OK, I promised I'd ask.

My wife has a song going through her head. She thinks it's from her childhood in the late 1950's, maybe from children's television. The part she remembers is:
    It's about time
    It's about space
    It's about life in a beautiful place


Anybody remember it?

Well....I didn't really think anybody would admit to knowing this...

Here is a text of the It's About Time theme song
(Both versions):

It's about time, it's about space,
About two men in the strangest place.
It's about time, it's about flight -
Traveling faster than the speed of light.
This is the tale of the brave crew
As through the barrier of time they flew.
Past a fighting minuteman,
Past an armored knight,
Past a Roman warrior,
To this ancient site.
It's about caves,cavemen too,
About a time when the earth was new.
Wait'll they see what is in sight!
Is it good luck or is it good night?
It's about two astronauts, it's about their fate,
It's about a woman and her prehistoric mate.

It's about time, it's about space,
About two men in the strangest place.
They will be here right on this spot
No matter if they like it or not.
How will they live in this primitive state?
Will help ever come before it is too late?
Will they ever get away? Watch each week and see!
Will they be returning to the 20th Century?
It's about time for our goodbyes
To all these prehistoric gals and guys. IT'S ABOUT TIME!

When the show's concept changed mid-season and the cave people moved to 20th century New York, the theme song changed as well:

It's about time, it's about space,
About cave-people in the strangest place.
It's about time, it's about flight-
Traveling faster than the speed of light.
About cave-people and the brave crew
As through the barrier of time they flew.
Past a Roman warrior, past an armored knight,
Past a fighting minuteman to this modern site.
It's about time for you and me
To meet these people from 1,000,000 BC.
It's about two astronauts and how they educate
A prehistoric woman and her prehistoric mate.

It's about time, it's about space,
About cave-people in the strangest place.

They will be here with all of us,
dodging a taxi, car or bus.
Where will they go? What will they do
In this strange place where everything is new?
Will they manage to survive? Watch each week and see.
Will they get accustomed to the 20th Century?
It's about time for our goodbyes
To all these prehistoric gals and guys. IT'S ABOUT TIME!

Try this. It provides access to the theme song about halfway down the page.
