THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

I Like To Be Told

Written by Fred Rogers | © 1968, Fred M. Rogers


I like to be told
When you're going away,
When you're going to come back,
And how long you'll stay,
How long you will stay,
I like to be told.

I like to be told
If it's going to hurt,
If it's going to be hard,
If it's not going to hurt.
I like to be told.
I like to be told.

It helps me to get ready for all those things,
All those things that are new.
I trust you more and more
Each time that I'm
Finding those things to be true.

I like to be told
'Cause I'm trying to grow,
'Cause I'm trying to learn
And I'm trying to know.
I like to be told.
I like to be told.


Notes

  • An instrumental version of this song was used as the opening music on the 1976 Let's Talk About It videos.
