DUSTY, SLIMEY’s father, sings the song as he flies back to SESAME STREET. Since his wife, EARTHA, is about to give birth, he muses about what the new child will be like. He imagines having a talented son named Jim or an equally talented brave daughter named Beatrice (whom he calls "Bea" for short).
The song spoofs "Soliloquy" from the musical Carousel. It also features a reference to "You’ll NEVER Walk Alone" a song from the same musical. DUSTY’s vocals are provided by John Raitt, who originated the role of Billy Bigelow in the Broadway musical.
