Trivia/Info

  • From the 2001 Sampler: "This song was originally a PSA for the New York City Dept. of Transportation in the '60s. TMBG have brought it back."
  • Written by Vic Mizzy (who also wrote the Addams Family Theme) and sung by his daughter.
  • In occasional live performances, this song is sung by John Flansburgh, with a key transposition to D major and alternate lyrics; "When you're at the corner and the coast is clear, just wait, and wait, and wait until the light turns green." instead of "Walk up to the corner when the coast is clear. And wait, and wait, until you see the light turn green".
  • In some live perofrmances, the Johns' sock-puppet aliases The Avatars of They perform this song with the original lyrics, and transposed D Major.
