Jimmy Fallon, The Roots play Sesame Street


Jimmy Fallon and The Roots have had some cool jam session with classroom instruments, but few will make you smile as big as the one they recently did to honor the the 44th season of “Sesame Street.”

A big chunk of the Sesame Street crew is featured in the video making its way around the Internet.

There is Elmo on vocals, Grover with backing vocals, Cookie Monster on banana shaker, Abby Cadabby on toy guitar, Murray with backing vocals and Zoe on hand cymbals, Big Bird on vocals and Aloysius Snuffleupagus with backing vocals

The Count counts down the song.

Black Thought of The Roots, the house band on NBC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” offered adorable raps about the crew.

The lyrics are below.

OK, you heard about, through word of mouth. Big Bird is out, he’s in the house.

He’s turnin’ up, with Snuffleup. They’re really gettin’ their hustle up. They stick together like Velcro. There Grover go, there’s Elmo and Cookie Monster there, look he likes to take selfies with his cell phone.

They got a homegirl named Abby. Her last name is Cadabby. I showed her my report card. She said, [Abby: Not too shabby.]

They got all types of cool kids there. It’s lots of fun if you live there.

One thing I keep forgettin’ about Sesame Street. How do you get there?”
