Look Away is the main title theme to the television series A Series of Unfortunate Events. It was written by composer Nick Urata featuring lyrics by Daniel Handler. The song is performed by Neil Patrick Harris. The middle portion of the lyrics changes depending on which book is being portrayed in the following episode. In every second part of each book adaptation, Harris sings the song in character depending on the disguise Count Olaf appears in during the episode.

Every single episode is nothing but dismay
So look away, look away, look away

But how a descent person like yourself would even want to view it

And so if I were you, I wouldn't even watch one minute further

The lumber mill is where the Baudelaires are forced to work
The eye doctor is sinister, the owner is a jerk

The very thought of watching should be met with skepticism
Just look away, look away, look away
There's nothing but horror and inconvenience on the way
Ask any stable person "should I watch?" and they will say
Look away, look away, look away,
Look away, look away, look away,
Look away, look away, look away
