"When I Listen" is a Sesame Street song sung by Kermit the Frog. Kermit sings about the lovely, quiet sounds that you can hear outside at night, including a bullfrog ("Hi, Uncle Ben") and a hoot owl. At the end of the sketch, he starts to hear louder and more raucous sounds, and he ends up surrounded by a cat, a dog, a bear, and a tiger.
