Music and Lyrics by Paul Williams and Ken Ascher

Introduced by Kermit the Frog in The Muppet Movie (1979), Karen’s and my version, recorded in 1980, is one of a number of outtakes from our Made In America album.  As with “Leave Yesterday Behind,” Karen’s vocal on this track is a “work lead”; the singers and orchestra were added in 1999.  Fans, knowing of the track’s existence, have been writing me for years, asking for its release.  I try to be accommodating.
