The Lyrics

This is a parody about Lefty the Salesman. Lefty was from Sesame Street.
[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 1]
Yeah, yeah.
This guy named Ernie is a Muppet you would,
See, he's cutting wood.
Gotta write on a paper, harmonica playing,
Playing might get them good.
That guy, he's Ernie's man in the game,
I hear, he's doing okay.
Got a neat little job, selling something that he robbed.
Giving him some air today.

[Chorus:]
He's the one they call Lefty Salesman.
He's the one to sell something for us.
He's the one they call Lefty Salesman.

[Verse 2:]
Bert, on the shore, he always ignores,
The bargain of the year.
Ernie got a hive, he just can't hide,
But there's bees that he can hear.
Got a little carried away, does his business all day,
But at night, he's always there,
With an Golden AN,
Giving it to Dan,
And giving you a pear.

[Chorus:]
He's the one they call Lefty Salesman,
He's the one to sell something for us.
He's the one they call Lefty Salesman.
He's gonna deal with Lefty's boss.

[Hook]
I've got one thing you'll understand, (Lefty Salesman)
Is that what you do when you shake somebody's hand? (Lefty Salesman)
You take the Golden AN in the Tan Van, (Lefty Salesman)
I think you're getting better, Lefty Salesman...

[Verse 3:]
He'll sell something like the red octagon,
The red octagon says STOP.
And he'll even sell a picture,
With a picture of elephants,
He's also not a cop.
He'll sell you the letter or a number or too,
If he can only tell you,
If it's a letter that's V or another letter, U,
He'll have to send it to you.

[Chorus]
He's the one they call Lefty Salesman.
He's the one to sell something to us.
He's the one they call Lefty Salesman.
He's gonna deal with Lefty's boss.

[Hook]
Some say he's just an evil man, (Lefty Salesman)
He steals all the cash and shakes their hand, (Lefty Salesman)
And then when he stole the Golden AN, (Lefty Salesman)
Stan left him to the can, Lefty Salesman.

[SPOKEN]
Listen up, bud,
My name is Lefty Salesman...

[Hook]
I've got one thing you'll understand, (Lefty Salesman)
Is that what you do when you shake somebody's hand? (Lefty Salesman)
You take the Golden AN in the Tan Van, (Lefty Salesman)
I think you're getting better, Lefty Salesman...

[Outro]
Oh yeah,
Oh yeah,
Lefty Salesman, (Lefty Salesman)
Lefty Salesman, (Lefty Salesman)
Lefty Salesman...
Lefty Salesman was performed by Frank Oz on Sesame Street.
