The Redding Brothers – Mister Rogers (Neighborhood) lyrics

Girl I'm just a lonely old man
Sitting with my favorite loafers on
Living in a perfect neighborhood
Where everything's right, nothing goes wrong

I just don't want to be lonely anymore
And crawl inside my head again
But if it's a bad day no one will see me
Slipping off to make-believe land

[It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
Would you be, could you be
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
Would you be, could you be my neighbor...
Could you be my neighbor]

If no one else notices me today
My imaginary friends, they'll still care
But I want to reach out and touch someone
Just to know they're really there


I'll put my favorite sweater on
And sit here by the telephone all day
But if it's a bad day again
I'll take this trolley to make-believe land
