The Lambaba!

Words and Music by Tony Geiss
1990 Sesame Street, Inc. (ASCAP)

sung by The Count (Jerry Nelson)


Whenever I go to sleep
In bed when the day is through
I love to count little sheep
Doing the dance they adore to do

With a beat of tiny feet
Baby lambs begin to prance
And then they all start to bleat
The name of their dance
Lambaba!
And I count them!

Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lamba ba ba

Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lambaba ba

Lambies come from here and there
Pretty soon the room is full
Curly hair is everywhere
It's wall-to-wall wool

Mary and her little lamb
With fleece that is as white as snow
Bo Peep even brings a ram
And we're ready to go
Lambaba!
And I count them!

Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lamba ba ba

Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lambaba, Lambaba
Lambaba, Lambaba ba
