Cartoon Tuesday: Sesame Street and Bus Stops

Before I sign out for the holidays, I wanted to give you some homework to help me out.  One thing that Sammy responds to when we're trying to get him to sleep is singing.  Being a good Streetsblogger, I'm trying to give him as many songs about transit or biking as possible.  I haven't found a song yet that celebrates dense urban development.

So here's the assignment, in the comments section leave some of the songs I should be singing, or suggestions on a mainstream song that with a small change could be both baby and clean transportation appropriate.  For example, the above Sesame Street song about bus stops is great; but so would be a small suggestion that I change the words to a popular Phish song to "the tires are the things on your bike that make contact with the road."
