The King of Queens

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

The King of Queens, 1998-2007
Doug (Kevin James) & Carrie (Leah Remini) Heffernan lived in Queens, NY. Doug drove an International Parcel Service (IPS) delivery van, while Carrie worked as a secretary. Arthur (her father) lived in the basement of their house, & was a curmudgeon, constantly bickering with Doug. Carrie hired a dog walker to take Arthur (& dogs) to the park.
Doug & Carrie had lots of friends in the show. There were crossover shows with Ray Romero (Everybody Loves Raymond) & Kevin James, as they were supposed to be friends, too.




Baby All My Life, Billy Vera, 1999



My eyes are gettin' weary, My back is gettin' tight, I'm sitting here in traffic, on the Queensborough bridge tonight, but I don't care cuz all I wanna do, is cash my check and drive right home to you, cuz baby all my life I will be driving home to you.

The real theme song is too short, so here’s one about a pickup man.


Pickup Man, Joe Diffie, 1994




Well, I got my first truck when I was three
Drove a hundred thousand miles on my knees
I hauled marbles and rocks and thought twice before
I hauled a Barbie doll bed for the girl next door
She tried to pay me with a kiss and I began to understand
There's something women like about a pickup man


(No sex. No food.
If the cable goes out,
I’m gonna have to kill myself.)

When I turned sixteen I saved a few hundred bucks
My first car was a pickup truck
I was cruisin' the town and the first girl I see
Is Bobbie Joe Gentry, the homecoming queen
She flagged me down and climbed up in the cab
And said "I never knew you were a pickup man!"



You can set my truck on fire and roll it down a hill
And I still wouldn't trade it for a Coupe de Ville
I've got an eight-foot bed that never has to be made
You know if it weren't for trucks we wouldn't have tailgates
I met all my wives in traffic jams
There's just something women like about a pickup man



Most Friday nights I can be found
In the bed of my truck on an old chaisse lounge
Backed into my spot at the drive-in show
You know a cargo light gives off a romantic glow
I never have to wait in line at the popcorn stand
Cuz there's something women like about a pickup man



You can set my truck on fire and roll it down a hill
And I still wouldn't trade it for a Coupe de Ville
I've got an eight-foot bed that never has to be made
You know if it weren't for trucks we wouldn't have tailgates
I met all my wives in traffic jams
There's just something women like about a pickup man

I met all my wives in traffic jams

Yes there's something women like about a pickup man
