Title/Author info from ASCAP #498091491. -- Wendy (talk) 18:11, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Are we sure about this? All the other known songs Maxine Fisher wrote for Sesame Street were in the 80s for Michael Sporn animations: Stones Don't Grow, Chickens Crossing, Pirates Plan Plan Plan, Crocodile Smiles Song, Oysters and Castles, Stranger Joins the Ball Game. From Sporn's blog, it sounds like he, rather than CTW, hired her to do the music for his animations. The concept of over, under, around, and through is taught many times on Sesame Street--could hers refer to a different one? Besides being 90s and not a Sporn animation, it doesn't even sound like her songs. --Kate 00:57, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
I'd have to agree with Kate on this. The vocals in the song sound distinctly like Paul Jacobs, and the only songs he sung outside of his were Chris Cerf's and/or Sarah Durkee's. I've found Around and Around ("'Round and around with you...") by Durkee and Jacobs from 1990 in the Copyright Catalog. Could this be it? -- Jon (talk) 05:46, March 22, 2011 (UTC)
I've found two documents on ASCAP (310315736, 312144971) that list the song as "Around and Around (Over Thru Under)" and "Around and Around Over Thru Under Song (w Kids)." Though it sounds more like a clunky document name than an actual song title (which can be adjusted here), overall I think we've found our match. -- Jon (talk) 16:49, April 20, 2011 (UTC)
