The Lyrics

A tribute to comedian, Red Buttons, who passed away recently at the age of 87
Red Buttons, great comedic style
You gave us laughs and smiles of fun
A plus factor, a great actor
For film, "Sayonara" an Oscar, you won

Clean humor, for the average folks,
Hilarious, the jokes, you'd tell
So funny on Dean Martin Roasts
Kidding guests and hosts
Those "Had No Dinner" toasts,
Red Buttons, farewell...

Awesome! I'm not sure "funny" is an appropriate way to rate this song, so I gave it a five anyway for great choice of words.

As was said by another poster, I'm not sure "funny" applies to this but it's a great eulogy for a great talent. Thank you...!

Good use of such a pretty song. Does anybody remember his recording of "Strange things are happening."?
