Remember this classic theme?


Good Times
Any time you meet a payment
Good Times
Any time you need a friend
Good Times
Any time you're out from under
Not gettin' hassled, not gettin' hustled
Keepin' your head above water
Makin' a wave when you can
Temporary lay-offs
Good Times
Easy credit rip-offs
Good Times
Scratchin' and survivin'
Good Times
Hangin' in a jury
Good Times
Aint we lucky we got 'em
Good Times
