Lyrics by Emily Perl Kingsley
First Episode 4063

"Everything's Coming Up Noses" is a Sesame Street song spoofing "Everything's Coming Up Roses."

Harvey Fierstein sings as he places noses (from a box) on Anything Muppets and Anything Monsters. Once his box becomes empty, a Pumpkin Muppet lends him a pair of Groucho glasses.

The song was originally written to be performed by Tyne Daly, who was starring in Gypsy on Broadway at the time. Jule Styne, composer for the musical, wasn't pleased with his work being parodied and Daly was given another song to perform ("Different" with Prairie Dawn). When Gypsy was revived in 2003, the song was brought up again and offered to Bernadette Peters, who declined at the request of her vocal coach. Harvey Fierstein was then brought in to perform the song.[1]
