The Muppet Show Theme

"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)!

(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 on The Muppet Show tonight!

(Fozzie joke break)

Kermit: To introduce our guest star
That's what I'm here to do
So it really makes me happy
To introduce to you:
(Insert guest star name here)! Yaaaaaaaaaay!

So now let's get things started
Kermit and the Muppets: On the most sensational, inspirational, Celebrational, Muppetational...
This is what we call The Muppet Show!

(Gonzo bangs gong with different effect each week)

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)

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)

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

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