"Conga Counting Song'" is a filmed song sequence, seen on Sesame Street. Three kids run around town counting uno - dos - tres. Three more kids join them, making it seis. Finally, three kids join them with one smaller kid, for a total of diez kids.

The song was performed twice during season 32. In Episode 3919, Maria's mother sang the song with Big Bird and the Birdketeers. It was later performed by Maria and the cast in Episode 3952, where they counted monsters (Elmo, Telly, Lulu, Grover, Zoe, Herry, Rosita, Merry Monster and two AM Monsters) instead of kids.

Rosita repeatedly sings the chorus of the song in a "Spanish Word of the Day" segment for season 36.
