"If Me Had That Magic Wand" is a Sesame Street song from a season 45 episode.

After seeing the wonders of what Abby's magic wand is capable of, Cookie Monster sings about the different ways he can use the way to make cookie magic.

In an article for NPR, the writing process for the song was touched upon:

[Tom] Kitt described the song using an old-school musical-theater term. It's "a soaring, emotional 'I want' moment," he said, a readily identifiable, recognizably Broadway kind of sound.[1]

Tom Kitt performed the song live at a Lincoln Center event in 2015, featuring an extra verse not performed in the broadcast version.
