"The Sneeze Song" was sung by Kathleen the Cow with a Pig, a Sheep, and Fred the Wonder Horse in Season 21 of Sesame Street.
This song was later remade with Ruthie and a trio of Anything Muppets (performed by Jerry Nelson, David Rudman and Kevin Clash). (EKA: Episode 3845)
Cow: We breathe in fresh air, but when dust's everywhere we, achoo, achoo, achoo!
Sniff the flowers and trees, but then it makes us sneeze. Just achoo, achoo, achoo!
Imagine how easy if life were not sneezy. Each nose would be thrilled though and through.
But what can you do with a cold or a flu. Just achoo, achoo, achoo.
Horse, pig, and sheep: We sniff a red rose. But it tickles our nose and...
Pig, sheep, and horse: Smell each bud in the lane. But get cold in the rain and...
Cow: Just breathing and sniffing with no handkerchiefing would thrill any nose through and through. But what can you do with a cold or a flu just achoo, achoo, achoo, achoo, achoo, achoo, achoo, achoo, (deep breath in) (melodiously) Achoo!
Achoo, achoo, achoo, achoo!

- Flowers can make one sneeze if the individual has allergies to them, or if the pollen gets into their noses.
