Song Lyrics:

**** Waving and Reaching - Earle Doud & Co. ****

(the opening is missing, never had it)

Mr. Rogers:
"... today, in the neighborhood, boys and girls, because...
We've been asked to take part... In an exercise album!
And we have some very special friends..
who have dropped-into our neighborhood... To pay us a visit...

Now, I know, You must be a student, because...
I see you have... a Geometry book under your arm...

Is it...
Solid Geometry? .. or Plane?"

Tattoo:
"DA PLAAAANE!! DA PLAAAANE!!"

Mr. Rogers:
"Cute!

Well, we're glad to have you with us...
I hope you didn't get wet coming over here because..
