Sesame Street: Norah Jones Sings Don’t Know Y

September 12, 2019


ELMO: Oh, hi, Norah! NORAH JONES: Hi, Elmo. ELMO: Whoa. What’s the matter, Norah? NORAH JONES: Well, I was
supposed to meet my friend today, the letter of the day? ELMO: Oh. NORAH JONES: Y never
showed up. ELMO: What? Norah’s friend is the
letter of the day? NORAH JONES: Yes. The letter Y. ELMO: Oh. [MUSIC PLAYING] NORAH JONES: (SINGING) I waited
till I saw the sun. I don’t know why
Y didn’t come. I thought we’d meet
and have some fun. I don’t know why
Y didn’t come. ELMO: Oh, poor Norah. NORAH JONES: (SINGING) I don’t
know why Y didn’t come. We had great times
I won’t forget. ELMO: That’s good. NORAH JONES: (SINGING)
Spelling words like yarn and yet. But now that Y has gone away,
how I yearn for yesterday. I don’t know what to do. ELMO: Oh, that’s not right. Do you see what Elmo sees? NORAH JONES: (SINGING)
I can’t even spell– I can’t even spell you. Not without him. ELMO: Norah, Norah! The letter Y! NORAH JONES: Oh, yeah. The letter Y. We used to spell
great words together. ELMO: But, but, but– NORAH JONES: We had
a lot of fun. We spelled yogurt. ELMO: Yeah, but– NORAH JONES: Yodel. ELMO: That’s good, but– NORAH JONES: Yarn. ELMO: But– but I– NORAH JONES: Now I can’t
spell anything. I miss him. ELMO: Oh, boy. NORAH JONES: (SINGING) Something
had to make him run. I don’t know why
Y didn’t come. And now I’m feeling
sad and glum. I don’t know why
Y didn’t come. I don’t know why Y
I didn’t come. I don’t know why– ELMO: But, but– NORAH JONES: (SINGING)
Y didn’t come. ELMO: B-but, b-but Norah! Norah, Norah, hello? The Y did come. NORAH JONES: He did? ELMO: Yes! Y: Yoo-hoo! NORAH JONES: Y, you’re here. Y: Yep. Oh, I’m sorry I’m late. Can you forgive me? NORAH JONES: Yes. Y: Yippee! ELMO: Yay! NORAH JONES: Yay! You think we can all
play together now? Y: Y not? [LAUGHTER] Y: Hey, you want to yodel? NORAH JONES: Sure. ELMO: Yeah, let’s yodel! [ALL YODELING] NORAH JONES: I can’t
yodel, though. Y: I can. Y AND ELMO: [YODELING]

    I absolutely adore how Norah would sing a couple statements about Y and immediately after, Elmo would attempt to validate all of Norah's feelings ❤ So cute. Elmo would make a great therapist

    That's adorable! 😀 That's how I will show my own mum the problem why "Y" is like that. (We are Germans, in Bavaria, by the way.)

  • Reply bossfan49 December 29, 2018 at 7:01 am

    I realize this in an unpopular opinion, but I never liked Elmo. Way too cutesy…annoying voice. Grover would've KILLED IT in this scene. He's much more relatable and believable. Elmo is too…saccharin. Norah, on the other hand, is an angel.
