The Captain has returned. You know, it’s interesting that the Rangers chose to include the theme song to Welcome Back Kotter in the Messier video retrospective. As soon as I heard the words, I was laughing hard enough to make my co-workers gather around to see what hi-jinks I was up to this time.
“Welcome back, your dreams were your ticket out.
Welcome back, to that same old place that you laughed about.
Well, the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they’re turned around.
Who’d have thought they’d lead ya here where we need ya?
Yeah, we tease him a lot ’cause we’ve got him on the spot,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back, welcome back, welcome back”
For those of you who know the story, we have a song rife with meaning here. Hilarious!
