Chico and the Man

 

Chico and the Man” is one of my favorite TV theme songs. I remember watching the show when I was growing up, but I couldn’t tell you anything about the episodes that I watched.

Chico and the Man is an American sitcom which ran on NBC for four seasons, from September 13, 1974, to July 21, 1978. It stars Jack Albertson as Ed Brown (the Man), the cantankerous owner of a run down garage in an East Los Angeles barrio, and (until his suicide late in the third season) Freddie Prinze as Chico Rodriguez, an upbeat, optimistic Chicano young man who comes in looking for a job. It was the first U.S. television series set in a Mexican-American neighborhood. (from Wikipedia.com)

But, the theme song, I know all of the words to that song.

 

 

And in case you don’t remember the words of the song, here they are.

Chico And The Man” by Jose Feliciano

Chico, don’t be discouraged,
The Man he ain’t so hard to understand.
Chico, if you try now,
I know that you can lend a helping hand.

Because there’s good in everyone
And a new day has begun
You can see the morning sun if you try.

And I know, things will be better
Oh yes they will for Chico and the Man
Yes they will for Chico and the Man.

Side Note:

When I was looking for information on the TV show, there was a list of Notable Stars that was on Wikipedia.com. There were a lot of “guest stars” that made an appearance on the TV show,
