Opening theme song lyrics

Come on everybody! Let's join Yogi's Gang!

We're on a trip with a wagon ship, we'll have a blarg, on Yogi's Ark!

Look down there Yogi, it's Mr. Smog!

Okey Doke, let's fix his smoke.

That's one solution, to stop pollution!

Hey Yogi, it's Lotta Litter.

Hey-hey-hey, we'll have to take care of her someway.


Uh oh, it's the Prankster, and the Greedy Genie, at three o'clock.

Hey-hey-hey, let's fix their clock!

If those McGoons were outta the way!

The world would be so bright and gay.

Let's try to keep it just that way, hey-hey-heyyy!

It's up to you and meeee!

It's up you.
And you!
And you!

It's up to you and me!

Hey-hey-hey, it's Yogi's Gang!
