  • A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
    And no one can talk to a horse of course
    That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mr. Ed.

    Go right to the source and ask the horse
    He'll give you the answer that you'll endorse.
    He's always on a steady course.
    Talk to Mr. Ed.

    People yakkity yak a streak and waste your time of day
    But Mister Ed will never speak unless he has something to say.

    A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
    And this one'll talk 'til his voice is hoarse.
    You never heard of a talking horse?

    Well listen to this.

    I am Mister Ed. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Howard Luloff from St. Louis Park, MnOne of the most memorable theme songs of all time. The original version of the Mister Ed theme was recorded in Italy by an opera singer. Unfortunately, it was so bad that Arthur Lubin, who produced and created the show was looking for a new theme song. However, Jay Livingston, who co-wrote the classic theme with his partner Ray Evans recorded his own version and it would stay on the air for the remainder of the show's run and reruns thereafter.

    I always enjoyed hearing the song whenever I watched Mister Ed. It was a very catchy theme that told us "A horse is a horse of course of course."
