"Hey a Movie!" is the opening number from The Great Muppet Caper. It takes place in a busy street where Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo change into their reporter gear and try to find a good cover story for The Daily Chronicle. But when Gonzo decides to take a picture of a chicken, the trio miss Nicky Holiday stealing Lady Holiday's diamonds. Several car accidents and other catastrophes later, the reporters still remain blissfully unaware. Also in this sequence, Sweetums falls down a manhole and gets his hand stepped on by Nicky, a group of monsters take over a truck that they were caged in, and Richard Hunt makes an on-screen cameo as a taxi driver.

The song was reprised during the end credits by the Muppets as they parachuted down from an airplane. The shot where Muppets are shown being thrown out of the plane was the last thing shot for the movie.[1] The Muppets also sang "Hey a Movie!" at the start of The Muppets Go to the Movies, and in Muppets on Location: Days of Swine and Roses. An instrumental version of this song was also used as the theme for Statler and Waldorf: From the Balcony.


Kermit: Wow! There'll be spectacle
There'll be fantasy
There'll be derring do
And stuff like you would never see
All: Hey! A movie!
Yeah! We're gonna be a movie!
Kermit: Starring everybody...
Fozzie: ...And me!
There'll be heroes bold!
There'll be comedy!
And a lot of fuss
That ends for us real happily
All: Hey! A movie!
Kermit & Fozzie: We can watch it all develop!
All: Starring everybody...
Gonzo: ...And me!
We'll take a world
And set it on its ear
All: Come on, join in
We're gonna start right here

Kermit: There'll be crooks and cops!
There'll be villainy!
But with us on call
We'll fix it all real easily
All: Hey! A movie!
Fozzie: Wow! It's gonna be terrific!
All: Starring everybody...!
Nicky: And me!

All: There'll be mystery
And catastrophe
But it's all in fun
You paid the money - wait and see!
Hey! A movie!
Sweetums: Is there any way to stop it!?
All: Starring everybody
Kermit: ...And me!

Lyrics (Reprise)

We had comedy
We had mystery
Had a real good time
and solved the crime real easily

Hey a movie!
I just can't believe they did it!
Starring everybody
And me!

There was spectacle
There was fantasy
Where we took a chance
And saw romance end happily

In a movie (Oh, Kermie)
I just love a happy ending
One for everybody
Everybody in the world
And me!
(And me!
And me!
And me!
Mee Mee!
And me.
And me!
And me!
And me!
And me!
And me!
And me!
And me!
And me! Aaaahh!)
