Wonder Woman Theme Song

1975–1979

Ah, Lynda Carter at her finest.

First, let’s get all our facts straight. The Wonder Woman television series lasted 3 seasons. Its first season was in ABC in 1975. It was oficially called The New Original Wonder Woman. This was probably so because there was a television movie made in 1974 (also for ABC) entitled Wonder Woman that starred Cathy Lee Crosby.

Below is the theme song of The New Original Wonder Woman season 1.

Season 2 was not picked up by ABC so the series went to CBS where it was officially titled The New Adventures of Wonder Woman. According to Wikipedia, the theme was re-written to reflect the series’ new present-day setting. In the middle of the season, the song was again changed to an instrumental version.

Below is the non-instrumental first version of season two’s theme, shown with the original opening sequence.

Below is the instrumental (semi-instrumental actually) second version of season two’s theme, again shown with the original opening sequence.

Now on to season 3. Again according to Wikipedia, the theme was once again reworked, this time to a disco beat (ah, the late 70s). According however to the YouTube dude we’ve been stealing our videos from, season 3 also had 2 versions of the theme songs (not sure about the difference though, I’m tired, maybe you can point it out for me).

Below is the first version of the season 3 theme song, again with original title sequence.

Now for version 2 of season 3.

Wonder Woman theme song lyrics

Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman

All the world is waiting for you
and the power you possess
In your satin tights
fighting for your rights
And the old red white and blue

Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman

Now the world is ready for you
and the wonders you can do
Make a hawk a dove
stop a war with love
Make a liar tell the truth

Wonder Woman
Get us out from under, Wonder Woman

All our hopes are pinned upon you
and the magic that you do
Stop a bullet cold
make the axis fold
change their minds and change the world

Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman

You’re a wonder, Wonder Woman
