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 ****in' 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
