I am currently making my way through the first season of The Golden Girls. I first got introduced to this sitcom when I did the comedy course and the lecturer wanted to show us the typical sitcom characters.
For those of you haven’t been introduced to the lovely ladies.
Why they are all fabulous characters my favourite would have to be the mother and daughter pair. Dorothy Zbornak and Sophia Petrillo.
The writers of the show knew their stuff when they were writing each episode that ran for 21 minutes each.
The title of this post is the theme tune for the series and was composed by Andrew Gold, the tv version was sung by Cynthia Fee. The lyrics are:
Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
Well, your heart is true, you’re a pal and a confidante.
And if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew,
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
…And the card attached would say “Thank you for being a friend”
