"I Don't Want to Live on the Moon" is a Sesame Street song sung by Ernie, who expresses his desire to visit the moon someday, but ultimately decides he doesn't want to live there. He also sings about wanting to travel under the sea and to a few other places, as long as he is able to return home to those he loves. This segment was also an opportunity to see Ernie in full-body puppet form.
Ernie later sang this song with Aaron Neville. (EKA: Episode 3357) Jim Henson's original vocal recording was mixed with Aaron Neville's recording, giving the impression that Jim Henson was still performing three years after he died.
The song was also released as a book, I Don't Want to Live on the Moon.
