Gated Community is the nineteenth Silly Songs with Larry.

Larry was playing ball until it got stuck on a tree, which fell into a gated community.

Lyrics

The Announcer: And now it's time for Silly Songs with Larry, the part of the show where Larry comes out and sings a silly song.

Man: There once was 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

2 Men: 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

Gated Community Trio: 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: Uhh...

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

Gated Community Trio: 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 free of pleasantly devoid

Of unsightly stray debris

Charlie: Free free of debris

Gated Community Trio: (quietly) 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

(loud) What a smiling bunch we are

In our gated unity

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

(same time)

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

(solo) To the gated commun...

Gated Community Trio: What a lovely bunch we are

Larry: To the gated commun...

Gated Community Trio: What a happy bunch we are...

All: To the gated community!

The Announcer: This has been Silly Songs with Larry.

Community Fellow: Oh, look! A ball!

The Announcer: Tune in next time to hear Larry say...

Larry: Thank you.
