The Lyrics

Art Linkletter dies at 97
The friendliness of Arthur
Was proven in his day
He made us feel at home
In his own special way
He was famous on TV
From L.A. out to Manhattan
Now he's gone home,
And it's sadly that we say...

We lost an Art in California
Out in Bellair, he passed away
He had the manner and the smile
To charm a crocodile
He proved "Kid's Say The Darnedest Things"
Gentle zings..
He showed us all, "People Are Funny"
House Party'd clean and warm TV..
We thank the Lord for dear Art Linkletter
No one like him, again, we'll see
