  • Song Lyrics:
    Al 'n' Yetta always sit togedda,
    Watching TV every single night.
    Munching popcorn from a dish,
    While observing Dorothy Gish.
    (Dorothy Gish) Dorothy Gish,
    (What a dish) What a dish.
    Ohhhh,

    Al 'n' Yetta couldn't have it betta,
    Their TV set has remote control.
    So they both can stay in bed,
    With Frankenstein and Mister Ed.
    (Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
    (Dorothy Gish) What a dish.
    Ohhhh,

    Al 'n' Yetta, fans of Art Linkletta,
    And they love to sing along with Mitch.
    They just found in TV Guide,
    Reruns of December Bride.
    (December Bride) TV Guide,
    (Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
    (Dorothy Gish) What a dish.
    Ohhhh,

    They're big fans of Gunsmoke and Bonanza,
    And Ben Casey and Doctor Jim Kildare,
    And third reruns of Millionaire,
    And fourth reruns of Yogi Bear.
    (Millionaire) Yogi Bear,
    (December Bride) TV Guide,
    (Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
    (Dorothy Gish) What a dish.
    Ohhhh,

    Al 'n' Yetta love to watch Loretta
    When she enters through her fancy door.
    They just love The Real McCoys,
    Walter Cronkite and The Bowery Boys.
    (Bowery Boys) Real McCoys,
    (Millionaire) Yogi Bear,
    (December Bride) TV Guide,
    (Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
    (Dorothy Gish) What a dish.
    Ohhhh,

    Al got wrinkly, watching Huntley-Brinkley,
    And College Bowl on Sunday afternoons.
    While they both watch Meet The Press,
    Yetta yearns for Elliott Ness.
    (Elliott Ness) Meet The Press,
    (Bowery Boys) Real McCoys,
    (Millionaire) Yogi Bear,
    (December Bride) TV Guide,
    (Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
    (Dorothy Gish) What a dish.
    Ohhhh,

    Al 'n' Yetta watched an operetta.
    Leonard Bernstein told them what they saw.
    They both shouted, "Hail Bernstein!"
    Then they switched to What's My Line.
    (Hail Bernstein) What's My Line,
    (Elliott Ness) Meet The Press,
    (Bowery Boys) Real McCoys,
    (Millionaire) Yogi Bear,
    (December Bride) TV Guide,
    (Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
    (Dorothy Gish) What a dish.
    Ohhhh,

    Al told Yetta something that upsetta.
    He said, "Dear, our picture tube has blown."
    Yetta answered, "Woe is me,
    For tonight we shall not see:
    (Hail Bernstein) What's My Line,
    (Elliott Ness) Meet The Press,
    (Bowery Boys) Real McCoys,
    (Millionaire) Yogi Bear,
    (December Bride) TV Guide,
    (Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
    (Dorothy Gish) What a dish."
    Ohhhh,
