I followed you home
Opened the door
Pulled off my coat and my shoes
Won't you tell me that I'm special
Got the neighborhood of Make-Believe blues
It's a magic kind of feeling
just knowing that you are a friend
feed the fish and greet the mailman
and hear that train whistle coming round the bend.
Put on those sneakers and a sweater,
Know that I'm safe here at home
Wont you let me be your neighbor
got the neighborhood of magic blues!
Well it all seems so appealing
in this country where Friday is King.
And I'm feeling kind of special
It's a neighborhood of Make-Believe thing.
You said your goodbyes,
Quite unafraid, said you would always be here
"Won't you walk in my footsteps,"
It's a neighborhood of Make-Believe thing!
