Sesame Street: Janelle Monae – Power of Yet


BERT: Wah, wah, wah–
oh, how does it go? COOKIE MONSTER: Ah. This no look right. ZOE: Wah! ZOE AND ABBY: Oh,
we’ll never get this. TWO HEADED MONSTER: Woah! Oh, you , missed a drum. No! ELMO: There. 2 plus 2– oh, boy. Elmo will never get it right. JANELLE MONAE: (SINGING)
You tried to add, but the numbers came out wrong. You tried to sing, but you
didn’t know the whole song. You tried to cook, but the
food it didn’t taste right. You tried to dunk, but you
didn’t get enough height. You didn’t do it right now, but
keep trying– you’ll learn how. You just didn’t get it yet,
but you’ll get it soon I bet. That’s the power of yet. ALL: (SINGING) Yet yet, yet. JANELLE MONAE: (SINGING)
That’s the power of yet. ALL: (SINGING) Yet
yet, yet, yet, yet. JANELLE MONAE:
(SINGING) That is what you get with the power of yet. Come on. You tried to write, but you
couldn’t make the letter “R.” You tried to jump, but you
didn’t make it very far. You tried to drum, but you
couldn’t find a downbeat. You tried to dance, but you
tripped on your own feet. Just breathe–
don’t lose control. Keep trying and then
you’ll reach your goal. You just didn’t get it yet,
but you’ll make it soon I bet. That’s the power of yet. ALL: (SINGING) Yet, yet, yet. JANELLE MONAE: (SINGING)
That’s the power of yet. ALL: (SINGING) Yet,
yet, yet, yet, yet. JANELLE MONAE: (SINGING) Ready,
get set with the power of yet. Break it down now. There’s no mountain
you can’t climb. It just takes a little time. Because you got what it takes–
just learn from your mistakes. Try and try again, and one
day you’ll step up and then– You try to add and you
get the right answer. You sing a song, and
you’ll be a great dancer. You dunk the ball and you
make the right letter. Everything you do, you
do, you do it better. This is what you get,
because this is what you get, because this is what you
get with the power of yet. ALL: (SINGING) Yet, yet, yet. JANELLE MONAE: (SINGING)
That’s the power of yet. ALL: (SINGING)Yet,
yet, yet, yet, yet. JANELLE MONAE: (SINGING)
And that is what you get, and that is what
you get, and that is what you get with
the power of yet. YOUNG MUPPET:
(SINGING) My skin, it is a dark, dark brown–
it’s like a chestnut horse. Horses are so beautiful– you
know that’s true of course! So brown’s beautiful,
and I’m beautiful–
