  • Sittin' in your front yard, drinkin' lemonade
    Suburban life, a pretty wife, you think you've got it made
    But you don't know, what's in store, for you and your family
    I'm movin' in, right next door, won't you welcome me?
    It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
    And I hope I didn't ruin your day
    Won't you be my neighbor?

    I brought my life, my ugly wife, my dirty dog with fleas
    My kid's a punk, and I'm a drunk, this I'm sure you'll see
    Yeah you don't know, what it's like, to live in misery
    Welcome to, home sweet hell, dissatisfaction guaranteed
    It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
    And if I could I surely would
    Invite you in and say
    Won't you be my neighbor?
    Won't you be my neighbor?
    Won't you be my neighbor?
    Won't you be my neighbor?

    C'mon I don't think you'll find
    A place to live in peace of mind
    You're gonna live in misery
    When you're livin' next to me
    It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
    Won't you be my, won't you be my fuckin' neighbor?

    Well I drink, and I stink, I smoke, yeah I'm a joke
    I try all night and day to get a piece of the action, a-haa
    And you should know by now you're never gonna forget, a-aaa
    Now I know just what you're thinkin'
    It could be out 'n' you're drinkin'
    So don't you knock it until you try it
    It could be you in a little while
    I hope I didn't ruin your day
    It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
    And I dig your wife, she sure is good
    It's a beautiful day in the neighboorhood Writer/s: KLAUS EICHSTADT, WHITFIELD CRANE
