THEME TUNE OPENING THEME

Well, if you're feelin' lonely,
and gettin' in a stew,
Just bend your ear,
Come over here,
and man here's what you.

If you got the blues
I got some news
Join in the fun in your blue suede shoes
Do the holiday rock
Do the holiday rock
The holi-holi-hi-de-hi holiday rock

Hi-de-hi-de-hi
Ho-de-ho-de-ho
Go, go, go
Do the holiday rock

Hi-de-hi-de-hi
Ho-de-ho-de-ho
Go, go, go
do the holiday rock

CLOSING THEME

If you got the blues

Join in the fun in your blue suede shoes
Do the holiday rock

The holi-holi-hi-de-hi holiday rock

Hi-de-hi-de-hi
ho-de-ho-de-ho
collect your clothes and go go go
The holday rock, the holiday rock
The holi-holi-hi-de-hi holiday rock

If you can't get a chick
You don't know the trick
Either way you can take your pick
Do the holiday rock

Do the holiday rock
Do the holiday rock
The holi-holi-hi-de-hi holiday rock

Summertime comes
work's such a bore

with the one you adore
and do the holiday rock

Hi-De-Hi! was a comedy set in the ficticious Maplin holday camp set in the late 1950s. It featured Paul Shane as Ted Bovis, camp host who was always up to different schemes much to the dislike of entertainments manager Geoffrey Fairbrother, an ex-cambridge archaeology professor.
