The Lyrics

Tribute for comic, Phyllis Diller, who passed away yesterday
Goodbye Phyllis, oh, goodbye Phyllis,
We were sad to hear that you had passed away
Great jokes you'd tell, Phyllis, they were swell, Phyllis
You were grand, and in demand - back in your stand-up day

You kept the crowds laughin' - made fun times happen
With your brash and unique routine way back then
For you, we'd clap, Phyllis, our funny bones you'd tap, Phyllis
Phyllis, there'll be no one like you, again

So long, Phyllis, you lived long, Phyllis
Heard on the news that you were ninety-five
Love your style, Phyllis, you made us smile, Phyllis
For a pace lift, had a face lift, gave you beauty drive..

You'd keep the folks yakkin' - clever jokes crackin'
Opened doors for lady comics, where you'd been
You were superb, Phyllis - always knew how to thrill us
Too bad you had to go away - but films and tv shows, we'll play
This way you'll always make our day, again

Phyllis, you'll always make our day, again

A touching tribute, AFW. Another talent lost to us.

A truly funny lady. Laughter was the secret to her long life.

Right on time AFW-555! Just read about her death in this morning's paper. I thought she would live to be 100 (pretty close)...

Drat - Michael beat me to a Fang comment. Nice tribute AFW. We dropped Diller's name in a parody once. Extra credit to anyone...oh never mind. ;)
