Hold My Hand

This song is by Sesame Street and appears on the album Songs From the Street: 35 Years of Music (2003).

Band: (spoken) Hi, we're Hootie and the Blowfish. Did you ever have this problem?
You want to cross the street, but you can't 'cause you're not old enough to cross by yourself yet?
We've all been there, right?

All: Yeah, you betcha.

Band: Well, we're got a song to tell you what to do about it.

Zoe: Good.

Elizabeth: Really? Oh, sing it fellas.

Zoe: Great, great.

sung:

When you're on a corner, and you want to cross the street
There's one thing to remember, before you move your feet
You need a little help from a grownup friend
We'll cross the street together
Just take me by the hand, cause
I am here for you
And I will cross with you

Yesterday, I saw Elmo standing there
He was all alone, he couldn't cross
He wasn't going anywhere
I said, "Come on,
Let me see you smile
We'll take a walk together
Cross the road a while," 'cause

I am here for you
I am here for you
And I will cross with you
You know I'm gonna cross with you

Hold my hand
When you cross the street
Hold my hand
Cross at the corner and look both ways
Hold my hand
You can count on me, 'cause
I'm gonna help you, the best that
The best that I can

Just standing on the corner can be such a waste of time
But we can fix this little problem
Just put your hand in mine
And we can cross
And then you'll say aloud
"I crossed the street the right way
And now I'm very proud." 'cause

I am here for you
I am here for you
And I will cross with you
You know I'm going to cross with you

Hold my hand
When you cross the street
Hold my hand
Cross at the corner and look both ways
Hold my hand
You can always count on me, 'cause
I'm gonna help you, the best that
The best that I can ... (fade)
