Does anyone know what the lyrics are to the theme tune of the BBC1 drama "New Tricks", or where I can find them? The BBC website does not have them.

I don't know I'm afraid - but do you think it is a condition written into all Denis Waterman's contracts that he HAS to sing the theme song to any programme he appears in?

It would appear that he likes to "write the feem toon, sing the feem toon."!!!
El groucho you are too quick for me I wanted to say that.
If you record the programme on video next week,youcan play it back as often as you like and write the words down as you go.

OK, I think I have most of them.

"It's alright, it's OK, doesn't really matter if you're old and grey".

"It's alright, it's OK, listen to what I say."

"It's alright, doing fine, doesn't really matter if the sun don't shine.

"It's alright, it's OK, make it the end of the day."

Then there's another bit at the end but I can't remember it.

Not exaxtly "Grammy" winning stuff is it!

I managed to get the short opening theme OK but as I was recording the closing theme the presenter cut in announcing details of the next programme.Annoying to say the least.

The BBC are putting the series out on DVD but I bet the presenter's comments will still be there.

The theme tune is not commercially available according to the BBC site.

I got the last bit, here it is...

"Hi-tech, low-tech take your pick,

you can't teach an old dog a brand new trick.

I don't care what anybody says."

Absolute genius I'm sure you all agree.

I just wondered,If I recordede New Tricks on my DVD Recoder,I can then play it on my laptop,is there anyway that I can then copy Just the song ( is that called sampling?) and maybe make it into MP3?



Thanks

You probably have it by now, but the end has one more line:

I dont care what everybody says...

it's alright, it's okay
doesn't really matter if your old and grey
it's alright I say it's okay
listen to what I say
it's alright doing fine
doesn't really matter if the sun dont shine

At the end of the day (this line is sung by backing singers)
There's a place that I cant find
a drink or two to ease my mind.
