The Weekend Song

Written by Fred Rogers | © 1970, Fred M. Rogers


I'll be back, when the week is new
And I'll bring more ideas for you
And you'll have things you'll want to do
And I will, too.
I'll think of you when I'm not here
'Cause thinking of people makes them seem near.
The friends who know you love you cheerfully,
I do, too.


Notes

  • A variation of this song was used to close many episodes of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood:

    I'll be back, when the day is new
    And I'll have more ideas for you
    And you'll have things you'll want to talk about
    I will, too.

  • For the final episode of each weekly series, the lyrics were slightly adjusted:

    I'll be back, when the week is new
    And I'll have more ideas for you
    And you'll have things you'll want to talk about
    I will, too.

  • A variation of this song is used as the closing theme for Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood.
