Theme from “Roberta Right”

Original Version

Everything she does is all too much
Quite a bit too much
She’s just a touch too much
Everything she makes is so damn neat
So saccharin-o-sweet
It’s bad for her teeth, o-o-oh

Ro-Ro-Roberta Roberta Right
You can do what you want with your life
And I feel like going out tonight
Would-a you like to come along?
Would-a you like to come along?

All the games she plays are dull to play
They’re either black or grey
And that’s on a jolly day
And the words she says are hard to get
Her sound is loudly set
Like on a jumbo jet, o-o-oh

Ro-Ro-Roberta Roberta Right
You should do what you want with your life
And I feel like going out tonight
Would-a you like to come along?
Would-a you like to come along?

– “Come along? Come alive?
You got nuthin’ to do with my life!”
