Sittin in your front yard, drinkin lemonade
Suburban life, a pretty wife, you think youve got it made
But you don't know, what's in store, for you and your family
Im movin in, right next door, wont you welcome me?
Its a beautiful day in the neighborhood
And I hope I didn't ruin your day
Wont you be my neighbor?

I brought my life, my ugly wife, my dirty dog with fleas
My kids a punk, and Im a drunk, this Im sure you'll see
Yeah you don't know, what it's like, to live in misery
Welcome to, home sweet hell, dissatisfaction guaranteed
Its a beautiful day in the neighborhood
And if I could I surely would
Invite you in and say
Wont you be my neighbor?
Wont you be my neighbor?
Wont you be my neighbor?
Wont you be my neighbor?

Cmon I don't think you'll find
A place to live in peace of mind
Youre gonna live in misery
When you're livin next to me
Its a beautiful day in the neighborhood...aaaah
Wont you be my, wont you be my funky(fuckin) neighbor?

Well I drink, and I stink, I smoke, yeah Im a joke
I try all night and day to get a piece of the action, a-haa
And you should know by now you're never gonna forget, a-aaa
Now I know just what you're thinkin
It could be out n you're drinkin
So don't you knock it until you try it
It could be you in a little while
I hope I didn't ruin your day

Cool ending bit
Its a beautiful day in the neighborhood
And I dig your wife, she sure is good
Its a beautiful day in the neighboorhood... ha, ha, ha
