Music and Lyrics by Joe Raposo

In early 1973, Karen and I guested on an ABC television special, Robert Young With The Young.  One of the songs, featuring the cast, was ‘Sing,” originally written for Sesame Street.  Karen and I thought the song could be a hit (most of our associates thought we were nuts) and selected it as the debut single from our Now & Then album. It peaked at #3 and became our seventh gold single.
