I am posting THIS because I found it on YouTube not that long ago and it made me go, "AAHHH! MEMORIES!" This video has a little girl performing a puppet show to it on her bed, and there was a movie version of this story as well that I think I saw once, but I knew it because we had a cassette tape of it when I was very young. And even now the family will occasionally sing it.
So here it is: "Patience" from The Music Machine.
