Guys Are Using The ‘King of Queens’ Theme Song As A Love Poem, and the Reactions Are Priceless
This is absolutely hilarious.
King of Queens wrapped its final season just over a decade ago, but mentions of Kevin James’ classic sitcom have recently surged online thanks to a hysterical new texting trend.
Enterprising dudes have been slyly passing the lyrics to the show’s theme song, “Baby All My Life I Will Be Driving Home to You” by Billy Vera and the Beaters, off as a personal love poem to their girlfriends.
Reactions, while varied, are absolutely hilarious across the board.
Comedian Mike Recine is credited with pulling the ingenious prank first.
I told my girlfriend I wrote her a poem but it was just the theme song to King of Queens. pic.twitter.com/2B1H6n7XtX

Less than 24 hours after Recine tweeted the screen grab, other dudes eagerly tried the trick out on their significant others. Many were rewarded with an “I love you”, a heart emoji, kissing emoji, or combination of the three.
Others were less successful, as their wholly unimpressed girlfriends immediately recognized the lyrics as the sitcom’s theme song.
Even if they didn’t make the connection, that didn’t ensure the hopelessly cheesy lyrics were well-received.

If you are dying to try this “poem” out on your partner, do it now before the viral trend becomes too well-known to replicate.
Or, you could just pick another love song to plagiarize. There’s definitely an overabundance of bad ballads to choose from.
