"Being Good Neighbors"

 words by Ruth Pelham

(c) 2003 Ruth Pelham Music


Sing this song to the tune of

"Hush Little Baby (The Mockingbird Song)"

There are neighbors living in my neighborhood
Who I like a lot, who are kind and good
We care for each other, that's what we do
They help me and I help them too
And then there are neighbors that I hardly know
I smile at them and I say hello
Once a year we get together in June
We clean up our neighborhood, we sing some tunes
We pick up the litter, plant flowers, and talk
We make our plans for the Neighborhood Walk
That happens every year in the month of September
It's what we do to raise money together
The money gets spent on things that are good
For all of the people in our neighborhood
My neighbors are caring, I think they're great
We all try to love and not to hate
Yes, being good neighbors is the thing to do
You for me and me for you.



 Instrumental Version





If someone in asked you what it's like living in a neighborhood where are people are good neighbors, this song could very well be the answer! Try making up a new song with a new first line, for example, "Being good neighbors is what we do" or "People are kind in my neighborhood." Notice that the last word of every two lines is a rhyme!
