THEME TUNE OPENING THEME

Gotta get up
gotta get out
grab the world
by the throat and shout

Gotta find it
get us a share
makin' bread out
of nothin' but air

Ridin' high but
hittin' the ground
catchin' the Penny
but missin' the pound
Doesn't matter 'cause
we'll soon turn it around

Soon as we get home (with the bread)
we make it and we take it home (with the bread)
and nothin's gonna break it, home
we keep it in the family

We'll be right at home
