Television Theme Song Lyrics


A line from a tv theme song is given, and the next person gives the next line, the name of the show, and a line from another show to continue the game. Tp make it a little harder, the line given as a clue doesn't have to be the first line of the lyrics. I'll start with:

Phoebe Figalilly is a silly name...

I remember singing this when I was a kid:
That's no nut, boy-that's Captain Nice!
Captain Nice

A stage and a wagon a-headin' West
Part of a wagon train lost from the rest

Note: My Beloved reminded me of another important rule of the game. If it wasn't sung during the title sequence on a regular basis, it doesn't count as a theme song for the purpose of this game, so the words to the original Star Trek theme and the words sung during an early episode of Bonanza are out.

Well, you stopped this thread. I’ll guess “Glorious Mission”. If I’m right, please let me know before I post a new one.
