The Anniversary of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood
It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Celebrate the anniversary of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood with this video clip of his theme song – “Won’t you be my neighbor?”!
So let’s make the most of this beautiful day,
Since we’re together, we might as well say,
Would you be mine? Could you be mine?
Won’t you be my neighbor?
Won’t you please, won’t you please,
Please won’t you be my neighbor?
