El Condor Pasa, also known as "If I Could", was performed by Paul Simon when he appeared on Sesame Street. (

It was later sung with enthusiastic and different, somewhat unusual lyrics by Gonzo and the chickens in The Muppet Show episode 511. Paul Simon, watching from the wings, retaliates by inviting the chickens to a party in the middle of Gonzo's number.
