Men of a Certain Age is a hilarious, semi-new, semi-comedy on TNT. Hilarious, yes, why shouldn’t it be, it is created by and stars Ray Romano. Semi-new, yes, because the second season actually just premiered a couple of days ago. And semi-comedy, yes, because this is one of those new age comedy-drama “dramedys.”
The theme song used in the opening is really, really dead-on for what the show is about. The song is “When I Grow Up (To Be a Man)” popularized by The Beach Boys. The song is originally part of their album Today! released in 1965. The song is credited (composers) to The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson and Mike Love.
Below is said theme song and opening credits. See below for lyrics.
Men of a Certain Age theme song lyrics
This is the show edit. The part used is actually just the first verse of the song.
When I grow up to be a man
Will I dig the same things that turn me on as a kid?
Will I look back and say that I wish I hadn’t done what I did?
Will I joke around and still dig those sounds
When I grow up to be a man?
