RIP Bea Arthur.

She looked great just three months ago – here’s the theme being sung while she looks on:

Maude Theme Lyrics

And Then There’s Maude by Dave Grusin and Andrew Bergman – Maude Lyrics

Lady Godiva was a freedom rider

She didnt’ care if the whole world looked.

Joan of Arc with the Lord to guide her

She was a sister who really cooked.

Isadora was the first bra burner

And you’re glad she showed up. (Oh yeah)

And when the country was falling apart

Betsy Ross got it all sewed up.

And then there’s Maude.

And then there’s Maude.

And then there’s Maude.

And then there’s Maude.

And then there’s Maude.

And then there’s Maude.

And then there’s

That old compromisin’, enterprisin’, anything but tranquilizing,

Right on Maude.

    So sad. I loved the Golden Girls.

    Shalom Jill,

    I missed this line in the theme song:

    Joan of Arc with the Lord to guide her/She was a sister who really cooked.

    Groan.

    I wonder how that one got past the censors.

    B’shalom,

    Jeff
