Why is it that whenever I mention Three's Company to someone, they feel absolutely obliged to sing the first line of the theme song? When someone wants to talk to me about Lost, I don't make that "woooosh" sound.

Granted, Lost doesn't have a catchy theme song, but there's LOTS of shows (especially old sitcoms) that do, and no one sings THOSE songs when I mention those shows.
Like Friends. To this day I still think that show has one of the catchiest theme songs I have ever heard, but no one ever feels the need to go, "So no one told you life was gonna be this way! CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP" if I mention Friends. No one starts singing the theme to All in The Family, which may not be catchy, but is very well-known. Or Family Guy, which is a direct parody of that.

So why Three's Company? And why can no one sing past the first line? "Come on knock on our door..." and they end there. Is this because they think to themselves "that's enough" and are politely waiting to hear what exactly it is I have to say about Three's Company? Or is it because no one knows the lyrics past the first line? (This is NOT an invitation to google the lyrics and post them here, lol)

Can someone explain this to me? I've been wondering for YEARS now!

For the record, it's an awful song.
