“Make You Better”
by The Decemberists

I want you, thin fingers
I wanted you, thin fingernails
And when you bend backwards
I wanted you, I needed you
Oh-oh, to make me better

I’ll love you in springtime
I lost you when summer came
And when you pulled backwards
I wanted to, I needed to
Oh-oh, to make me better
Oh-oh, to make me better

But we’re not so starry-eyed anymore
Like the perfect paramour you were in your letters
And won’t it all just come around to make you
Let it all unbreak you to the day you met her
But it’d make you better
It’d make you better

I sung you your twinges
I suffered you your tattletales
And when you broke sideways
I wanted you, I needed you
Oh-oh, to make me better
Oh-oh, to make me better

But we’re not so starry-eyed anymore
Like the perfect paramour you were in your letters
And won’t it all just come around and make you
Let it all unbreak you to the day that you met her
And it’d make you better
Did it make you better?
Make you better, oh

And all I wanted was a sliver to call mine
And all I wanted was a shimmer in your shine
To make me bright

Cause we’re not so starry-eyed anymore
Like the perfect paramour you were in your letters
And won’t it all just come around and make you
Let it all unbreak you to the day you met her
But it’d make you better
It’d make you better, oh

“‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’ was all about encouragement and support. It loved to educate kids a little, inspire them a lot and, when necessary, calm them down a bit about what may be unspoken fears,” TV critic David Bianculli says in a tribute to the show, which aired its first episode on national public television 50 years ago.

On this day in 1968, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood aired nationally for the first time on PBS. Fred’s gentle message of kindness and empathy is still as relevant today as it was 50 years ago. Thank you, Mister Rogers, for believing that all children deserve quality educational programming!
