Daria

La la la la la

This is my stuff
Got to get off
I might go pop
Excuse me, Excuse me

I've got to be direct (la la la)
If I'm off, please correct (la la la)
You're standing on my neck

Look right through me
Say I'm gloomy
Well so sue me
Excuse me, excuse me

I've got to be direct (la la la)
Its like a big train wreck (la la la)
You're standing on my neck (la la la)
You're standing on my neck (la la la)
You're standing on my neck (la la la)

Nothing is like I planned it
So funny I can't stand it
Wish I was made of granite
I must be on another planet




Gilligan's Island

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
a tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port
aboard this tiny ship
The mate was a mighty sailin' man
the skipper brave and sure
Five passengers set sail that day
for a three hour tour
a three hour tour

The weather started getting rough
the tiny ship was tossed
If not for the courage of the fearless crew
the Minnow would be lost
the Minnow would be lost

The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle
with Gilligan, the Skipper too
the Millionaire and his Wife
the Movie Star and the rest
[the Movie Star the Professor and Mary Ann]
here on Gilligan's Isle

So this is the tale of our castaways
they're here for a long long time
They'll have to make the best of things
it's an uphill climb

The first mate and his skipper too
will do their very best
to make the others comfortable
in the tropic island nest

No boat, no light, no motor cars
not a single luxury
Like Robinson Crusoe
it's primitive as can be

So join us here each week my friend
you're sure to get a smile
From seven stranded castaways
Here on Gilligan's Isle




Scooby Dooby Doo

Scooby-Dooby-Doo, Where Are You?
We got some work to do now
Scooby-Dooby-Doo, Where Are You
We need some help from you now

Come on Scooby Doo, I see you
pretending you got a sliver
But you're not fooling me
'cause I can see
the way you shake and shiver

You know we got a mystery to solve
so Scooby Doo be ready for your act
[Scooby] Uh-uh Uh-uh
Don't hold back!
And Scooby Doo if you come through
you're going to have your self a scooby snack!
That's a fact!

Scooby-Dooby-Doo, here are you
You're ready and you're willing
If we can count on you, Scooby Doo
I know you'll catch that villain




Sailor Moon

Fighting evil by moonlight
Winning love by daylight
Never running from a real fight
She is the one named Sailor Moon

She will never turn her back on a friend
She is always there to defend
She is the one on whom we can depend
She is the one named Sailor

Sailor Venus
Sailor Mercury
Sailor Mars
Sailor Jupiter

With secret powers
All so new to her
She is the one named Sailor Moon

Fighting evil by moonlight
Winning love by daylight
With her Sailor Scouts to help fight
She is the one named Sailor Moon
She is the one named Sailor Moon

She is the one... Sailor Moon!




Flintstones

Flintstones
Meet the Flintstones
They're a modern Stone Age family
From the town of Bedrock
They're a page right out of history
Let's ride with the family down the street
Through the courtesy of Fred's two feet
When you're with the Flintstones
Have a Yabba Dabba Doo time
A Dabba Doo time
We'll have a gay old time

Flintstones
Meet the Flintstones
They're a modern Stone Age family
From the town of Bedrock
They're a page right out of history
Someday maybe Fred will win the fight
Then that cat will stay out for the night
When you're with the Flintstones
Have a Yabba Dabba Doo time
A Dabba Doo time
We'll have a gay old time




Brady Bunch

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

Here's the story
Of a man named Brady
Who was busy with three boys of his own
They were four men
Living all together
but they were all alone

Till the one day when the lady met this fellow
and they knew it was much more than a hunch
That this group
Must somehow form a family
That's the way we all became the Brady Bunch
The Brady Bunch
The Brady Bunch
That's the way we became the Brady Bunch




Underdog

When criminals in this world appear
And break the laws that they should fear
And frighten all who see or hear

The cry goes up both far and near for Underdog!
Underdog!
Underdog!

Speed of lightning, roar of thunder
Fighting all who rob or plunder
Underdog!

When in this world the headlines read
Of those whose hearts are filled with greed
And rob and steal from those who need
To right this wrong with blinding speed comes Underdog!
Underdog!
Underdog!

Speed of lightning, roar of thunder
Fighting all who rob or plunder
Underdog!




Hong Kong Phooey

Hong Kong Phooey
Number one super guy
Hong Kong Phooey
Quicker than the human eye

Oh, he's got style, a groovy smile
And a car that just won't stop
When the goin' gets rough, he's super tough
With the Hong Kong Phooey chop




H. R. Pufnstuf

Once upon a summertime, just a dream from yesterday
A boy and his magic golden flute heard a boat from off the bay
"Come and play with me, Jimmy, come and play with me
And I will take you on a trip far across the sea"

But the boat belonged to a kooky old witch
Who had in mind the flute to snitch
From her vroom broom in the sky
She watched her plans materialize
She waved her wand, the beautiful boat was gone
The sky grew dark, the sea grew rough
And the boat sailed on
And on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on

H.R. Pufnstuf
Who's your friend when things get rough
H.R. Pufnstuf
Can't do a little 'cause he can't do enough

But Pufnstuf was watching too and knew exactly what to do
He saw the witch's boat attack and as the boy was fighting back
He called his rescue racer crew (as often they'd rehearsed)
And off to save the boy they flew but... who would get there first!

H.R. Pufnstuf
Who's your friend when things get rough
H.R. Pufnstuf
Can't do a little 'cause he can't do enough

But now the boy had washed ashore
Puf arrived to save the day
Which made the witch so mad and sore
She shook her fist and screamed away




Banana Splits

One banana, two banana, three banana, four
Four bananas make a bunch and so do many more
Over hill and highway the Banana Buggies go
Comin' on to bring you The Banana Splits Show

Makin' up a mess of fun
Makin' up a mess of fun
Lots of fun for everyone

Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la

Four banana, three banana, two banana, one
All bananas playing in the bright warm sun
Flippin' like a pancake, poppin' like a cork
Fleagle, Bingo, Drooper and Snork

Two banana, four banana, one banana, three
Swingin' like a bunch of monkeys hangin' from a tree
Hey there everybody, won't you come along and see
How much like banana splits everyone can be

Makin' up a mess of fun
Makin' up a mess of fun
Lots of fun for everyone




Speed Racer

Here he comes, here comes Speed Racer, he's a demon on wheels
He's a demon and he's gonna be chasin' after someone
He's gainin' on you so you better look alive
He's busy revvin' up the powerful Mach 5
And when the odds are against him and there's dangerous work
You bet your life Speed Racer will see it through

Go Speed Racer, go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer, go!
Go Speed Racer, go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer, go, go, man, go!
Go Speed... go

He's off and flyin' as he guns the car around the track
He's jammin' down the pedal like he's never comin' back
Adventures waitin' just ahead

Go Speed Racer, go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer, go!
Go Speed Racer, go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer, go, go, go, go!
Go Speed Racer, go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer, go!
Go Speed Racer, go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer, go!

Taller than tall
Quicker than quick
Stronger than strong
Ready to fight for right against wrong

Gigantor, Gigantor, Gigantor
Gigantor, Gigantor, Gigantor




Bugs Bunny Overture

Overture, curtains, lights
This is it, the night of nights
No more rehearsing and nursing a part
We know every part by heart
Overture, curtains, lights
This is it, you'll hit the heights
And oh what heights we'll hit
On with the show this is it

Tonight what heights we'll hit
On with the show this is it




Casper

Casper, the friendly ghost
The friendliest ghost you know
Though grown-ups might
Look at him with fright
The children all love him so

He always says hello (Hello)
and he's really glad to meetcha
Wherever he may go
He's kind to every living creature

Grown-ups don't understand
Why children love him the most
But kids all know
That he loves them so
Casper the friendly ghost




Mighty Mouse

Mister Trouble never hangs around
When he hears this Mighty sound

"Here I come to save the day"

That means that Mighty Mouse is on his way
Yes sir, when there is a wrong to right
Mighty Mouse will join the fight
On the sea or on the land
He gets the situation well in hand




Road Runner

If you're on the highway and Road Runner goes beep beep
Just step aside or you might end up in a heap
Road Runner, Road Runner runs on the road all day
Even the coyote can't make him change his ways

Road Runner, the coyote's after you
Road Runner, if he catches you you're through
Road Runner, the coyote's after you
Road Runner, if he catches you you're through

That coyote is really a crazy clown
When will he learn he can never slow him down?
Poor little Road Runner never bothers anyone
Just runnin' down the road's his idea of having fun




Roger Ramjet

Roger Ramjet and his Eagles
Fighting for our freedom

Not to join him but to beat him

Roger Ramjet he's our man
Hero of our nation
For his adventure just be sure
And stay tuned to this station

Come and join us all you kids
For lots of fun and laughter
As Roger Ramjet and his men
Get all the crooks they're after




Yogi Bear

Yogi Bear is smarter than the average bear
Yogi Bear is always in the ranger's hair
At a picnic table you will find him there
Stuffing down more goodies than the average bear

He will sleep till noon but before it's dark
He'll have every picnic basket that's in Jellystone Park

Yogi has it better than a millionaire
That's because he's smarter than the average bear




Petticoat Junction

Come ride the little train that is rolling down the tracks to the junction
(Petticoat Junction)
Forget about your cares, it is time to relax at the junction
(Petticoat Junction)

Lotsa curves, you bet. Even more when you get
To the junction, Petticoat Junction

There's a little hotel called the Shady Rest at the junction
(Petticoat Junction)
It is run by Kate, come and be her guest at the junction
(Petticaor Junction)
And that's Uncle Joe, he's a movin' kind of slow at the junction
Petticoat Junction




Mr. Ed

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 Mr. Ed

Go right to the source and ask the horse
He'll give you the answer that you'll endorse
He's always on a steady course
Talk to Mr. Ed

People yakkity yak a streak and waste your time of day
But Mister Ed will never speak unless he has something to say

A horse is a horse, of course, of course
And this one'll talk 'til his voice is hoarse
You never heard of a talking horse?

Well listen to this

I am Mister Ed




Monkees

Here we come
Walking down the street
We get the funniest looks from
Everyone we meet

Hey, hey we're the Monkees
and people say we monkey around
But we're too busy singing
to put anybody down

We're just trying to be friendly
Come watch us sing and play
We're the young generation
And we got something to say

Hey, hey we're the Monkees
You never know where we'll be found
So you'd better get ready
We may be comin to your town




Green Acres

Green acres is the place for me
Farm livin' is the life for me
Land spreadin' out so far and wide
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside

New York is where I'd rather stay
I get allergic smelling hay
I just adore a penthouse view
Dah-ling I love you but give me Park Avenue

The chores
The stores
Fresh air
Times Square
You are my wife
Good bye, city life

Green Acres we are there




Beverly Hillbillies

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer who barely kept his family fed
Then one day he was shootin at some food
And up from the ground came a bubblin' crude

Oil, that is
Black gold
Texas tea

Well the first thing you know ole Jed's a millionaire
Kinfolk said "Jed, move away from here"
Said "Californy is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly

Hills, that is
Swimmin' pools
movie stars

Well now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin
And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in
You're all invited back again to this locality
To have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality

Set a spell
Take your shoes off

Y'all come back now, y'hear?

Mysterious and spooky

Where people come to see 'em

So get a witch's shawl on
A broomstick you can crawl on
We're gonna pay a call on
The Addams Family




Welcome Back Kotter

To that same old place that you laughed about

Well the names have all changed since you hung around
But those dreams have remained and they're turned around

Who'd have thought they'd lead ya (Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
Here where we need ya (Here where we need ya)

Yeah we tease him a lot cause we've hot him on the spot, welcome back
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back




WKRP in Cincinnati

Baby, if you've ever wondered
Wondered whatever became of me
I'm living on the air in Cincinnati
Cincinnati, WKRP

Got kind of tired packing and unpacking
Town to town and up and down the dial
Maybe you and me were never meant to be
But baby think of me once in a while

I'm at WKRP in Cincinnati




Mary Tyler Moore Show

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
You're gonna make it after all

How will you make it on your own?
This world is awfully big, girl this time you're all alone
But it's time you started living
It's time you let someone else do some giving




All in the Family

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

And you knew who you were then
Girls were girls and men were men
Mister we could use a man
Like Herbert Hoover again

Didn't need no welfare state
Everybody pulled his weight
Gee our old LaSalle ran great
Those were the days




Friends

So no one told you life was going to be this way
Your job's a joke, you're broke, you're love life's DOA
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
Well, it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year

But, I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you, like I've been there before
I'll be there for you, cause you're there for me too

You're still in bed at ten, the work began at eight
You've burned your breakfast, so far, things are going great
Your mother warned you there'd be days like these
But she didn't tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees

That, I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you, like I've been there before
I'll be there for you, cause you're there for me too

No one could ever know me, no one could ever see me
Seems like you're the only one who knows what it's like to be me
Someone to face the day with, make it through all the rest with
Someone I'll always laugh with, even at my worst, I'm best with you

It's like you're always stuck in second gear
Well, it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year

But, I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour
I'll be there for you, like I've been there before
I'll be there for you, cause you're there for me too




Mad About You

Tell me why, I love you like I do
Tell me who, Can stop my heart as much as you
Tell me all your secrets and I'll tell you most of mine
They say nobody's perfect but it is really true this time
I don't have the answers
And I don't have a plan
All I have is you
So darling help me understand
What we do
You can whisper in my ear
Where we go
who knows what happens after here
Let's take each other's hands
As we jump into the final frontier
I'm mad about you
I'm mad about you
So mad about you




MST3K

In the not too distant future
Next Sunday A.D.
There was a guy named Joel
Not too different from you or me

He worked at Gizmonic Institute
Just another face in red jump suit
He did a good job cleaning up the place
But his bosses didn't like him so they shot him into space

We'll send him cheesy movies
The worst we can find...(la! la! la!)
He'll have to sit & watch them all
Then we'll monitor his mind...(la! la! la!)

Now keep in mind Joel can't control
When the movies begin & end...(la! la! la!)
Because he used those special parts
To make his robot friends:

ROBOT ROLL CALL (Let's Go!)

Cambot (Pan Left!)
Gypsy (Hi Girls!)
Tom Servo (Hi Tall Guy!)
Crooooooow (I'm The Wisecracker!)

If you're wondering how he eats and breathes
And other science facts...(la! la! la!)
Then repeat to yourself "it's just a show
I should really just relax
For Mystery Science Theater 3000"




South Park

I'm goin' down to South Park
Gonna have myself a time
Friendly faces everywhere
Humble folks without temptation
Goin' down to South Park
Gonna leave my woes behind
Ample parking day or night
People shouting Howdy Neighbor
Heading on up to South Park
Gonna see if I can't unwind
I like girls with big fat [], I like girls with big []
Come on down to South Park and meet some friends of mine




Davy Crockett

Born on a mountain top in Tennessee
Greenest state in the land of the free
Raised in the woods so's he knew every tree
Killed him a bear when he was only three
Davy, Davy Crockett
King of the Wild Frontier

He fought single handed through the Injun war
Till the Creeks was whipped and peace was restored
And while he was handling this risky chore
Made himself a legend, forevermore
Davy, Davy Crockett
The man who don't know fear

When he lost his love, and his grief was gall
In his heart he wanted to leave it all
And lose himself in the forest tall
But he answered instead, his country's call
Davy, Davy Crockett
The choice of the whole frontier

He went off to Congress and served a spell
Fixin' up the government and laws as well
Took over Washington, so we hear tell
And patched up the crack in the Liberty Bell
Davy, Davy Crockett
Seein' his duty clear. (Serving his country well)

When he come home, his politickin' done
The western march had just begun
So he packed his gear, and his trusty gun
And lit out a grinnin' to follow the sun
Davy, Davy Crockett
Leadin' the Pioneers

His land is biggest, and his land is best
From grassy plains to the mountain crest
He's ahead of us all in meeting the test
Followin' his legend right into the West
Davy, Davy Crockett
King of the Wild Frontier




Rawhide

Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Rawhide!

Rollin', rollin', rollin'
Though the streams are swollen
Keep them dogies rollin'
Rawhide!
Rain and wind and weather
Hell-bent for leather
Wishin' my gal was by my side
All the things I'm missin'
Good vittles, love, and kissin'
Are waiting at the end of my ride

Move 'em on, head 'em up
Head 'em up, move 'em on
Move 'em on, head 'em up
Rawhide
Count 'em out, ride 'em in
Ride 'em in, count 'em out
Count 'em out, ride 'em in
Rawhide!

Keep movin', movin', movin'
Though they're disapprovin'
Keep them dogies movin'
Rawhide!
Don't try to understand 'em
Just rope, throw, and brand 'em
Soon we'll be living high and wide
My hearts calculatin'
My true love will be waitin'
Be waitin' at the end of my ride

Rawhide!
Rawhide!




Paper Chase

The first years are hard years
Much more than you know
With good friends to love us
we'll fill every row

Stay open to all things
Unknown and new
Then one day, we'll all say
"Hey look, we've come through
hey look, we've come through
The first years"




Cheers

Makin' your way in the world today takes everything you've got
Takin' a break from all your worries sure would help a lot
Wouldn't you like to get away?

Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name
And they're always glad you came
You wanna be where you can see
Our troubles are all the same
You wanna go where everybody knows your name

You wanna go where people know
People are all the same
You wanna go where everybody knows your name
