The Lyrics

I recently read about Robert Arndt's passing on this site. He might well be called the "king of parodies", what with nearly 4000 or more on this site alone. Kudos to another "Jonathan"--not me--for posting his tribute to Rob a couple of days ago. I hadn't heard about it. Though we never met in person, Rob's insights, sense of humor, and "wordsmithing" abilities are going to be hard to beat. As our Naval friends, would say, "Bravo Zulu" or "well done". I for one will miss him and his parodies.
They were always so funny, his own parodies
He wrote so many, and he made them with ease
I doubt he made money, but had he done so
We’d sure have the mem’ries, wherever we’d go--

Some lyrics were salty, and others were sweet
No matter the flavor, they’re hard to be beat
Rob, it’s not much but this one thing I do
A tribute to your skill—and this one’s for you!

And we can tell so many, ‘bout all of your songs
All of them funny, and so little was wrong,
I hope you don’t mind,
I hope you don’t mind, that I just want to say
Your songs were so funny, and they made my day!

I heard of your passing, A few days ago
Wondered why so few of your recent songs showed
On Amiright, when for comic relief
Now it’s not funny, I only feel grief—

I ask your forgiveness, the readers on-line
Rob could have been a great friend of mine
His life now is over, but ours still remain
Let’s live our lives fully, please never complain.

And maybe some funnies, and songs will arise
So many with talent, so make a surprise,
I know you’ll be fine, I know you’ll be fine,
When your works I see
And think about Rob A,, and what he did, please.
May others come to acquire and utilize the skills to keep humorous parody coming. I'm sure Rob would appreciate others making the effort to add a dash of humor to an increasingly somber world. Rob's work is finished--but for others, let's keep this bus on the road!

well done, from one Jon to another. Rob will be sorely missed around here.

I appreciate that, Jon. Rob's wit and ability to do what he did with the tunes is something amazing. I for one would stand in his shadow.

Thanks, Porfle. My wish was to honor Rob's contributions to this site. There won't be another like him anytime soon, if ever,
