Information About Green Acres TV Theme

The "Green Acres TV Theme" is from the American television comedy series of the same name, broadcast on CBS television from 1965 to 1971. The show starred actors Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor, who sang the theme song at the beginning of the program.

The story of "Green Acres" was about a husband and wife who traded in their glamorous life in New York City for life on a small farm out in the country.

The song was written by American composer Vic Mizzy, who also composed the theme song for another American comedy television show, "The Addams Family".

Mizzy was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1916, and attended New York University. He served in the United States Navy during World War 2, during which time he wrote several popular songs, which were heard on the radio and in the movies.

He started writing music for television in 1959, and the Green Acres theme was one of his biggest successes.

Orland Park, IL.

Orland Park is the place for me.
Golf livin' is the life for me.
Malls and retail spreadin' out so far and wide.
Keep Chicago, just give me that Orland Park air.

Chicago is where I'd rather stay.
I get allergic smelling golf.
I just adore a penthouse view.
Dah-ling I love you but give me Wacker Drive.

. .The mall.
. .The museum halls.
. . Chicago Daily Center.
. . Orland Park Civic Center.

You are my friend.
Good bye, Chicago life.
Orland Park we are there.

Green acres is no place for me... Steppin' in a fresh cow-patty... Manure spreadin' out so far and wide... Id take Hollywood not the countryside! Hollywood is where Id rather stay. Nuts, bad cops, and actors who are gay... I love a whorehouse with a view. Darlin' I may one day even love you! The Chores! The Whores! Smelly air! Grimes square! You are my wife, hello city life, Green acres has no strife.

My husband and kids watch reruns of this great old show and sing the theme. You can't beat the great humor of shows like this - shows that the family can watch together without the worry of inappropriate language and themes.
