The Lyrics to The Dick Van Dyke Show theme ("Main Title")

Written by Morey Amsterdam

So you think that you’ve got trouble, well, trouble’s a bubble,

So tell ol’ Mr. Trouble to get lost.

Why not hold your head up high and stop cryin’, start tryin’

And don’t forget to keep your fingers crossed.

When you find the joy of livin’ is lovin’ and givin’

You’ll be there when the winning dice are tossed.

A smile is just a frown that’s turned upside down

So smile and that frown’ll defrost.

And don’t forget to keep your fingers crossed.

 

The Lyrics To one of my favorite songs which

I guess is called " I am a fine musician"

 

( Sally ) I am a fine musician I practice every day And

people come from miles around Just to hear me play My trumpet,

my trumpet They love to hear my trumpet. Ta-tada-ta-ta,

ta-tada-ta-ta, ta-ta, ta-ta, ta-a-a…


( Buddy ) I am a fine musician And I get

lots of pay And people throw me money When they hear me play*

My tuba, my tuba They love to hear my tuba. (NOTE: Morey

Amsterdam sang it differently each time they did it. The other version

is "And when I play my tuba/People throw money my way.")

Oompa, Oompa, Oompa, Oompa, Oompa, Oompa, Oompa,

Oomp Ta-tada-ta-ta, ta-tada-ta-ta, ta-ta, ta-ta, ta-a-a…


( Rob ) I am a fine musician My music is so gay And everybody dances When they

hear me play My trombone, my trombone They love to hear my

trombone Daa-daa, daa-daa-daa, Daa-da-daa-daa, Daa-daa-daa

Oompa, Oompa, Oompa, Oompa, Oompa, Oompa, Oompa,

Oomp Ta-tada-ta-ta, ta-tada-ta-ta, ta-ta, ta-ta, ta-a-a…

 

( Laura) I am a fine musician That's what the people say And all the children follow me

When they hear me play My piccolo, my piccolo They love to hear

my piccolo Deedle-ee dee dee, Deedle-ee dee dee, Deedle deedle

dee-dee deedle-deedle dee Daa-daa, daa-daa-daa,

Daa-da-daa-daa, Daa-daa-daa Oompa, Oompa, Oompa, Oompa,

Oompa, Oompa, Oompa, Oomp Ta-tada-ta-ta, ta-tada-ta-ta, ta-ta,

ta-ta, ta-a-a…


( All Together ) We all are fine musicians We practice every day And

if you'd like to join us We'll show you the way Come join us Come

join us Come take a part and join us (As they walk off one by one)

Ta-tada-ta-ta, ta-tada-ta-ta, ta-ta, ta-ta, ta-a-a…Deedle-ee
