Theme songs ----------- "Love Theme from Mystery Science Theatre [sic] 3000" from opening of _Mystery Science Theater 3000_ on KTMA TV23. Lyrics: Joel Hodgson and Josh Weinstein Music: Charles Erickson and Joel Hodgson [Sung by "Joel and the Joels."] In the not-too-distant future-- Next Sunday, A.D.-- There was a guy named Joel, Not too different than you or me. He worked in a satellite loading bay, Just polishing switches to pay his way; He did his job well with a cheerful face, But his bosses didn't like him So they shot him into space. We'll send him cheesy movies, The worst ever made. Joel says when you got lemons, You make lemonade. Now keep in mind he can't control When the movies begin or end, Because he used the extra parts To make his robot friends. Robot roll-call-- Cambot Servo Gypsy Crow! If you're wondering how he eats and breathes And other science facts, Just repeat to yourself it's just a show, I should really just relax For Mystery Science Theater 3000. ----------- "Love Theme from Mystery Science Theatre [sic]" from opening of _Mystery Science Theater 3000_ on The Comedy Channel and Comedy Central. Lyrics: Joel Hodgson and Josh Weinstein Music: Charles Erickson and Joel Hodgson [Sung by "Joel and the Joels."] 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 a red jumpsuit. 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 and watch them all, And we'll monitor his mind (la-la-la). Now keep in mind Joel can't control Where the movies begin or 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, girl!) Tom Servo! (What a cool guy!) Croooow! (What a 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!"

FRANK: Oh, ho, ho! FEINSTEIN: But, anyway, back to my original story which was that I think Oscar Hammerstein spent *TWO WEEKS* up at his Bucks County farm writing the lyrics to "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning." And he labored over it and he turns it over to Dick Rogers who sits down and promptly--in ten minutes, mind you--writes the melody. And I don't have to tell you two gentlemen that American musical theater was never quite the same thing. FRANK: What a *WONDERFUL* story! DR. FORRESTER: Uh, tell us that story about Cole Porter again. FRANK: Oh, please do! FEINSTEIN: Should I? Really? Okay. Well, Cole Porter, in, during his horse- riding accident, well, he was laying in the middle of the woods with his legs crushed, yelling for help, he decided to write "The Long Last Love." FRANK: Oh, no! FEINSTEIN: That's a true story, but what a lot of people don't know is that the lyrics were altered for its Broadway opening, yes. And the original lyrics went something like this: [Plays a haunting tune.] Very tender. [Pounds on piano.] Oh my God! I'm in so much pain! Somebody please help me! Somebody come and save me! FRANK: What an *ENCHANTING* anecdote! DR. FORRESTER: They don't write them like that anymore, do they? FEINSTEIN: They certainly do not. DR. FORRESTER: How does the Gamera theme songs stack up against songs from yesteryear? FEINSTEIN: Oh, it's interesting you should ask that because the opening lyric of the Gamera theme song has sort of a Rogers and Hart feel to it. Let me show you what I mean. [plays piano and sings] Gamera-- [plunk, plunk, plunk, plunk] Gamera-- [tra la la la, tra la la la] Gamera is really neat. Gamera is filled with meat. We all love you, Gamera. [speaks] But then the second part is a little more fun. It has a sort of George and Ira Gershwin feel to it. [sings] Shell, Teeth, Eyes, Claws, Scales, Breath, Fun. [speaks] It sort of sneaks up on you. "Boo," it says. [plays piano and sings] Gamera's enchantment still grows. He fills our hearts with love. Gamera's the latest thing. He fills our hearts with spring, spring, spring! Anytime you want some moonbeams, [whispered] Gamera is the thing. [plays piano and sings] Gamera is really neat, He is filled with turtle meat. We all love you, *GAMERA*!!! DR. FORRESTER: Ah! Kill him. Better yet, I'll kill him. You push the button.
