This is not for the Ewan McGregor film. This is for the way-cooler 1990s kids television series. Although, where are they all now?
With that out of the way, the theme from Ghostwriter, although barely a song (just simple background music), was still quite catchy and memorable—especially for that timely “Ghostwriter!” line after each character’s opening monologue.
Since the song does not really have lyrics (except maybe for “Ghostwriter!” and “word”), I’ll take this chance to post the complete opening narrative where the characters are describing the nature and whereabouts of Ghostwriter. So, here you go.
Ghostwriter Theme Song Lyrics
We don’t know where he came from.
He just showed up one night.
(What is that thing?)
He’s not an alien.
(What is he?)
We think he might be a ghost.
He wants to be friends with us.
He can’t hear, and he can’t talk.
He can read anything.
He takes letters, and he writes with them.
We’re the only ones who can see him.
That means he wants you on the team.
You have to promise never to tell anybody about Ghostwriter.
We’re the Ghostwriter Team.
We check out clues and solve mysteries.
He’s a ghost, and he writes to us.
(Ghostwriter, what a trip.)
As for the song, I do not know for sure, although IMDb lists Gail King and Peter Wetzler for original music.
