Sesame Street- Bert's Blanket

Sheep1: Your blanket begins in a far away place,

Where skies are blue and there's lots of space.

The nights are cold and we sleep outside.

To keep warm and toasty we grow hair on our hide.

But when spring comes around,

The weather is warm.

A thick, woolly coat loses all of its charm.

We're itchy and hot 'til a rancher arrives.

To give us all a haircut.

And brighten up our lives.

He grabs a big bag and he gathers the wool.

And he stuffs and he crams til the bags are full.

He throws them on the truck 'til it's piled up high.

Then he climbs into the driver's seat and says "goodbye"

All Sheep: That's the story of Bert's blanket. That's the story of Bert's blanket. That's the story of Bert's blanket

(break)

Bert: It goes to a mill before it lands in bed.

'Cause it's gotta be twirled into long, strong thread.

Then it's gotta get dyed to a nice dull grey.

Then woven into cloth before it's sent on its way.

(break)

Bert: A parrot with clutches (?) and it goes to a store.

Where it's put on a shelf. It's not long before

A warm, grey blanket catches someone's eye.

He says "Hey! That's the blanket I've been longing to buy!"

(break)

Bert: So when you climb in bed before you go to sleep.

As you snuggle in the covers, please think of these sheep.

Sheep1: We'll be back on the range and doing our best.

To keep these blankets coming from original West (?)

All Sheep: That's the story of Bert's blanket.

Bert: That's the story of my blanket.

All Sheep: That's the story of my blanket.

Bert: That's the story of my blanket.

All Sheep: That's the story of Bert's blanket, that's the story of Bert's blanket.

Ewe With Bow: That's the story of Bert's blanket. That's the story of Bert's blanket. That's the story of Bert's blanket.

Ram: That's the story of---

Trivia Edit

  • "Warm" and "charm", despite having the same endings in the spelling, do not actually rhyme. "Warm" rhymes with "form" and "charm" rhymes with "arm".
