Theme Song Lyrics
"The Facts of Life"


You take the good,
You take the bad,
You take them both and
There you have the facts of life.
The facts of life.

There's a time you gotta go and show
You're growin' now,
You know about the facts of life.
The facts of life.

When the world never seems,
To be living up to your dreams.
And suddenly you're finding out,
The facts of life are all about you.
All about you.
You-u-u-u,
A-ll about you.
It takes a lot to get em right,
But you're learnin the facts of life.
Learnin the facts of life.
Learnin the facts of life.
Learnin the facts of li-fe.

Season 2-9 opening theme

You take the good you take the bad
you take them both and there you have
the facts of life
the facts of life
There's a time you've got to go
and show your grow'n and now you know
the facts of life
the facts of life

When the world never seems
to be living up to your dreams
and suddenly you're finding out
the facts of life are all about you

It takes a lot to get them right
when your learning the facts of life
learning the facts of life,
learning the facts of life

End Credits

You’ll avoid a lot of damages
And enjoy the fun of managing the facts of life;
They shed a lot of light
If you hear them from your brother,
Better clear them with your mother
Better get them right, call her late at night

You got the future in the palm of your hands
All you gotta do to get you through is understand
You think you rather do without,
You will never make without the truth
The facts of life is all about you
