Sesame Street – Clink Clank lyrics

Bert: [Ernie! Ernie! I've discovered something fantastic! Listen... (Clink)

Ernie: That's fantastic, Bert!

Bert: Yeah, yeah! That's me hitting this tin can with a spoon. And listen, this is.. This is me hitting this pan with a spoon... (Clank) *pleasant sigh*

Ernie: Well, that's very interesting, Bert..

Bert: Yeah. Now, I shake the tin can.. (Rattle) .. You see, it's got marbles inside!

Ernie: Uh-huh, yeah, that's nice..

Bert: Yeah, yeah, and then I blow this whistle! (Tweet) Oh, Ernie! It's so wild! So wonderful!

Ernie: Gee, that doesn't seem so wonderful to me, Bert.

Bert: Well, maybe not but listen to what happens when I put them all together, Ernie..

(Clink, clank, rattle, tweet)

Bert: *pleasant sigh*

Ernie: Say, that sounds pretty nice, Bert!

Bert: nice? Ernie, it's breathtaking! Hey -- now everyone at home, go get a can, or a pan, or a whistle, or -- or whatever you can find, and you can join in too.

Ernie: Join in? Join in on what, Bert?

Bert: Well, you'll see Ernie, and I'll tell you what happened too. See --]

Bert: See, I was sitting around
Feeling so blue,
Trying to think what to
Think to do
Then--(Clink, clank, rattle, tweet)--
I suddenly heard something new.

I was sitting around
Trying to sleep
Practicing counting by
Counting sheep
When--(Clink, clank, rattle, tweet)--
I knew I had found something new.

It was just the water pipe when the faucet got turned on,
But it lightened up my life like a nightingale's sweet song!

And now I'm happy with my can and my pan
My whistle or two
'Cause now I know
What I just gotta do;
I go (Clink, clank, rattle, tweet)
And the sky is all sunny and blue,
And (Clink, clank, rattle, tweet)
I bet it'll do it for you!

Ernie: [Gee, that's nice, Bert! Hey--can I join in?

Bert: Ernie, everybody can join in! Kids at home too. Ready? Here it comes...

(Clink, clank, rattle, honk!)

Bert: aaaahhh! Ernie, you ruined it!

Ernie: Well, I couldn't find a whistle, Bert!

Bert: Well, this time you rattle and I'll tweet.

Ernie: Okay, Bert! (Honk!)

Bert: ernie!

Ernie: I just had to put it down, Bert.

Bert: Well, control yourself, huh?

Ernie: Here we go..

(Clink, clank, rattle, tweet)

Ernie: There, I did it!]

Bert: *pleasant sigh*

It was just the water pipe when the faucet got turned on,
But it lightened up my life like a nightingale's sweet song

And now I'm happy with my can and my pan
(Honk!) My whistle or two (Ernie!) (Sorry..)
Now I know what I just got to do;
I go (Clink, clank, rattle tweet)
And the sky is all sunny and blue,
And (Clink, clank, rattle, tweet)
I bet it'll do it for you!
Once more! -- (Clink, clank, rattle, tweet)
And again! -- (Clink, clank, rattle, tweet)
One last time! -- (Clink, clank, rattle, tweet)
I bet it'll do it for you! (Tweet!)

Bert: [It did it for me, I'll tell ya.]

Ernie: (Honk!)
