TV Theme Song Lyrics

TV Theme Song Lyrics ~ Mr Ed the Talking Horse
by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston

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.

TV Theme Song Lyrics ~ Petticoat Junction
(by Paul Henning and Curt Massey)

Come ride the little train, 
that is rolling down the tracks, 
to the junction.
Forget about your cares, 
it is time to relax, 
at the junction. 
Lots of 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. (Petticoat Junction
And that's Uncle Joe, 
he's a movin' kind of slow 
at the junction, Petticoat Junction. 

TV Theme Song Lyrics ~ Green Acres
(by Vic Mizzy)

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. 

Wife (Spoken):
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. 

Husband: The chores. 
Wife: The stores. 
Husband: Fresh air. 
Wife: Times Square 

Husband: You are my wife. 
Wife: Good bye, city life. 
Husband and Wife: Green Acres we are there.

TV Theme Song Lyrics ~ Beverly Hillbillies
(The Ballad of Jed Clampett by Paul Henning)

Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed 
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. 

Well the first thing you know ol Jed's a millionaire, 
Kinfolk said "Jed move away from there" 
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 its time to say good by to Jed and all his kin. 
And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in. 
You're all invited back a gain to this locality 
To have a heapin helpin of their hospitality 

Hillybilly that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off. 

Y'all come back now, y'hear?.
