The Lyrics

Gary Coleman, who played Arnold in "Different Strokes" dies of a brain hemorrage at age 42.
Goodbye to Gary C.,
Who passed prematurely
In "Diff'rent Strokes"
He pleased the folks,
But lately, it seems, he was ailin'

So long to Gary C.,
Knew much controversy
Wed a young wife,
But still knew strife,
While starring in life, he kept failin' loved him so
Sky high..lived childhood dreams
Then like many young stars,
Real life scared him, it seems

Sleep well, dear Gary C.,
At last, now you are free
No more sad times,
Or ragged climbs,
Through eternity, there's smooth sailin'

Through eternity, it's smooth sailin'

Great tribute to Gary C. I grew up with Different Strokes and idolized him at the time! So sad that his life is cut short, though he'd been sick for a very long time.

Gary Coleman was definitely great on Diff'rent Strokes. It's a shame he had such a troubled life afterwards. Hopefully, he's at peace now. Great tribute. 5's.

Appropriate tribute, but is he resting in peace as his funeral gets delayed because of family disagreements?
