"Hands" is a Sesame Street song sung by the Count about the many things that hands can do. The song was originally performed by the Count in his castle.In the early-90's, the segment was re-filmed and set outside of his castle. This version includes film clips (such as hands clapping together, a hand picking a red flower, and a girl tying her shoe) from several other songs and sketches. Gordon, Bert, The Two-Headed Monster and Big Bird appear in some of the clips. (EKA: Episode 3124)
A mouth can talk. A mouth can chew.
Not many things a mouth can do.
But hands, just mention hands and my heart sings.
For hands can do so many, many things.
Your hands can brush your teeth or comb your hair.
Throw a ball into the air.
Wave hello or wave goodbye.
Even make a pizza pie.
Use a fork. Use a spoon.
Hold a string on a balloon.
Paint a picture. Tie a shoe.
So many things your hands can do.
A nose can breathe. A nose can smell.
Not many things a nose does well.
But hands can do so many things for you.
I've mentioned some now let me add a few.
Your hands can turn the pages of a book.
Pick the phone up off its hook.
Rub your nose. Scratch your head.
Flip a coin or make your bed.
Do your buttons. Write your name.
Pat your dog or play a game.
Pick a flower. Yes, it's true, so many many things your hands can do!
