"The Muppet Show Theme" was played at the beginning and end of every episode of The Muppet Show. Although it evolved visually over the course of the show's five seasons, the musical composition remained substantially the same

Lyrics

Kermit (spoken): It's the Muppet Show, with our very special guest star, (Insert guest star name here)! Yaaaaaaaaaay!

(Instrumental break)

Girls: It's time to play the music,
It's time to light the lights,
It's time to meet the Muppets on The Muppet Show tonight!

Boys: It's time to put on makeup,
It's time to dress up right,
It's time to get things started

Audience: Why don't you get things started?
(Statler and Waldorf make a different wisecrack each week)
Kermit: It's time to get things started
Kermit and the Muppets: On the most sensational, inspirational, Celebrational, Muppetational...
This is what we call The Muppet Show!

(Gonzo blows trumpet with different effect each week)

Version from The Muppets

Kermit (spoken): It's the Muppet Telethon with our very special guest, Mr. Jack Black! YAAAAY!

Girls: It's time to play the music,
It's time to light the lights,
It's time to meet the Muppets on The Muppet Show tonight!

Boys: It's time to put on makeup,
It's time to dress up right,
It's time to get things started!

Hobo Joe (in a high female voice): Why don't you get things started?

Statler (spoken): I always dreamed we'd be back here.
Waldorf (spoken): Dreams? Those were nightmares!
Both: DOHOHOHO!

Kermit: It's time to get things started
Kermit and the Muppets: On the most sensational,
inspirational
celebrational,
Muppetational
This is what we call The Muppet Show!

(A Tarzan yell comes out of Gonzo's Trumpet)

Version from Muppets Most Wanted

(translated to English)

Constantine (spoken): It's El Muppet Show with our very special guest star, Salma Hayek! Yaaaaay!!

Girls: It's time to play the music,
it's time to light the lights,
it's time to meet the Muppets on El Muppet Show tonight!

Boys: It's time to put on makeup,
It's time to dress up right,
It's time to get things started!

Pepe (spoken): Time for my solo!

Pepe: Why do we always come here?
I guess we'll never know
It's like a kind of torture
to have to watch the show! Hehaha!

Constantine: It's time to get things started
Constantine and the Muppets: On the most sensational
Inspirational
Celebrational
Muppetational
This is what we call El Muppet Show!

(Gonzo's trumpet inflates a soccer ball, which then shoots out of the trumpet)
