    Theme Song Lyrics for The Littlest Hobo

    There's a voice, that keeps on calling me. Down the road, is where I'll always be.

    Every stop I make, I'll make a new friend. Can't stay for long, just turn around and I'm gone again.

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll wanna settle down, Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Down the road, that never seems to end, where new adventure, lies just around the bend.

    So if you wanna join me for a while, just grab your hat, come travel light, that's hobo FORBIDDEN

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down, until tomorrow, the whole world is my home.

    So if you wanna join me for a while, just grab your hat, come travel light, that's hobo FORBIDDEN

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want want to settle down, until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down, until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    There's a world, that's waiting to unfold, a brand new tale, no one has ever told, we've journey'd far but, you know it won't be long, we're almost there and we've paid our fare, with the hobo song.

    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down, until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    So if you wanna join me for a while, just grab your hat, come travel light, that's hobo FORBIDDEN

    Maybe tomorrow I'll find what I call home, until tomorrow, you know I'm free to roam.

    The Littest Hobo Still airs on CTV Saturday mornings at 7:30 ESTmoreless

    CTV (ended 1990)
    This was a sketch comedy show for young adults that was very popular in the 1980s. The series began life as a live variety show in Ottawa, Canada in 1979, which featured comedy sketches, music videos, and call-in contests. After the first season, the series was given a massive retooling and became a videotaped sketch comedy series. Its biggest success came when the series found its way south to the United States and became one of the trademark shows of Nickelodeon, a new cable channel aimed at children, where it aired until 1992. YCDTOTV may be long gone, but one of the shows trademarks, people getting covered in green slime (usually when they said "I don't know?"), has become a Nickelodeon staple.moreless

    CTV (ended 1994)
    E.N.G. (an abbreviation which means Electronic News Gathering) was a primetime Canadian drama that dealt with the personal lives of a group of newscasters and staff in the newsroom of a fictitious Toronto news station. Ann Hildebrandt was the executive producer of the news at station CTLS-TV 10; and she was having a secret affair with Jake Antonelli, the young hotshot cameraman. Her world was rocked with the arrival of Mike Fennell, the new News Director who had eyes for ratings. Their opinions clashed, but they only had the best interests of the station and their co-workers in mind. Among the other characters in CTLS' newsroom were Kyle Copeland, the station manager; Jane Oliver and (age-conscious) Seth Miller were the anchors; Bruce Foreman was a schemer; Marge Atherton was the motherly editor and source of strength for all; JC was an assignment editor; and Dan Watson was an insensitive, smarmy reporter. Some of the episodes were shown on Lifetime Cable network from 1989-1990. The show ran for a couple more years in Canada, until it was cancelled. The show was produced by Alliance Communications Corporation, CTV and Téléfilm Canada.
