These "second verses" were probably on paper, but no one ever heard these when we watched the shows. Geez!

"You got 6 out of 10"
There is no way, no how, these "second verses" were ever heard on their series.
Cheers full song was heard only once, on the two part compilation show for the
200th episode.
You might as well ask for the lyrics to the Bonanza theme song, which was sung by
all 4 Cartwrights at the end of episode one but later deleted.
Just an aside, but the famous scene in "The Bridge On The River Kwai" when the British prisoners march into camp whistling, was because they couldn't sing the "dirty" lyrics. Which was
a wonderful happenstance, as the troops whistling in to the parade ground is one of the
most iconic moments in screen history.

I agree. Can’t get the tune out of my head when I hear it

8/10 by just guessing. Obscure stuff. Don't remember ever hearing any of these second verses before. Next they can quiz about the Lyrics to the M*A*S*H theme or Star Trek the original series. Did Gilligan's Island's theme song have another verse or was that "So join us here each week my friends...."

This was a tough one.
I can’t believe they used the word swank in The Beverly Hillbillies theme song. That’s a new one on me.
Never watched Cheers, Friends, or The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Swank rhymes with bank as in "Next door neighbor's the president of the bank" from #6.

Or ………… “ Granny can sometimes be a crank”. ( just kidding ) ☺️

I didn't exactly perk up on #3, and #9 kicked me even lower.

9/10 Love Cheers and Friends!

Sounds to me like you're a theme song champ!

Fun Fact: There are extra lyrics for the Carol Burnett theme, but they are rarely sung! She did the whole song on the final show! [ "...comes the time we have to say so long!"]!

I had to guess on every single one, but I got a 9/10. TV theme songs must have long versions I've never heard of. .. I missed #5 Swank.
Well, SparkleMotion, I'd say that was some mighty swanky guessin' on your part to get 9/10!
Why thank you IndianaRockz. ... I thought they had made up a word for the quiz. Then when it was the right answer I still thought it was made up to rhyme with bank, but as you probably already knew, it's a word. I can picture Granny gettin riled up if anyone had said her house was "swank". That sounds like fightin words!
