Twilight Zone: The Musical Revue - Welcome to Maple Street
(Sung to the tune of "On the Street Where You Live")
We have always lived on this street before
But we’ve never seen such evil and deceit before
From the neighbors who we once thought we knew
On our dear Maple Street where we live
Does your Chrysler start? Have you any lights?
Why, I’ve seen you up and working late so many nights
And your picket fence could be evidence
For j’accuse on the street where we live
And oh! The heightening feeling
That our friends are not what they seem
It’s such a frightening feeling
That any second we could wake up from this dream
Is it Commie plot, or attack from Mars?
Well, we'll teach them not to tangle with the Stars n’ Bars
Honey, grab my gun, ‘cause it’s time to run
And defend Maple Street where we live
And of course, a coda from the aliens...
Now you see the plan? Pure simplicity
Be selective when you cut off electricity
Once they’re feeling stressed, nature does the rest
As we take every street where they live
