Brady Bunch Theme Song
by Sherwood Schwartz and Frank De Vol

Here's the story of a lovely lady,
Who was bringing up three very lovely girls.
All of them had hair of gold, like their mother,
The youngest one in curls.

It's the story of a man named Brady,
Who was busy with three boys of his own.
They were four men living all together,
Yet they were all alone.

Till the one day when the lady met this fellow,
And they knew that it was much more than a hunch.
That's this group would somehow form a family,
That's the way we all became the Brady Bunch.

The Brady Bunch, The Brady Bunch.
That's the way we became the Brady Bunch.  

Sherwood Schwartz initially wanted Florence Henderson to perform the theme song, but The Peppermint Trolley Company did it the first season, then the kids sung it the other seasons.

"We Can Make the World a Whole Lot Brighter"
Words and music by Robert John and Michael Gately

Birds flying high,
In search of a clear blue sky,
As they're chopping down the trees below them.

Come take a stand,
And help us save the land,
Let's go out and try to make things better.

And maybe we can make the world a whole lot brighter,
We can make the load a little lighter.
Everybody has to try together,
Don't you know it's now or never.

Meadows once green are few and far between
And the rivers might run brown tomorrow
God made the land for each and every man
So we must do all we can to save it

And maybe we can make the world a whole lot brighter
We can make the load a little lighter
Everybody has to try together
Don't you know it's now or never

"Time to Change"
Words and music by R. Bloodworth, C. Welch, B. Mechel

Sha na na na na na na na na,
Sha na na na na.
Sha na na na na na na na na,
Sha na na na na.

Autumn turns to winter,
And winter turns to spring.
It doesn't go just for seasons you know,
It goes for everything.

The same is true for voices,
When boys begin to grow.
You gotta take a lesson from Mother Nature,
And if you do you'll know.

When it's time to change (when it's time to change),
Don't fight the tide, go along for the ride,
Don't ya see.
When it's time to change, you've got to rearrange,
Who you are and what you're gonna be.
Sha na na na na na na na na
Sha na na na na.
Sha na na na na na na na na na
Sha na na na na

Day by day you're facing the changes you've been through,
A little bit of living, a little bit of growing all adds up to you.
Every boy's a man inside,
A girl a woman too.
And if you want to reach your destiny,
Then here's what you can do.

Repeat Chorus

#92.  "Amateur Nite"

"It's a Sunshine Day (Everybody's Smiling)"

I think I'll go for a walk outside now,
The summer sun's calling my name, I hear it now.
I just can't stay inside all day,
I've got to get out, gimme some of those rays.

Everybody's smiling (sunshine day),
Everybody's laughing (sunshine day),
Everybody seems so happy today in the sunshine day.

Oooh. Can't you dig the sunshine?
Feel the sun and the rays.
Can't you hear it calling your name?

Repeat first verse.

The kids sang this song as their audition to get onto the show.

"Keep On"

Riding down the highway in a makeshift Model T.A.
Ooh Yeah (ooh)
Beautiful morning and it's gonna be a beautiful day.

The wheels are humming,
The guitar strumming.
The radio a blasting,
The good times a coming.
Riding down the highway in a makeshift Model T.A.

We're gonna keep on, keep on, keep on singing and dancing all through the night.
Keep on, keep on, keep on doing it right.
We're gonna keep on, keep on , keep on moving,
We're gonna keep on, keep on, keep on grooving.
Keep on singing and dancing all through the night.

You can hear the music from a hundred miles away

The kids performed this as the Silver Platters on the "Pete Sterne Amateur Hour" to earn money to pay for Mike and Carol's anniversary present.  

#98 Adios Johnny Bravo

"You've Got to Be in Love to Love a Love Song"
You've got to be in love to love a love song.  You've got to be in love like I love you and I do.
You're the love in my song, I've just got to sing along, with you...

"Good Time Music"
Let me hear some of that good time music,
That I love to hear.
I've got plenty of blues,
And sort of bad news.
And I need to buy me some cheer.

There's no sense of walking around with your feet stuck to the ground.
It's much better to put yourself together,
Create a lot of vibes and good cheer for humanity.
That's fine with me.

This was performed on the Hal Barton variety show after the Johnny Bravo fiasco in #98 "Adios Johnny Bravo."
