Lyrics

1981-1983 Theme:

Music by Bob Christianson
Lyrics by Bob Garrett and Marley Sims
Performed by Nell Carter

Gimme A Break, I sure deserve it.
It's time I made it to the top.
Gimme A Break, I'm looking forward,
Get behind me, pull out every stop.

I want a happy ending, I'm tired of pretending,
Won't let 'em get the best of me.
Whoa whoa whoa,

Gimme A Break! The game is survival!
Gimme A Break, and plan my arrival!
Gimme A Break for heaven's sake!
What happened to my piece of the cake?

Gimme A Break!
Gimme A Break!
Oh Gimme A Break!
Gimme A Break!
Hey Gimme A Break!


1983-1987 Theme:

Music by Jay Graydon
Lyrics by Richard Page
Performed by Nell Carter

Gimme A Break, now I know what it takes.
I'm putting a new face on the old one
Ready for anything.

Playing with fate, not a moment too late.
I'm showing the whole world
Nothing can get me down.
Woo woo hoo!

Gimme A Break,
Yeah yeah!
Gimme A Break
'Cause I sure need one!

Gimme A Break,
Yeah yeah!
I finally know where I belong.

Gimme A Break,
Yeah yeah!
Gimme A Break
'Cause I sure need one!

Gimme A Break,
Yeah yeah!
I finally know where I belong.
Gimme A Break!
