Let's Sing a Song That Everybody Knows was written for the Sesame Street Sing-Along! album.
At the album's open, Bert and Ernie drive a bus to visit Bert's Uncle Louie. However, as Bert knows that it will take a long time to get to where they are going, Bert tells Ernie that he would like to have something to do while they are waiting. After figuring out what they can't do on a bus, Ernie decides that they can sing a song that everybody knows, starting with the song "Let's Sing a Song That Everybody Knows", and leading to a medley of songs. First, Bert sings "The Bear Went Over the Mountain", then Ernie sings "The Eensey Weensey Spider", then Bert sings "The Alphabet Song", and then Ernie sings "George Washington Bridge", which, as Ernie says, "Even if you don't know this song, the words are very easy".
The track was edited for rereleases such as Sing-Along Travel Songs, omitting some of the earlier dialogue, including a reference to picking up their friends along the way.
