Lyrics

SINGERS (O.S.)
There once lived a boy
Who lived in a house
And the house sat under a tree
By the tree ran a fence
that stretched far and wide
round the gated community…

LARRY
Can I have my ball?
Can you get my ball?
I kicked it into the tree.
And my ball bounced up
And my ball dropped in
To the gated community!

SINGERS
Oh! The gated community
Is where we like to be
Everything’s so lovely
Oh! Our hearts are
Filled with glee.
And when you come to visit
You can stand outside and see
What a lovely bunch we are….    In our gated unity!

LARRY
Um…
Can I have my ball?
Can you get my ball?
I kicked it into the tree.
And my ball bounced up
And my ball dropped in
To the gated community!

SINGERS
Oh, the gated community
Is where we like to be
Our clothes are never dirty
And our lawns are always green
And when you come to visit
You can stand outside and see
What a tidy bunch we are
In our gated unity!

The gated community
We think you will agree
Is pleasantly devoid of
Unsightly stray debris
Free, free of debris

The Gated Community
Is where we’ll always be
Our smiles are wide
When we’re inside
In comfy custody
And when you come to visit
You can stand outside and see
What a smily bunch we are
In our gated unity!

LARRY (singing simultaneously with the Singers)
Can I have my ball?
Can you get my ball?
I kicked it into a tree.
And my ball bounced up,
And my ball dropped in,

SINGERS (singing simultaneously with Larry)
Oh, the gated community
Is where we like to be!
Our lives have been made perfect
By a hefty entrance fee!
And when you come to visit,
You can stand outside and see,

LARRY
to the gated commun….

SINGERS (echo)
What a lovely bunch we are…

LARRY
To the gated commun…

SINGERS (echo)
What a happy bunch we are!

SINGERS (in unison with Larry)
In our gated unity!
LARRY (in unison with Singers)
To the gated community!
