Lyrics

Green acres is the place to be.
Farm livin' is the life for me.
Land spreadin' out so far and wide.
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.

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.

. .The chores.
. .The stores.
. .Fresh air.
. .Times Square.

You are my wife.
Good bye, city life.
Green Acres we are there.

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.
