The Drew Carey Show is a sitcom that aired on ABC from 1995 to 2004 set in Cleveland, Ohio, and revolved around the retail office and home life of "everyman" Drew Carey, a fictionalized version of the actor.
The Drew Carey Show was a fun sitcom from 1995-2004 starring stand-up comic Drew Carey and other comedians/actors. Drew is a working-class guy whose thankless job is to hire people for the Cleveland department store Winfred-Louder, where the bosses are crazy and the employees treated like dirt. Making Drew's daily life hell is Mimi Bobeck, the boss' secretary, whose desk is near Drew's. The jokes they play on each other is like an art form. On his off-hours, Drew likes to drink beer with his friends Kate, Lewis and Oswald. The show took many twists and turns in the show's 9 years on the air, but the most important thing remained: the laughs!

Theme Song Lyrics & Opening Credits


"Moon Over Parma" (1995–1996, 2002–2004)
Moon over Parma, bring my love to me tonight.
Guide her to Cleveland, underneath your silvery light.
We're going bowlin'
So don't loose her in Solon.
Moon over Parma, tonight!

"Five O'Clock World" by The Vogues (1996–1997, 2002–2004)

"Cleveland Rocks" by The Presidents of the United States of America (1997–2004)
All this energy calling me,
Back where it comes from
It's such a crude attitude
It's back where it belongs.
All the little chicks with the crimson lips
Go, "Cleveland Rocks"
"Cleveland Rocks"
Livin' in sin, with a safety pin
Go, "Cleveland Rocks" (Cleveland Rocks)
"Cleveland Rocks" (Cleveland Rocks)
