"You Gotta Be Patient (To Be a Patient)" is a Sesame Street calypso song from the video, Sesame Street Home Video Visits the Hospital.

Sick in the hospital, Big Bird is desperate to leave and go home. Maria and Orderly Jim explain in song that if Big Bird is patient enough and does what the doctors tell him, pretty soon he will be able to return home. Later, three Anything Muppet doctors sing a more upbeat, calypso version of the song to him.

Luis later performed the song in a season 28 episode. Another version of the song, sung over a live-action film, was made for the home video, Elmo Visits the Doctor.
