The Lyrics

This isn't a parody, per se. More of a tribute. Gary Coleman died today, so I figured I would write a song in his memory.
Let me tell you a sad story
A child star died this past Friday
It's Gary Coleman
Yeah, Gary Coleman.

Became famous when he was small,
The boy on Diff'rent Strokes, that's all.
It's Gary Coleman
Yeah, Gary Coleman.

I came home from school, logged on Facebook
I checked my newsfeed, I took a look
My best friend told me, the news was bad
Gary Coleman passed, how very sad

It's Gary Coleman
Yeah, Gary Coleman.
He asked "What choo talkin bout Willis?"
His character you couldn't diss
It's Gary Coleman
Yeah, Gary Coleman.

Now why did Gary have to die?
Godspeed to such a talented lil' guy
It's Gary Coleman
Yeah, Gary Coleman.
And all I can really say is R.I.P

He was a survivor who experienced many brushes with death...after all, the theme from Different Strokes was written by Alan Thicke! (Good job, carly) ;D
