Females: It’s time to play the music
It’s time to light the lights
It’s time to meet the Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight.

Males: It’s time to put on makeup
It’s time to dress up right
It’s time to raise the curtain on the Muppet Show tonight.

Waldorf: Why do we always come here
Statler: I guess we’ll never know
Waldorf: It’s like a kind of torture
both: To have to watch the show

(brief interlude)

Muppets: And now let’s get things started
Audience: Why don’t you get things started
Kermit: It’s time to get things started
Muppets: on the most sensational inspirational celebrational Muppetational
this is what we call the Muppet Show!
