TV sitcom theme songs.

None of these are real hard, so have fun!

Hint: They span from the 50s through the 70s.

Name the TV show.







1. Who can turn the world on with her smile?
Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it's you girl, and you should know it
With each glance and every little movement you show it

Love is all around, no need to waste it
You can have a town, why don't you take it
You're gonna make it after all

2. But they're cousins,
Identical cousins all the way.
One pair of matching bookends,
Different as night and day.

3. They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're all together ooky,
The ______ ______

4. . Here's the story of a lovely lady
Who was bringing up three very lovely girls.
All of them had hair of gold, like their mother,
The youngest one in curls.

5. Come and listen to a story about a man named ___
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
Then one day he was shootin at some food,
And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.
Oil that is.
Black gold.
Texas tea.

6. On your mark, get set, and go now,
Got a dream and we just know now,
We're gonna make our dream come true.
And we'll do it our way, yes our way.
Make all our dreams come true,
And do it our way, yes our way,
Make all our dreams come true
For me and you.

7. Boy the way Glen Miller played
Songs that made the hit parade.
Guys like us we had it made,
Those were the days.

8. The mate was a mighty sailing man,
The skipper brave and sure.
Five passengers set sail that day
For a three hour tour, a three hour tour.

9. Through early morning fog I see
visions of the things to be
the pains that are withheld for me
I realize and I can see...

10. A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
And no one can talk to a horse of course
That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous __ __.

BONUS:
There's a hold up in the Bronx,
Brooklyn's broken out in fights.
There's a traffic jam in Harlem
That's backed up to Jackson Heights.
There's a scout troup short a child,

Steve,

I think Joan Jett did a cover of this for ESPN's coverage of the NCAA Women's Final Four several years ago. Naturally, much more rockin'. If you find a copy of it, I'd love to have one.

Gracie,

I'll watch for that for you.

I lived in the Twin Cities in the mid 70s when the show was being filmed.

Most folks will never realize how immensely proud Minneapolis was, as every week, they watched Mary Richards stroll down their very own Lake of the Isles, ride the Skyway Escalator in the IDS building, and throw her hat into the air on Nicollet Mall.

She was THEIR Mary.

And she's gonna make it after all!
