Do you know the lyrics to The Andy Griffith Show theme song?

You can whistle it...but do you know the words?

The Andy Griffith Show theme song is possibly one of the most iconic themes ever. Even humming the tune can get that whistling stuck in your head for hours.

But this quiz is for the fans who really know their TAGS trivia...the ones who know about the lyrics! We've written about the lyrics behind the theme a few times, even with Andy Griffith himself singing them.

But how well do you know this rarely-heard full theme?

Watch The Andy Griffith Show on MeTV!

Weeknights at 8 PM & 8:30 PM

Thanks for playing it was fun. Oh don't forget your hockey sticks

Oh almost forgot. So far I have not found any movies that have not ran. Also VLC takes MPv and Mkv also. Since I have only tried 50 of them and have 510 more more to go I am sure there will be. Both stay tuned to the movie I am giving out later tonight
LoveMETV22 texasluva 1 month ago
Thank You. Yeah I haven't figured out anything on the VLC thing. They open in the browser(which is fine) I tried giving VLC priority over WMP(no change there). There's probably many settings I haven't tried But it could be my operating system, Windows version, browser, or etc.... They all run in the browser so there isn't anything that won't run, just it won't run in VLC. Greaat quiz last night, I was being humorous( or I thought on the hockey sticks, you"ve never heard it referred to that way? Glad if you got a chucle from it LoL

1408 yes your movie is 1408. Beware of Room 1408. It has been blocked off by the hotel for years. Something about things happening in that room long ago. The question is are you ready to check out 1408? Do you have the nerve to debunk these stories. Someone does and aims to prove it. You can watch as he tries. Good luck.

1408 (2007) 1 hr 50 min- Fantasy, Horror, Mystery
Director: Mikael Håfström
Cast:
John Cusack
Samuel L. Jackson
Mary McCormack
Tony Shalhoub

I thought this quiz was about the Andy Griffith theme song. When did it get so off track?
texasluva Snickers 1 month ago
It was. A quiz 3 weeks ago. When posters stopped coming to take quiz (99%) two weeks later it was a get together for posters. Only 3 posters took this quiz in the last 12 days. You may if wish to come to the get together.

Movie Quiz 08/13/2021

Yes this is a Adventure, War movie. Though it takes place during a war it's not per say bombing and all out war between countries. This is more about survival, hatred, biases and planning your next attack vs your adversary who has the same intentions towards you. The problem being you either work together in trust or you end up destroying one another. These actors are the best of both worlds and now you watch as they attempt bury one another with the indoctrination that has been put into their blood by those who trained them. A solid over 7.3 movie that will grab your attention. Both of these actors are stars in their own right for many decades. Give us a name for this movie so we can all can watch. Adventure, War....

He books the room begging to get into it. It took a lot of talking to Samuel L. Jackson (I think he is the owner or person who books rooms) After telling him no a dozen times he relents. Cusack goes into the room alone but things later change. Something sinister .

Congrats on your quiz win Friday night. Looks like it was a good one too. I guess you & Lovemetv2 tied for it. Maybe see you at the next one!

We wondered where you and Mrs. Moody go to. LoveMETV and myself were the only two. I did not guess it. I’ve never even heard of it.

11 out of 14, which ain't bad seeing how I never even knew there was words to that tune....at least, that's what I'm telling myself...😑
