(then she sings the first part of the song)

(Then, like the ending animation in Richard Scarry's Best ABC Video Ever, we fade to and pan above the entire Busytown seen on birds-eye view and an airplane pulling the "The End" banner.)

  • Narrator: The end.

(The screen fades to black, ending the video with the credits, then the Jumbo Pictures and Random House Home Video logos and finally the copyright.)
