Sesame Street Theme Song

1969-present

Jesus, 40 years of Big Bird, Bert & Ernie, etc.

I have seen the theme from Sesame Street credited three ways: “Sesame Street Theme,” “Can You Tell Me How to Get to Sesame Street,” and “Can You Tell Me How to Get to….”

The song was written by Joe Raposo, the show’s first music director. The lyrics of the song is credited to Jon Stone, one of the show’s original producers, and Bruce Hart, an American songwriter.

The song has gone through a number of changes and recording over its 40-year run, but the lyrics and basic melody stay the same.

Sesame Street theme song lyrics

Sunny Day
Sweepin’ the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet

Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to Sesame Street

Come and play
Everything’s A-OK
Friendly neighbors there
That’s where we meet

Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Street
How to get to Sesame Street
How to get to Sesame Street

Watch & listen (the original opening sequence)
