Episode 8 Preview - Movin' Right Along

The fall means cool weather, red leaves, and new TV shows are right around the corner including a brand new Muppets series.  And what better way to celebrate the reappearance of a delightful franchise than to discuss our favorite classic Muppets song with the rest of the Parry family.

While many songs entered, we can only discuss one and that one is: "Movin' Right Along" from The Muppet Movie (1979)

You can download it on iTunes (whole album only 6 bucks!!), Amazon Music, and Google Play. The iTunes whole album deal is probably your best bet.  There are a number of awesome songs on The Muppet Movie soundtrack including "Rainbow Connection" (not our song this week, but an excellent one to be sure).

And since it wouldn't be a Muppet song without some wacky hijinks, watch the whole tune in context with this clip from the movie before reading the lyrics in preparation for Wednesday.

"Movin' Right Along"

Movin' right along in search of good times and good news,
With good friends you can't lose,
This could become a habit!
Opportunity knocks once let's reach out and grab it (yeah!),
Together we'll nab it,
We'll hitchhike, bus or yellow cab it!
(Cab it?)

Movin' right along.
Footloose and fancy-free.
Getting there is half the fun; come share it with me.
Moving right along (doog-a-doon doog-a-doon).
We'll learn to share the load.
We don't need a map to keep this show on the road.

(Hey, that song is sounding better Fozzie.)

Movin' right along,
We've found a life on the highway.
And your way is my way,
So trust my navigation.

California here we come, the pie-in-the-sky-land.
Palm trees, and warm sand.
Though sadly we just left Rhode Island.
(We did what?!)
(Just forget it.)

Movin' right along (doog-a-doon doog-a-doon).
Hey LA, where've you gone?
Send someone to fetch us, were in Sasketchewan!

Movin' right along (doog-a-doon doog-a-doon).
You take it, you know best.
Hey, I've never seen the sun come up in the West?

Movin' right along.
We're truly birds of a feather,
We're in this together and we know where we're going.
Movie stars with flashy cars and life with the top down.
We're storming the big town,
(Yeah, Storm is right should it be snowing?)
(Uh, no I don't think so...)

Movin' right along,
Do I see signs of men?
Yeah, "welcome" on the same post that says "come back again."
Moving right along, nice town!
Footloose and fancy-free,
You're ready for the big time...
Is it ready for me?

Movin' right along,
Movin' right along,
Movin' right along,
Movin' right along
