The MST3K Love Theme is the main theme song of Mystery Science Theater 3000 which also summarizes the general concept and backstory behind the show. The lyrics are occasionally altered to reflect changes in the cast or plot, but the song has been present in every season of the show; though some edits to the lyrics are minor, such as What the bots say during the "Robot Roll-call" or the change between Season 1 and the KTMA season of "We'll send him cheesy movies, the worst ever made" to "The worst we can find" and other changes that do not reflect any change in the show's plot.

KTMAJoel
In the not-too-distant future
Next Sunday A.D.
There was a guy named Joel
Not too different than you or me
He worked in a satellite loading bay
Just polishing switches, to pay his way
He did his job well with a cheerful face
But his bosses didn't like him so they shot him into space!
"We'll send him cheesy movies!
The worst ever made!"
Joel says when you've got lemons,
you make lemonade
Now keep in mind he can't control
Where the movies begin or end
Because he used the extra parts
To make his robot friends.
Robot Roll Call
Cambot!
Servo!
Gypsy!
Crow!
If you're wondering how he eats and breathes
And other science facts,
Then repeat to yourself, "It's just a show
I should really just relax"
For Mystery Science Theater 3000!

Robot Roll Call - Season 2-5-0

Joel's intro (Season 2 - 5)

In the not-too-distant future
Next Sunday A.D.
There was a guy named Joel
Not too different from you or me
He worked at Gizmonic Institute
Just another face in a red jumpsuit.
He did a good job cleaning up the place,
But his bosses didn't like him so they shot him into space!
"We'll send him cheesy movies!
The worst we can find! (la la la)
He'll have to sit and watch them all
And we'll monitor his mind!" (la la la)
Now keep in mind Joel can't control
Where the movies begin or end (la la la),
Because he used those special parts
To make his robot friends.
Robot Roll Call (alright let's go)
Cambot! (Pan left!)
Gypsy! (Hi, girl!)
Tom Servo! (What a cool guy!)
Crooooow! (Oh, wisecracker!)
If you're wondering how he eats and breathes
And other science facts (la la la),
Then repeat to yourself, "It's just a show
I should really just relax"
For Mystery Science Theater 3000!

Mike's Intro (Season 5 - 6)

In the not-too-distant future
Way down in Deep 13
Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank
Were hatching an evil scheme!
They hired a temp by the name of Mike
Just a regular joe they didn't like
Their experiment needed a good test case
So they conked him on the noggin and they shot him into space! (Get...me...doooown!)
"We'll send him cheesy movies!
The worst we can find! (la la la)
He'll have to sit and watch them all
And we'll monitor his mind!" (la la la)
Now keep in mind Mike can't control
Where the movies begin or end (la la la).
He'll try to keep his sanity
With the help of his robot friends!
Robot Roll Call
Cambot! (Cover yourself!)
Gypsy! (I'm not ready!)
Tom Servo! (Hello there!)
Crooooow! (That's one "o!")

Then repeat to yourself, "It's just a show
I should really just relax"

In the not-too-distant future
Somewhere in time and space,
Mike Nelson and his robot pals
Are caught in an endless chase!
Pursued by a woman whose name is Pearl,
An evil gal who wants to rule the world.
She threw a few things in her purse
And in her rocketship she hunts him all across the universe! (I'll...get...youuuuuuu!)

The worst I can find! (la la la)
He'll have to sit and watch them all
And I'll monitor his mind! (la la la)

Notes:

  • In the "Turn down your lights" part of the theme, on can hear a very faint version of the theme song playing.
  • An update on the "Bring Back MST3K" Kickstarter project shows a storyboard from a new episode that appears to confirm that the Love Theme will be back for the new season of MST3K. (See the "First Look: The New Opening Sequence!" section on that page.)
