12, even though I wasn't the show's biggest fan. My parents mostly liked the show, though at times my Mother really did not like Edith saying, "Here's your beer, Archie." My guess most women in the '70s did not like her doting that way, but that was Edith Bunker. I think that's what I couldn't swallow - the writers and producers made her out to be idiotic.

Not only did I memorize the lyrics from watching the show every week back in the early 70's, but I also bought a stereo LP they released on Atlantic Records featuring highlights of dialogue from the show's first season! It even included the entire theme song, with additional lyrics not played during the show's title sequence. I still have that album today.

Well it's official! When a person can recite the song for "All in the Family", they have filled their life with WAY too much television.
And I mean that only for me.
Don't worry, my friend. We're ALL guilty of watching way too much television. Even those of us who should know better!

12/12 - Funny, a couple of weeks ago my wife and I sang through the theme for giggles. I already knew all the lines. The only line SHE didn't know was the one about the LaSalle.

When I watched a few years ago I saw the destructiveness of Meatheads attitude did to this country. I always felt like most of the baby boomers, my generation, weren't for anything just against everything.

My high school swing choir sang the song as part of our repertoire in the early 70’s.

It seems nobody could understand line 11 until they re-recorded it after several seasons. I thought it sounded like "we are all a sour red grape".

Who else sang Edith's parts the way Jean Stapleton did?
WilliamJorns JLTitus72 13 months ago
And the truth was, Jean Stapleton was really a very good singer! She deliberately sang off-key as part of Edith Bunker's character.
