Theme Song Thursday: McKinney, Where Everybody Knows Your Name

21 Mar

You know what I love about living in McKinney, Texas? Well, just about everything. I’m not extremely fond of the summer heat that can get into triple digits, but that’s what air conditioning is for. Right? That’s it. I love all the rest. The people are great, the economy is thriving, and there are so many things to do and places to go. There are great restaurants, wonderful shops, and fun activities. From the day we moved here in ’04, McKinney has been a Shangri-La. I’ve made hundreds of friends here, and when I take a stroll on the Square, I bump into dozens of people who say, “Hi, Toni! How’s it going?” It’s kinda like CHEERS. “Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, And they’re always glad you came…”

Recently, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Stuart Pearlman of Town Square Buzz about why I love my town and all the things I’m involved in. We didn’t even get into my tennis teams, neighborhood activities, and art groups. We would have needed a 5 hour mini-series. I like to call it my 5 minutes of fame.

Cheers – Themesong lyrics

Making your way in the world today
Takes everything you’ve got;
Taking a break from all your worries
Sure would help a lot.
Wouldn’t you like to get away?

All those night when you’ve got no lights,
The check is in the mail;
And your little angel
Hung the cat up by it’s tail;
And your third fiance didn’t show;

Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
And they’re always glad you came;
You want to be where you can see,
Our troubles are all the same;
You want to be where everybody knows your name.

Roll out of bed, Mr. Coffee’s dead;
The morning’s looking bright;
And your shrink ran off to Europe,
And didn’t even write;
And your husband wants to be a girl;

Be glad there’s one place in the world
Where everybody knows your name,
And they’re always glad you came;
You want to go where people know,
People are all the same;
You want to go where everybody knows your name.

Where everybody knows your name,
And they’re always glad you came;
Where everybody knows your name,
And they’re always glad you came.
