Song Lyrics

1998

Anthony: Greg, now we're walking down the street, we want to cross the road. What do we do, Greg? What do we do?

Greg: Stop at the lights, look both ways,

Look both ways again.

Anthony: Oh yeah?

Greg: Wait for the traffic to come to a stop,

Then cross the road with a friend

Anthony: Could you say it again, Greg?

Greg: Stop at the lights, look both ways,

Look both ways again.

Anthony: Oh

Greg:Wait for the traffic to come to a stop,

Then cross the road with a friend.

We like walking

Do you like walking, too?

Anthony: Of course we do, Greg.

Greg: Then there's something that we all should do!

Ooohh La,la,la Whooo!

Anthony: Let me guess. Are you gonna say what I think?

Greg: Let's stop at the lights, look both ways,

Look both ways again.

Anthony: Ho-ho-ho!

Greg: Wait for the traffic to come to a stop,

Then cross the road with a friend.

Greg: Then there's something that we all should do.

Ooh La,la,la Whoo!

Greg: Let's stop at the lights, look both ways,

Look both ways again.

Wait for the traffic to come to a stop,

Then cross the road, cross the road, cross the road with a friend!
