"The People in Your Neighborhood"

And, for your enjoyment, here is that infamous Sesame Street song that we've been singing for the last two weeks, lyrics in order with the community helpers we learned:

"The People in Your Neighborhood"

Oh, who are the people in your neighborhood?
In your neighborhood?
In your neighborhood?
Say, who are the people in your neighborhood?
The people that you meet each day.

Oh, the postman always brings the mail,
Through rain or snow or sleet or hail;
He'll work and work the whole day through,
To get your letters safe to you.

'Cause a postman is a person in your neighborhood,
In your neighborhood,
He's in your neighborhood;
Yes, a postman is a person in your neighborhood,
He's a person that you meet each day.

Oh, a fireman is brave, it's said,
His engine is a shiny red;
If there's a fire anywhere about,
Well, he'll be sure to put it out.

'Cause a fireman is a person in your neighborhood,
In your neighborhood,
He's in your neighborhood;
Yes, a fireman is a person in your neighborhood,
He's a person that you meet each day.

A teacher works the whole day through,
To teach important things to you;
She'll teach you things you won't forget,
Like numbers and the alphabet.

'Cause a teacher is a person in your neighborhood,
In your neighborhood,
She's in your neighborhood;
Yes, a teacher is a person in your neighborhood,
She's a person that you meet each day.

The doctor makes you well real quick,
If by chance you're feeling sick;
He works and works the whole day long,
To help you feel well and strong.

'Cause a doctor is a person in your neighborhood,
In your neighborhood,
He's in your neighborhood;
Yes, a doctor is a person in your neighborhood,
He's a person that you meet each day.

A dentist cares for all your teeth,
The top ones and the ones beneath;
So, if you have an aching tooth,
He'll fix it quick, and that's the truth!

'Cause a dentist is a person in your neighborhood,
In your neighborhood,
He's in your neighborhood;
Yes, a dentist is a person in your neighborhood,
He's a person that you meet each day.

The bus driver drives fast or slow,
To take you where you want to go;
When you get in and pay your fare,
She will drive you anywhere.

'Cause a bus driver is a person in your neighborhood,
In your neighborhood,
She's in your neighborhood;
Yes, a bus driver is a person in your neighborhood,
She's a person that you meet each day.

The trash collector works each day,
He'll always take your trash away,
He drives the biggest truck you've seen,
To keep the city streets all clean.

'Cause a trash collector's a person in your neighborhood,
In your neighborhood,
He's in your neighborhood;
Yes, a trash collector's a person in your neighborhood,
He's a person that you meet each day.

Well, they're the people that you meet,
When you're walking down the street,
They're the people that you meet each day!
