There is a link in the article which leads to where you can listen to the songs...

I wonder what the words in English are? They're friendly, songs from Sesame Street in another language for grown-ups. I wonder, too, what they're saying, because I wonder what the actual messages are. Just curious if anyone knows. This seems like a good project to help people to learn.

See the power of the word and the powers of music manifest for the Good of All!

What an excellent illustration of the whole brainfull of wisdom I picked up from a book called 'The Secret Power of Music' by . Without even getting into lyrics, but with meticulous planet-wide historical research, he tells us point by point what effects music has had on us throughout time ~ emotionally, mentally, spiritually, physically and societally.

Those little songs may save more children than all the (God/dess bless them for their holy work, one and all) relief workers onsite...
