As Milo Meander walks down the streets,

He gets the cold shoulder from each neighbor he meets.

Sam Snoozle, Sir Schlupp, and Miss Macy Bly,

Fred Frigate, Gumby, and Pudge pass him by.

But Milo learns how to break through the ice,

To discover his neighbors are really quite nice.

Milo is happy with his newfound good luck,

And so are his friends Dog, Frog, and Duck
