THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Commonsense

Music by Fred Rogers | Lyrics by Josie Carey


Now how can you be blue
When blue is not your color
You know you're brown and yellow
You'll never be blue

Don't say you're in the dumps
I'm told my place is charming
My rent is quite alarming
You're not in the dumps

And please do not tell me
Again that you are low
For there is a limit
To just how low giraffes can go

So put away your tears
And rearrange your posture
At very little cost or expense
We'll charm you and arm you with every defense
We'll do it all with commonsense
