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
