Dick Van Dyke Sings the Forgotten Lyrics to 'The Dick Van Dyke Show' Theme (VIDEO)

Dick Van Dyke Sings the Forgotten Lyrics to 'The Dick Van Dyke Show' ThemeThe theme from 'The Dick Van Dyke Show' is easily recognizable to TV fans, but the song's forgotten lyrics are probably less so. On 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC), Dick Van Dyke himself sang the full lyric to the delight of Matt Lauer.

Van Dyke ran through the entire song without so much as a stumble, easily recalling the lyrics which were written by co-star Morey Amsterdam, but were never actually used on the show.

Once Van Dyke finished, he was greeted with warm applause from the crew, and Lauer saw the opportunity for a joke. "They're telling me we weren't rolling on that," said the anchor. "Can you do that again?"

I agree with you about the music starting in the background? Why didn't they just kill it when they realized Dick was way ahead of them?

Just for the record...the words were written by Morey a few years AFTER the show was off the air. There were never any words heard during the original airing of the show.

All time greatest show. Too bad some moron started playing the music to the theme a few bars behind Dick.
Why isn't there a cable channel that shows Dick Van Dyke, My Three Sons, and other treasures?
