    The song is called "Just One Person." And the TV special in which the Muppets "found out" about Jim Henson's death was "The Muppets Celebrate Jim Henson."

    "Just One Person" was also performed at the Jim Henson's funeral, I believe.

    I would love to hear the version from the "Muppets remember Jim Henson" - anyone got an mp3??

    Also, wasn't Just One Person on one of the Muppet Records? I have a feeling that I have it somewhere...

    Anway, here are the words to it - might jog a few peoples memories...


    If just one person believes in you,
    Deep enough, and strong enough, believes in you...
    Hard enough, and long enough,
    It stands to reason, that someone else will think
    "If he can do it, I can do it."

    Making it: two whole people, who believe in you
    Deep enough, and strong enough,
    Believe in you.
    Hard enough and long enough
    There's bound to be some other person who
    Believes in making it a threesome,
    Making it three.....
    People you can say: believe in me.....

    And if three whole people,
    Why not -- four?
    And if four whole people,
    Why not--more, and
    more, and

    And when all those people,
    Believe in you,
    Deep enough, and strong enough,
    Believe in you...
    Hard enough, and long enough

    It stands to reason that you yourself will
    Start to see what everybody sees in

    And maybe even you,
    Can believe in you... too!

    Yes it was originally written for Snoopy:The Musical (the sequel to "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown!")

    That song always gave me goosebumps, but after seeing the special I always tear up when I hear it.
