Reading Rainbow Music Needed

Searching for a song filter: looking for a song that played on Reading Rainbow in 1988.

I'm looking for a way to listen to 'the pasta song' from Reading Rainbow: The Robbery at the Diamond Dog Diner. I'm not picky as to how-if it's available streaming somewhere or if I can buy it on cassette. I've been looking for a few hours with no luck, so any help would be appreciated!

Is this it? I mean, it's called "The Pasta Song," but I don't know for sure it's the same one that was on the show.

Oops. cerebus19 beat me to it. Different links, but same song.

Is this it? It's certainly not the original, but are the lyrics the same?

Ten minutes! Nuts.

Response by poster: ....close, but not quite. It has a similar tune and instruments, the Reading Rainbow version has a single baritone. These might be the same lyrics.

Scroll down to #49

Video Clip for this episode leads to a real media file.

3:47 to 4:22 is what you might be looking for (no singing, just the tune).
