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 (a blue muppet, I believe, walks onstage) [Bob: Oh, hi there, little fella.] [Anything Muppet #1: Hello.] [Bob: Hey, listen, know who you could be if I gave you this little hat and this bag to go over your shoulder?] [Anything Muppet #1: I could be a laundry man.] [Bob: No, not a laundry man.] [Anything Muppet #1: How about Santa Claus?] [Bob: No no no, not Santa Claus.] [Anything Muppet #1: What's wrong with Santa Claus?] [Bob: There's nothing wrong with Santa Claus, but...] [Anything Muppet #1: Don't you like Christmas?] [Bob: Oh, I love Christmas. But you could be the postman.] [Anything Muppet #1: A postman, hmmmm ...] Oh, the postman always brings the mail Through rain or snow or sleet or hail I'll work and work the whole day through To get your letters safe to you Bob and Anything Muppet #1: 'Cause a postman is a person in your neighborhood In your neighborhood He's in your neighborhood A postman is a person in your neighborhood A person that you meet each day [Anything Muppet #1: I'll see you around.] [Bob: Okay.] (AM#1 leaves, bumped into AM#2 as he enters) [Anything Muppet #2: Hey, watch it. Where ya goin'? To a fire?] [Bob: Hey, speaking of a fire.] [Anything Muppet #2: Fire! What fire? Help! Help!] [Bob: No, there's no fire at all. But do you know who you could be if I gave you this little shiny red hat?] [Anything Muppet #2: Yeah, Santa Claus.] [Bob: No, not Santa Claus.] [Anything Muppet #2: Little Red Riding Hood?] [Bob: No, no, no, not Red Riding Hood, you could be a fireman.] [Anything Muppet #2: A fireman? Holy smoke!] Oh, a fireman is brave it's said His engine is a shiny red If there's a fire anywhere about Well, I'll be sure to put it out Bob and Anything Muppet #2: 'Cause a fireman is a person in your neighborhood In your neighborhood He's in your neighborhood Anything Muppet #1: And a postman is a person in your neighborhood All: Well, they're the people that you meet When you're walking down the street They're the people that you meet each day (additional verses from the book "People In My Neighborhood" Volume 7 of "On My Way With Sesame Street") (pic of Cookie Monster dressed in a chef hat and apron behind the counter of a bakery, muching cookies, natch) The baker is the one who makes Your bread and rolls and pies and cakes If you want something sweet to eat, go see The baker in the bakery (pic of Guy Smiley-like teacher in front of class holding a globe) A teacher works the whole day through To teach important things to you He'll teach you things you won't forget Like numbers and the alphabet (pic of Herry monster in red-white striped pants just like a barber's pole cutting the hair of Guy Smiley-like muppet) A barber has a great big chair You sit in it, he cuts your hair He'll snip and clip and never rest Until your haircut looks its best (pic of Prairie Dawn-like muppet driving a bus) 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 (pic of Telly wearing a dentist's uniform) 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 (pic of female muppet in a doctor's uniform) The doctor makes you well real quick If by chance you're feeling sick She works and works the whole day long To help you feel well and strong (pic of blue adult male muppet in grocer's outfit) The grocer sells the things you eat Like bread and eggs, cheese and meat No matter what you're looking for You'll find it at the grocery store (pic of Grover working on a shoe with a hammer) The shoemaker is always there To take care of the shoes you wear With his hammer, nails, and glue He'll fix your shoes as good as new (pic of the back of Rodeo Rosie handing over a fringed vest to the drycleaner, a green adult male muppet) The cleaner is the one who knows How to clean and press your clothes He'll take a jacket, suit, or vest And clean it so you'll look your best (pic of Oscar The Grouch, naturally, driving a garbage truck) 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
