Where did sheep get tap shoes?

I think Bert's protesting dialogue in the background of Ernie's "Dance Myself to Sleep" is one of the funniest things ever.



"Dance Myself to Sleep"

Sometimes I have trouble falling asleep,
But it’s not so bad


Bert: Ernie, I'm trying to sleep.

I don’t worry, and I don’t weep


(Bert moans)

In fact…I’m glad!

Because I
Get up off my pillow
And I flip on the light


Bert: Ernie!</b>

I get down and get hip
In the still of the night


Bert: Turn the light off, Ernie!

I stretch and I yawn
And then I breathe real deep;


(Bert moans)

And dance myself to sleep.


Bert: Don't dance, PLEASE don't dance!

I hoof around my beddy,
Just ‘a tappin’ my toes


Bert: You're dancing.

Before I know what’s happened
I’m a ready to go.


(Bert moans)

Got some partners I can count on
Called the Boogie-Woogie Sheep


Bert: The WHAT?


I dance myself to sleep.
I gently rock-a-by myself across the floor


Bert: What are those sheep doing?

I turn and then I toss
Then I start to snore


Bert: Ernie!

My trusty little bugle
Helps me spread the news


Bert: Oh, NOT the bugle.


That I’m a’tappin’ to taps
And a’rarin’ to snooze.

*BUGLE MUSIC*


Bert: Oh...you're playing the bugle.

>bugle interlude<


Bert: What are these sheep doing?
Bert: Ernie, these sheep...they're tap dancing...
Bert: Ernie, PLEASE take these sheep out and let me sleep!
Bert: >moan<
Bert: Where did sheep get tap shoes?
Bert: GetawayGetawayGetawayGetawayGetawayGetaway.
Bert: ERNIE, will you PLEASE tell the sheep to put my bed down?!
Bert: Stop, getawaygetawaygetaway.
Bert: Thank you. WAIT, don't pick me up!

Well I’m gettin’ kind of drowsy
So the moment has come


Bert: YOU'RE drowsy?!


To grab my rubber ducky
While the sheep take my chum.


Bert: TAKE your CHUM?!


Time to shuffle off to dreamland,
Got a date to keep


Bert: Where're you taking me?


We’ll dance ourselves to sleep, oh yeah


Bert: Wait, what's going on?


We’ll dance ourselves to sleep, we’re in our jammies


Bert: What are they doing?


We’ll dance ourselves to sleep, and thank you lambies


Bert: They're taking me OUTSIDE!


We’ll dance ourselves to sleep


Bert: Errrnieeeeeeeeeee!
>Ernie laugh<

Aaaaaaaaaand...SCENE.
