The Lyrics

Comic actor, Don Knotts, dies at age 81
He made the Andy Griffith Show sublime
The funny way he had of fighting crime
His antics kept us laughing all the time
We loved him lots
So Long, Don Knotts

He started way back on the old Steve Allen Show
As that thin and shaky nervous guy, you know
For all our laughter, one huge debt we owe
We loved him lots
So Long, Don Knotts

As sure as night is dark and day is light
He lit up TV when he came in sight
Ralph Furley on "Three's Company" was right
We loved him lots
So Long, Don Knotts

The Barney Fife he played was number one
Frustration he would show was so much fun
He only had one bullet for his gun
And took no shots
So Long Don Knotts..

So Long Don Knotts...

Nice tribute. Ralph Furley was my favorite because of the way he let Jack put one over on him.

Nice tribute. I prefer to think of Don as the newest cast member of Mayberry R.I.P.
