I don't remember this song, "Daddy Dear," from my own days on The Street--or should I say from my first days on The Street--but 10 years ago, when a Toronto mom couldn't remember the words to sing it to her son, she created the Sesame Street Lyrics Archive. It's got tons of transcribed lyrics ["1000 any day now!"] and a growing collection of wav and mp3 files, for all your sing-along memory refreshing needs. There's composer information, too, just in case you forgot that there were real, talented people with their hands up those Muppets' butts.
And there's a growing collection of clips on YouTube, too, like "Daddy Dear," which has that slightly folksy, slightly funky waa-waa pedal sound to it like the best early Street songs do.
PS: Could someone please find a complete version of the four-armed Indian guy counting, please? And the Spanish version as well? Because that thing is a work of art. Thanks.
