There's a Bird on Me!
Written by Joe Raposo
Date 1972
Publisher Jonico Music
EKA Episode 0536

"There's a Bird on Me" is a Sesame Street song accompanying live-action footage of small birds resting on top of various other animals. The lyrics offer a comic complaint about the often symbiotic relationship between birds and mammals in the wild, including rhinoceroses and giraffes. Vocals were performed by the composer, Joe Raposo.

In Episode 3742, Telly and Big Bird watch the film, making Telly worry Big Bird will try to sit on his head, like the birds seen in the song.

The segment was remade in Season 33 with Jerry Nelson on vocals for an origami-styled animation of a hippo with several birds on him.
