“Green Acres Theme” (1965)
Husband (Eddie Albert): Fresh air!
Wife (Eva Gabor): Times Square!

Who can forget that classic theme song (1965) to the television situation comedy Green Acres? The show itself was pretty awful. Only the theme song was memorable.

Can a city glamour gal like Gabor survive life in the country? The premise was ripped off for the Paris Hilton television show Simple Life.

Here's more of Eva Gabor's lines from that song.

New York is where I'd rather stay.
I get allergic smelling hay.
I just adore a penthouse view.
Dah-ling I love you but give me Park Avenue.
