In a supposed effort to introduce children to the genre, Conan visited the Frances Xavier Warde Elementary School in Chicago to enlist their help in writing a few songs about the woes of being seven. The hysterical results are full of stolen teddies, food aversions and irrational childhood fears. Oh, and some really cute, sassy kids playing the harmonica. You can watch the clip below.
