"Wynken, Blynken and Nod" is a classic poem by Eugene Field that tells the story of three fishermen, and the adventure they have when fishing for herring in a wooden shoe on one mystical, enchanting night. Buffy Sainte-Marie set it to music for Sesame Street.

A different version, with music by Lucy Simon, was performed by the Doobie Brothers on the Sesame Street album In Harmony. When it was released as a single, it reached #76 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
