Sesame Street – La, La, La lyrics

Ernie: [Hi, Bert.]

Bert: [Oh. Hi, Ernie. Hey, I've been sitting here trying to think of what we can do with this here, letter "L".]

Ernie: [Oh. Well, let's see. You know one thing, you can sing sort of a "La La La" song with the letter "L".]

Bert: [Uh, what do you mean?]

Ernie: [Well, there are all kinds of pretty words that begin with "L".] (Music starts.) [You know, you can sing a few "La La La's" and some pretty words, and you'd have a nice little song.]

Bert: ["La La La," like that?]

Ernie: [Sure. Go ahead. Try it.]

Bert: [O. K. Let's see, uh,..]
La, la, la, la. .. Lemon
La, la, la, la, light bulb

Ernie: [Uh-huh.]

Bert: La, la, la, la, lamp post [This is fun.]
La, la, la, la, lump in my oatmeal

Ernie: [Well, that's not quite what I was thinking about, Bert.]

Bert: [No?]

Ernie: [I mean there are a lot of pretty "L" words, and I was sort of thinking of the ones that are more lilting and lovely. You know like...]
La, la, la, la, laughter

Bert: [Oh, yeah. I see.]

Ernie: La, la, la, la, lullaby

Bert: [Oh, like that. Huh?]

Ernie: La, la, la, la, lollypop

Bert: [Ahhhhhh!]

Ernie: La, la, la, la, lights in the sky.

Bert: [Oh! Oh! Ernie, I've got a great "L" word! This is a beauty. Oh, listen to this.]
La, la, la, linoleum!

Ernie: [Ah, no, Bert, uh..]
Listen to me
'Cause "L" is such a lovely letter
For words like "licorice" and "lace"
The letter "L" lights up your face
So why not la, la, la, la, laaaaaaaaaaaaah...

Bert: La, la, la, la, laaaaaaah

Ernie: ... With me?

(Bert laughs.)
