids gather outside Hooper's Store as Pete plays the banjo and sings "The Green Grass Grew All Around." Pete asks Mr. Hooper for a glass of "Adam's ale" and notes that a lot of people in the country still get their water from a well. He sings a duet of "There's a Hole in the Bucket" with Susan. At the song's conclusion, Gordon introduces someone else who would like to play some music for Pete.

SCENE 3 Pete, Gordon, and the kids observe a patchwork quilt that Susan and Jennie made. Pete tells Susan she's "sewing together the world" and relates people to patches: we each have our own individual designs and create something beautiful when we're all put together. He sings "Everybody Loves Saturday Night," teaching the verses to the kids in different languages.

SCENE 5 Jennie gives Susan more patches for their quilt. Pete notes that each patch must have been part of a different dress and sings "Will You Wear Red," a song about a girl who can't make up her mind what dress to wear. Gordon observes that animals don't have to pick out clothes - they already have plenty of covering.

SCENE 8 Oscar the Grouch notices there's been a lot of singing today, but not about things he likes. He asks Pete if he knows any songs about garbage, so Pete sings "70 Miles" and "The People Are Scratchin'," which Oscar finds funny (and itch-inducing).
