Sign, You're A Friend Of Mine

written by Sam Pottle and David Axlerod

sung by Big Bird (Carroll Spinney) and The Lost Generation (kids)

this version from the "Signs!" album
(1977) Children's Television Workshop

(Walk, Don't Walk
Exit, Entrance
Push, Pull, Open
Stop, Go, Caution)

Oh sign, you're a friend of mine
'Cause you tell me what to do
That's why I depend on you
(Signs can tell you what's happening)

Oh sign, you're a friend of mine
Just as long as I can read
You will tell me what I need, sign
You will tell me what I need
(Signs will tell you what you need)

If I'm lost you can help me find my way
You can tell me where to play
You can tell me how to cross the street
Or where to put my feet

Oh sign, you're a friend of mine
You're the one who lets me know
When to stop and when to go, sign
When to stop and when to go

(Walk, Don't Walk
Use The Doorway In The Rear
Exit, Entrance
There Is Spanish Spoken Here
Aqui Se Habla Espanol
Push, Pull, Open
Danger, Slippery When Wet
Stop, Go, Caution
Signs you never should forget
Signs you never should forget)

Oh sign, you're a friend of mine
And you're like a teacher, too
When you show me what to do, sign
When you show me what to do

(fade)

(Walk, Don't Walk
Exit, Entrance
Push, Pull, Open
Stop, Go, Caution)
