What was the last TV show with lyrics to its theme song; not: “Meet Cathy, who’s lived most everywhere, From Zanzibar to Berkeley Square, But Patty’s only seen the sights. A girl can see from Brooklyn Heights.” We were on a plane with her once and she was very nice — it was PanAm, so that dates us. Also, that song is what we had in the brain when we first walked into Berkeley Square. So what was the last TV show with lyrics? We note that there’s a lot of weirdness out there, with “secret lyrics.” Those don’t count.

    Don’t know what the last show was that had lyrics, but they omitted Hogan’e Heroes ‘secret lyrics’

    Heroes, heroes, husky men of war,
    Sons of all the hreoes, of the war before.
    We’re all heroes up to our ear o’s
    You ask questions
    We make suggestions
    That’s what we’re heroes for.

    All good heroes love a good, big fight
    Open up the bomb bays and brighten up the night.
    We applaud the people who laud us,
    You pull the roses,
    We punch the noses,
    That’s what we’re heroes for.

    What’s a hero do?
    Well, we’re not gonna tell ya
    Cause we wish we knew.
    That’s why we heroes are so few.
    We’ve got a slogan
    From Colonel Hogan
    And Colonel Hogan’s a hero too.

    Never flinch, boys, never be afraid,
    Heroes are not born, boys, heroes are made.
    Ask not why, boys, never say die, boys,
    Answer the call, remember we’ll all be heroes forever more.
