Theme Song Lyrics

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood
A beautiful day for a neighbor
Would you be mine
Could you be mine

It’s a neighborly day in this beautywood
A neighborly day for a beauty
Would you be mine
Could you be mine

I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you
I’ve always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you 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
