Won't You Be My Neighbor? (Song)

Written by Fred Rogers | © 1967, Fred M. Rogers

It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?

It's a neighborly day in this beauty wood,
A neighborly day for a beauty,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?

I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you!
I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.
So let's make the most of this beautiful day,
Since we're together we might as well say,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won't you be my neighbor?
Won't you please,
Won't you please?
Please won't you be my neighbor?


In Episode 0055, Henrietta Pussycat (playing the part of Goldilocks) sings this song as she arrives at the home of the Three Bears.

In Episode 1272, Handyman Negri enjoy a sunset in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe as he sings "It's a beautiful night in this neighborhood..."

"A beautiful day for an opera" sung on Episode 1475 (Bubbleland) and Episode 1535 (A Grandad for Daniel)

"It's a rainy day in this neighborhood" sung on Episode 1046.

On the hour-long special Nighttime in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Mister Rogers appropriately adjusts his opening song: "It's a beautiful night in this neighborhood...". Throughout the song, all "days" are replaced with "nights." For example, "Let's make the most of this beautiful night. Since we're together I'd say we're just right."

A slightly modified line from this song was used on the front of the 2013 St. Paul Saints pocket schedule.

A cover of this song, by Canadian pop band Dragonette, was used in a 2013 commercial for Target Canada.

An instrumental of this song plays in the background of a dedication screen on an episode of Blue's Clues dedicated to Fred Rogers.
