Lyrics

Mailbox: Can a mailbox and a salt shaker be friends?

Steve: Hmm. That's a good question.

Mailbox and Mr. Salt: We're wondering why
We wanna know
Why we like each other so
Why, oh why, are we such good friends?

Mailbox: Your home is the kitchen.

Mr. Salt: Your home is ze yard.

Mailbox: You're so spicy!

Mr. Salt: You're such a card!

Mailbox and Mr. Salt: Why, oh why, are we such good friends?

Mailbox: You know, we like totally different things.

Mr. Salt: For example?

Mailbox: I like a-hoppin' and a-boppin' with the ball in the yard
And a groovy jigsaw puzzle if it's not too hard

Mr. Salt: I like a-shakin' and a-bakin' kooky cookies in ze kitchen
Healthy snackin', stomach-packin', lip-smackin' good nutrition!

Mailbox: I like postage stamps, summer camps, racin' cars on racin' ramps
Musical chairs and your savoir faire

Mr. Salt: Groceries and toast with cheese
A juice pop, please

Mailbox and Mr. Salt: With as many different likes as these
Why, oh why, are we such good friends?

Mailbox: You know, Mr. Salt, it really seems like there's only differences between us!

Mr. Salt: Ah, it really does seem zat way.

Mailbox: But it's your differences that make you such a good friend! I mean, that's what I like the best!

Mr. Salt: Really?

Mailbox: Yeah, it's true!

Mr. Salt: I feel that way, too!

Mailbox: I've always admired your holy, shiny head!

Mr. Salt: Oh, how great for you to have a flag instead!

Mailbox and Mr. Salt: Maybe that's why we're such good friends!

Mr. Salt: I love your metal

Mailbox: And I love your glass
We've only one thing in common

Mailbox and Mr. Salt: We both have class
Why, oh why, are we such good friends?

Mr. Salt: Mailbox, maybe I'm your friend because I like the different things you do.

Mailbox: Is that true?

Mr. Salt: Yes, it's what makes you you!
I like how you hop and you bop with ze ball in ze yard
I like your groovy jigsaw puzzles, when they're not too hard

Mailbox: I like your shakin' and your bakin' kooky cookies in your kitchen
Healthy snackin', stomach-packin', lip-smackin' good nutrition

Mr. Salt: I like your postage stamps, summer camps, racing cars on racing ramps
Musical chairs and your savoir faire!

Mailbox: Groceries and toast with cheese
A juice pop, please

Mailbox and Mr. Salt: With as many different likes as these
Why, oh why, oh why, oh why?
If you're wondering why, if you wanna know
Why we love each other so

Mr. Salt: Look at ze evidence

Mailbox: It makes such perfect sense

Mailbox and Mr. Salt: We love our differences
That's...why...we're such good friends

Mailbox: Give me five, Mr. Salt!

Mr. Salt: Euh...

Mailbox: On the flag.

Mr. Salt: I get it! We're friends because we like what makes each other different!

Mailbox: Yeah! You know, I really like what makes you you.

Mr. Salt: And I like what makes you you, too!

Steve: Wow! Even though they're so different, they can still be friends because they like what makes each other different.
