Sesame Spraoi

I've been doing Duolingo for a few months and still have a ton to learn. I've also been trying to listen to anything I can in Irish to work on my word recognition.

This YouTube video from Sesame Spraoi has been helpful, but I've been having a hard time keeping up with the middle segment with Elmo in the school. (is it a school?) https://youtu.be/3RmVn1MdAek

Can someone tell me what word he keeps repeating when he sings? It sounds like "orsinacht", but I can't find anything in the Gaeilge dictionary close to that that makes any sense.

It's comharsanacht - neighbourhood. Since, in the song, it's "your neighbourhood," it takes lenition - "do chomharsanacht."
