lyrics

I built a house on Mayberry Street
Oh, isn’t it neat how we wave to each other
Living alone, well, it doesn’t exist
your absence is missed
And I love my brother

The raintime and sunshine make prismagic phantograms
In a headstand they look like a smile
The “Who are you?”s answered by “Who I Am!”s
Then a handshake, trading shoes for a mile

People have heard now of Mayberry Street
They’re arriving in fleets, seems that we’ve been discovered
It’s growing larger than we could’ve wished; each act kindness has kissed
now mankind has discovered

Every friend’s at the party and there ain’t no foes
There’s no want for departing or forgotten woes or unneeded clothes

Of course we’ve all been down to Mayberry Street
Oh, wasn’t it neat how we waved at each other
A place where we all lent a hand to our bliss, moments oh so delicious
Why can’t we have another?

Yeah, well, maybe one more but I’m not ‘xactly sure
If you think what you remember will probably be
far better maybe than what the next time you will see
then we can’t because it’d just be a bore

People have heard now of Mayberry Street
They’re arriving in fleets, seems that we’ve been discovered
It’s growing larger than we could’ve wished; each act kindness has kissed
Time to make some new brothers

The raintime and sunshine make prismagic phantograms
In a headstand they look like a smile
The “Who are you?”s answered by “Who I Am!”s
Then a handshake, trading shoes for a mile
If you breathe it in it will last for a while
Oh well isn’t it neat, yeah it’s so super sweet
Right down on Mayberry Street
