Trivia

There were nine versions of the theme song used; others included a Halloween-themed version not sung by B.J. Thomas or Jennifer Warnes used in a two-part Halloween episode in 1990. A shorter version of the Thomas/Warnes version was used starting in season five.

There was also an a cappella version of the song which was used for all of season six, but this version was abandoned for most of season seven in favor of the reinstatement of Thomas' and Warnes' duet version, although the a cappella theme returned for three episodes as well as the series finale. A full-length version by Thomas and Springfield was released as a single in 1988.

Lyrics

Show me that smile again
Oh, show me that smile
Don't waste another minute on your cryin'
We're nowhere near the end
We're nowhere near
The best is ready to begin

All in a cloudy daze
I look into your eyes and see them shining out
Holding you close this way
Holding you this way
Is like having summer everyday Ooh, ooh

As long as we got each other
We got the world spinnin' right in our hands
Baby, you and me - We gotta be
The luckiest dreamers who never quit dreamin'
As long as we keep on givin'
We can take anything that comes our way
Baby, rain or shine - All the time
We got each other
Sharin' the laughter and love

Promise me here and now
Nothing but jokes
Will never come between us
You can depend on me
'Cause I need you like the air I breathe Oh, oh

As long as we got each other
We got the world spinnin' right in our hands
Baby, you and me - We gotta be
The luckiest dreamers who never quit dreamin'
As long as we keep on givin'
We can take anything that comes our way
Baby, rain or shine - All the time
We got each other
Sharin' the laughter and love

As long as we got each other
We got the world spinnin' right in our hands
Baby, you and me - We gotta be
The luckiest dreamers who never quit dreamin'
As long as we keep on givin'
We can take anything that comes our way
Oh, baby, rain or shine - All the time
We got each other
Sharin' the laughter and love
