I Love Lucy Theme Song

"I Love Lucy" by Harold Adamson and Eliot Daniel

"I love Lucy and she loves me
We're as happy as two can be
Sometimes we quarrel but then
How we love making up again
Lucy kisses like no one can
She's my Mrs. and I'm her man
And life is heaven you see
'Cause I love Lucy
Yes I love Lucy
And Lucy loves me! "

I Love Lucy Tidbits

Lucille Ball was a pathfinder who paved the way for all the women in TV to follow. Without Lucy, arguably, there might not have been a Carol Burnett or Mary Tyler Moore.

She proved women could be the leads and carry a show. Not one show, but several.

She was the first female head of a studio. While running Desilu, her willingness to take a risk lead her to approve production of Mission Impossible and Star Trek. That's right, without Lucille Ball, no Captain Kirk.

She was a woman who didn't mind looking funny, as long as she WAS funny.

None of which takes away from Desi Arnaz's estimable talents as a producer. His "can do" attitude made the "I Love Lucy Show" work. He innovated the three camera filming format still in use today. Previously, shows like this were performed before a live audience and preserved on kinescope which makes poor copies. Desi's filiming of Lucy is the reason there are great copies today.

For the "I Love Lucy Show" the casting of William Frawley and the then unknown Vivian Vance was sheer genius. Although Vance was often unhappy to be playing the frumpy wife of a man who was 22 years her senior, she would stick with Lucille Ball into the "Lucille Ball Show" and "Here's Lucy."

William Frawley died in 1966 of a heart attack, Vivian Vance in 1979 of breast and bone cancer, Desi Arnaz in 1986 of lung cancer, and Lucille Ball in 1989 of an acute rupture of the abdominal aorta.

Lucille Ball's second husband, Gary Morton, died in 1999 of lung cancer.
