    Theme Song:

    It's a grand life. It's a grand life.
    It's a warm lump of coal in your hand life.
    It's a fairy tale land life.

    There's never any reason to wander very far.
    We're lucky to have landed where we are.

    It's a grand life. It's a grand life.
    It's almost more than you can stand life.
    Strike up the band. It's a grand life.
