Lyrics

Joe: Hey, Mailbox. Mailbox. Why don't we tell everybody about our friends and neighbors?

Mailbox: That's a great idea, Joe. But how do we do that?

Joe: Uh, well, we can sing the "People in Your Neighborhood" song.

Mailbox: Sing? Sing? I don't know. I don't know about singing.

Joe: (spoken) Oh, it'll be great. Hit it, Maestro. Me and you, Joe. Come on, sing with me.
(singing) Oh, who are the people in your neighborhood?
(spoken) Come on, Mailbox.


Mailbox: In your neighborhood.

Joe: Good.

Joe and Mailbox: In your neighborhood.
Say, who are the people
in your neighborhood?
The people that you meet each day.


Mailbox: Hey, this is good. Okay, okay. Well, who are the people in our neighborhood?

Joe: Well, you'll see. Come on out, person in our neighborhood.

Maggie: (spoken) Here I am, here I am. Hiya, Joe. Hello there.
(singing) Oh, a letter carrier brings the mail
through rain or snow or sleet or hail.
I'll work and work the whole day through
to get your letter safe to you.
Ha.


Joe and Mailbox: 'Cause a letter carrier's a person in your neighborhood.

Maggie: You know it.

Joe and Mailbox: In your neighborhood.

Maggie: Oh, yeah.

Joe and Mailbox: In your neighborhood.
Oh, the letter carrier's a person in your neighborhood,
a person that you meet each day.


Maggie: That was fun. Listen, I've got this letter here for Mary. Are you Mary?

Mailbox: Uh, am I Mary?

Maggie: Yeah.

Mailbox: No, no. I'm not Mary.

Maggie: Well, I've got to find this Mary. Where are you, Mary? Need an address on this letter, Mary.

Mailbox: Hm, well, this is great. OK, let's meet another person in our neighborhood.

Joe: OK. Person in the neighborhood number two, come on out!

Oswald: (spoken) Cable guy!
(singing) Oh, a cable guy hooks up your TV
to play your favorite show or movie.
If you are seeing nothing but fuzz,
he'll come by and fix it 'cause...


Joe and Mailbox: A cable guy's a person in your neighborhood.

Oswald: Oh, yeah.

Joe and Mailbox: In your neighborhood.

Oswald: Yes, it is.

Joe and Mailbox: In your neighborhood.
Oh, the letter carrier's a person in your neighborhood.

Oswald: That's me.

Joe and Mailbox: In your neighborhood.

Maggie: Oh, yeah.

Joe and Mailbox: A person that you meet each day.

Joe: Thanks, Cable Guy.

Oswald: No problem, no problem.

Mailbox: Hey, do you think you could do me a favor? I'm having some trouble with my cable. You think you could help me out?

Oswald: Don't worry, Mailbox, bubbeleh. I'll juice you up.

Mailbox: All right. This is so much fun.

Joe: Yeah.

Mailbox: Hey, you know what?

Joe: What?

Mailbox: I want to be a person in our neighborhood.

Joe: Well, sure. We can sing about you.
(singing) Oh, Mailbox is a person in our neighborhood,
yeah, in our neighborhood...


Mailbox: Hang on a second, Joe. I've got a better idea. I've got a great idea. I'm going to put on a costume. I'll be right back. Hang on a second.

Joe: Costume?

Mailbox: Okay, I'm ready. Let's sing.

Joe: But, but, but, Mailbox, what are you dressed as?

Mailbox: I'm a person in the neighborhood. I'm a cheese.

Joe: A cheese?

Mailbox: (spoken) Yeah.
(singing) A cheese is a really great fella.
You can call me Swiss, Brie, or Mozzarella.
I'm a really, really tasty dish.
Try melting me on tuna fish.


Joe: Mailbox, this is silly.

Mailbox: 'Cause a cheese is a person in your neighborhood.

Joe: Cheese isn't a person.

Mailbox: In your neighborhood.

Joe: Is it?

Mailbox: In your neighborhood.

Joe: Oh, why not?

Joe and Mailbox: Oh, a cheese is a person in your neighborhood.
A person that you meet

when you're walking down the street.
A person that you meet each day.


Mailbox: That was really great. I think I make a very, very good cheese.

Joe: Very convincing.

Maggie: Hey, hey, hey, hey. You guys know any place to eat around here?

Oswald: Yeah, it's our lunch break, and we're starving.

Joe: Sorry, I don't.

Maggie: Oh, whoa, wait a minute. There's a giant cheese right here in the neighborhood. Let's eat that.

Mailbox: What?! No, no, no, no, wait. Joe, Joe, I've got to go. I'm not really a cheese.

Oswald: Hey, stand still, Cheese, I'm starving.

Joe: Let that be a lesson to all of us. Never dress like a cheese at lunchtime.

Mailbox: Joe, help me!

Maggie: Follow that fromage!

Oswald: Come on, Cheese! I want to spread you on toast!
