Get the Mets mojo goin'.

That's pretty much the goal of a World Series pep rally for the Amazins on Monday at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola.

Nassau County officials say they're staging the rally, starting at 5 p.m., and fans are encouraged to wear Mets jerseys and paint their faces in blue and orange.

The dome of the building will be lit in those Mets colors, former Mets players will be on hand, and Long Island Rail Road officials will have information on special trains scheduled for stops at Citi Field for Games 3 and 4, according to a news release from the office of County Executive Edward Mangano.

The release made no mention of Yankees fans, but it is assumed they are welcome to attend and encouraged to even change their allegiance to the Amazins, if they so desire.

The Mets begin the World Series on the road Tuesday; their first home game in the Fall Classic is Friday.
