2 Broke Girls Theme Song

2 Broke Girl$Beth Behrs is cute!

Truth be told, I don’t think this series is gonna last long. I mean, well, it’s a different kind of funny, and it doesn’t appeal to everyone.

Now on to the theme. Although in the opening the tune seems like something randomly pieced together, it’s actually part of a real, full song. The song is called “Second Chance” and is by a Swedish band called Peter Bjorn and John.

Side note: Punctuation error or stylization, the band’s name is somewhat misleading as in reality it’s supposed to be “Peter, Bjorn, and John” — the first names of the three band members. Now, who here thought somewhere in the lines of Peter Bjorn, a solo artist, and someone named John?

The part of “Second Chance” played in the credits and in transitions—the one with the humming—is the main riff of the song and is actually the first thing you hear. That very catchy melody also landed it in the commercial of Bud Light.

“Second Chance” is part of their 2011 release and sixth album Gimme Some. No other official 2 Broke Girls-merchandise, soundtrack or otherwise, contains this song.

I guess the band’s fairly popular. This song is not their claim to fame; they are known more for the 2006 song “Young Folks” which made it in the UK Singles Chart.

Below is the song in all its glory:

Below is the short opening title sequence featuring the theme:

2 Broke Girls theme song lyrics

Not pertinent but here’s the full lyrics anyway.

When you flew out of the nest
You made a mistake
Flew all the way back
When you got back to your den
One minute too late was already wrecked

I, I
It’s a fraction of the hope but it’s hard to control
I, I get this straight

You can’t can’t count on a second chance
The second chance will never be found
You can’t can’t count on a second try
The second try will never come home

You stick to what you knew before
Don’t know what you like
Just made up your mind
The picture still hangs on the wall
From back in the day
When you had it all

I, I
It’s a fraction of the hope but it’s hard to control
I, I get this straight

You can’t can’t count on a second chance
The second chance will never be found
You can’t can’t count on a second try
The second try will never come home

I, I
It’s a fraction of the hope but it’s hard to control
I, I get this straight

You can’t can’t count on a second chance
The second chance will never be found
You can’t can’t count on a second try
The second try will never come home
