Who Are The People In My Neighborhood?

As I was walking to work last week, I realized I say Good Morning to the same people every day. In fact one morning, a person (we are not on first name basis) said “Didn’t see you yesterday”

“Hmm…”
I thought, “there’s something nice about being familiar with your neighborhood.”


Now, hold that thought because at that moment I was taken right back to my childhood days. Remember, the Sesame Street song “Who are the people in your neighborhood?








Well from that point onwards I was singing until I got to work. Check out the people in my neighborhood. Sing along, my lyrics below.


Oh, who are the people in my neighborhood?
In my neighborhood?

In my neighborhood?

Say, who are the people in my neighborhood?

The people that I meet each day.


Oh, da sandwich lady cooks on wheels,

Quick, cheap and greasy first meals.

Selling egg and cheese for two bucks,

She’s only there for breakfast, which sucks.


'Cause da sandwich lady is a person in my neighborhood,

In my neighborhood,

In my neighborhood,
Da sandwich lady is a person in my neighborhood,
A person that I meet each day.


Oh, da hus’le man always has good deals,

On items you’re not sure he steals,

But he can get me the latest DVD,

At a price none of da stores can beat.


'Cause da hus’le man is a person in my neighborhood,

In my neighborhood,

In my neighborhood,

And da sandwich lady is a person in my neighborhood.


They’re the people that I meet,

When I am walking down the street,

They’re the people that I meet each day.


Crazy? I know. If only I had more time I would make a video for you guys.

Much luv until next week…peace and happy holidays!

LOL! You're silly! The sandwich lady...I bet she does a great bacon, egg and cheese sammich! Yummy! Who do I meet in my neighborhood each day? Bus driver. Unruly teenagers. And the McDonald's cashier for my Sweet Tea!

For me school crossing guards; East Indian/Pakistanian/other gas station and small store owners and plenty of ill mannered teens. (I live 2 blocks from an inner city HS of 3,000).
