    Lyrics to the theme songs:


  • Theme song lyrics by Alan Thicke, Gloria Loring, and Al Burton - sung by Gloria Loring

  • Three different opening themes: 1st season, seasons 2-6, and seasons 7-9


    Season 1 opening theme (parts sung by Charlotte Rae)

    There's a place you've got to go for learning
    all you want to know about the facts of life
    the facts of life.

    When books are what you're there about
    and looks are what you care about
    the time is right,
    to learn the facts of life.

    When the world never seems
    to be living up to your dreams
    it's time you started finding out
    what everything is all about

    When the boys you used to hate you date,
    I guess you best investigate
    the facts of life you gotta get'em right
    the facts of life,
    the facts of life,
    the facts of life


    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 you learning the facts of life
    learning the facts of life,
    learning the facts of life


    Season 2-6 ending theme

    You'll avoid a lot of damages
    an 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
