You'll Never Take the Texas Out of Me

sung by Tanya Tucker and Big Bird (Carroll Spinney)

Tanya Tucker: You'll never take the Texas out of me
I guess a homesick country girl is all I'll ever be
And though destiny directs us
You can take me out of Texas
But you'll never take the Texas out of me

I feel at home in Oklahoma
I'm at ease in Tennessee
But my roots are deep in Texas
Home is always in the heart of me

You'll never take the Texas out of me
I guess a homesick country girl is all I'll ever be
And though destiny directs us
You can take me out of Texas
But you'll never take the Texas out of me

Big Bird (spoken): You know, Tanya, I feel the same way about my home sweet home

(sung) You can't take Sesame Street out of me
And if I went to Texas I'd take Sesame with me
And though I like other places
I'd miss familiar faces
So you can't take Sesame Street out of me

TT and BB: Our home sweet homes are very different
But we love them just the same
And when we take our memories with us
Home is sweet by any other name

BB: You can't take Sesame Street out of me

TT: Never take the Texas out of me

BB: That funny homesick feeling is the same for you and me

Both: And if we were to trade places
It would take more than erasers
'Cause you'll never take the feeling out of me

TT: You'll never take the Texas

BB: Sesame Street!

TT: Out of me
