Announcer: And now, here's Andy Kaufman!

[ Kaufman stands next to a record player, looking nervously at the audience for several seconds, before finally turning the record player on ]

[ Theme From "Mighty Mouse" cartoon begins to play ]

Record:
Mister Trouble never hangs around
When he hears this Mighty sound:


Andy Kaufman: [ raises left arm and lip-synchs: ]
"Here I come to save the day!"

Record:
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

Yes sir, when there is a wrong to right
Mighty Mouse will join the fight.


[ Kaufman starts to lip-synch his part by mistake, then stops himself ]

Record:
On the sea or on the land
He gets the situation well in hand.

So though we are in danger, we never despair
'Cause we know that where there's danger, he is there!
He is there! On the land! On the sea! In the air!

We're not worryin' at all
We're just listenin' for his call:


Andy Kaufman: [ raises left arm and lip-synchs: ]
"Here I come to save the day!"

Record:
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

[ during instrumental break, Kaufman reaches for a glass of water to wet his lips ]

Record:
We're not worryin' at all
We're just listenin' for his call:


Andy Kaufman: [ raises left arm and lip-synchs: ]
"Here I come to save the day!"

Record:
That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

[ Kaufman bows to the audience ]
