Sesame Street 3: Subway

As I said, Sesame Street in the early '70's was a surrogate for "The Muppet Show" and sometimes education took a backseat to entertainment. This song, for example, teaches nothing. Most of its lyrics are downright satirical. Looks like it broke the budget at the time too.

I would love to ride the subway with Bert; at least he would not bump up against my backside and try to pretend it was the "motion of the train."

It does crack me up that it is not a positive message about the subway; more like "this sucks, so let's all sing about how sucky it is" message!

And l love the fact that Kermit looks pissed the whole time. "Annoyed Kermit," unfortunately, left with Henson.
