The Lyrics

We loved this guy and laughed along, as long as he was alive. Rest in peace, O funny man, 1924-2005. (And, yes, his mama really did name him Nipsey. He said she just liked the sound of it.)
On early TV's caravan
inside the cathode light
a funny man in commotion
entertained us that night.
His jokes were like that of a fiery spark
that hypnotized me with laughs.

His name was Nipsey Russell.
His name was Nipsey Russell.

He spun us tales of life of American living
with observations all filled with verse.
How he enchanted us.
Oh, how I laughed when I would hear
the jokes coming from the set into my ear.

His name was Nipsey Russell.
His name was Nipsey Russell.

Laughing with "Car 54."
On Dino's roasts, made us laugh more.
Waiting for the setting sun.
Everyone would then have fun.
I hate to see the jokester go.
But I think, somehow he'll know
that we loved him, we loved him.

Thank you, Nipsey Russell.
Thank you, Nipsey Russell.
Thank you, Nipsey Russell.
Thank you, Nipsey Russell.

Don't know the OS so I can't vote, but what a nice tribute to Nipsy, one of my earliest influences for the love of the rhyme.
