The Lyrics to the Theme Song Edit
She was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens, Til her boyfriend kicked her out in one of those crushing scenes. What was she to do, where was she to go She was out on her fanny.
So over the bridge from Flushing to the Sheffield's door, She was there to sell make up but the father saw more, She had style, she had flair, she was there, That's how she became the Nanny.
Who would have guessed that the girl we described was just exactly what the doctor prescribed?
Now, the father finds her beguiling, watch out C.C., The kids are actually smiling, such joie de vivre She's the lady in red when everybody else is wearing tan. The flashy girl from Flushing, the Nanny named Fran.
The nanny named fran
