Round The Twist | Theme Song with Lyrics | The Splat | #TBT | Nickelodeon UK

Have you ever, ever felt like this? Have strange things happened, are you going round the twist?:

Watch the opening and closing titles to the popular Australian comedy series Round The Twist (plus a few outtakes) below!



Round the Twist opening titles lyrics:

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Have strange things happened,
Are you going round the twist?

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Have strange things happened,
Are you going round the twist?

Well, have you heard the word,
About the bird and the spider.
That wiggled and wriggled
And giggled inside her?

Well, have you ever, ever felt like this?
Have strange things happened,
Are you going round the twist?

Have you ever, ever felt like this?

Round the Twist closing titles lyrics:

Have you ever, ever felt like this?

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Have strange things happened,
Are you going round the twist?

If all the king's horses
And all the king's men,
Couldn't put me back together again.
I'd say...

Rain, rain, go away,
Come again another day.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Have strange things happened,
Are you going round the twist?

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Have strange things happened,
Are you going round the twist?

Rain, rain, go away,
Come again another day.

I can hear myself say,
This is not my day.
I'm saying what the hey,
You won't believe me anyway!

I can hear myself say,
This is not my day.
I'm saying what the hey,
You won't believe me anyway!

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
(Rain, rain, go away, come again another day.)
Have strange things happened,
Are you going round the twist?

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
(Rain, rain, go away, come again another day.)
Have strange things happened,
Are you going round the twist?

About Round The Twist:


Round The Twist is an Australian children's comedy produced by the Australian Children's Television Foundation and based around the Twist family and the supernatural goings-on in their town. The Twist family are widower Tony Twist and his three children, twins Pete and Linda, and Bronson. They live in the old, and usually haunted, lighthouse at Port Niranda. The show ran for 52 episodes over four series (seasons) between 1989 to 2000 (series one in 1989; series two in 1992; series three in 1999; series four in 2000), with many cast changes along the way. Each episode is a self-contained, supernatural story, but there are central story themes hinted at in each episode throughout a series, culminating in a story that explains them. The first two series were based on short stories by the author Paul Jennings, with adaptations by Esben Storm (a cast member and the director). After Paul Jennings left, Esben Storm took over writing for series 3 and 4. The Queen of the UK visited the set of Round the Twist in the early 1990's.
