The Lyrics

Had to put this out quick for my NJ Icon (It's a partial)
New Jersey's mourning,
Gandolfini's gone
This shocking passing has just dimmed
A shining sun....

They wrote, he's one in a million
His star will always shine
But he left WAY before his lifetime,
We've got big tears in our eyes. ...

And now the whole world is mourning
Miss you now you're gone
Sopranos gonna keep you
King of right and wrong

James we're sure, we're sure, missing you, sadly
Now we grieve of your short lived time, sad about it

You've brightened all our lives
Miss the blue moon in your eyes....

Cause your fans are all in mourning

We lost a shining sun
we lost a shining sun
we lost a shining sun.....

Nice to see you back again. Personally this didn't effect me at all because I didn't even know who this guy is (never watched The Sopranos) but I wanted to read this parody cause it's been awhile since I've seen one by you.

Thanks, Matthias. This was just my own little quick tribute to the New Jersey actor that I admired so much.
