The Golden Girls theme song lyrics (show edit)

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
your heart is true you’re a pal and a confidant

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
You would see, the biggest gift would be for me
and the card attached would say,
Thank you for being a friend

Watch & listen

    For the longest time, I thought the lyrics for the line “the card attached would say…” was “the heart attack would say…” That never made any sense. Now I know why!
