The Lyrics

I was shocked & saddened to hear of my good buddy, Rob Arndt's unfortunate passing at the far too young age of 54 years old, last month. for somebody I had never met in person, it almost felt like my family & I knew the guy personally. my mother even cried while reading a few of our past interactions on this website. it's unfortunate and amiright is now missing one of it's top talents! votes are not necessary on this parody, as obviously, is isn't really meant to be funny. however, if you like, you may use the comments section to post condolences & well wishes to The Arndt Family.
R.I.P. Buddy, this is for you!
OS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pc1AWYFsAMU
only 54-years-old
a great man passed away
he wrote of history, childhood toys
wrote once or twice about cake
my mom cried, when I let her know
was a strange feeling of pain
no one smiled, he’d been gone a while
but, he’s watching us, today

‘Cause I Know That Rob Arndt’s In Heaven
Though He’ll No Longer Come ‘Round
Somehow, I Know He’s Watching
Hope He’s Reading Our Works, Now
Though It Might Feel Lonely
I Remember He Can See
I Know That Rob Arndt’s In Heaven
He Was A Good Friend To You & Me

writers come & writers go
craving amiright fame
I came back, hit it off
with the guy, Rob was his name
year by year, we became friends
on this wonderful website
names on screens, now friends forever
I know he’s in peace, tonight

‘Cause I Know That Rob Arndt’s In Heaven
Though He’ll No Longer Come ‘Round
Somehow, I Know He’s Watching
Hope He’s Reading Our Works, Now
Though It Might Feel Lonely
I Remember He Can See
I Know That Rob Arndt’s In Heaven
He Was A Good Friend To You & Me

all the times he’d request parodies
we collabed for a while
it’s a shame Ol’ Rob can't be here now
to make all of us smile
on amiright, he kept things bright
so, now if I’m feeling down
I’ll just be glad, instead of being sad
‘cause I know Robert’s watching now

Yes, I Know That Rob Arndt’s In Heaven
Though He’ll No Longer Come ‘Round
Somehow, I Know He’s Watching
Hope He’s Reading Our Works, Now
Though It Might Feel Lonely
I Remember He Can See
Yes, I Know That Rob Arndt’s In Heaven
He Was A Good Friend To You & Me

A Good Friend To You & Me
A Good Friend To You & Me
A Good Friend To You & Me
thanks for reading! & Rob, thanks for the memories! it was a great 5 years of friendship! now, take it easy up there, mate.
and don't worry, guys, I'll be back with new parodies & back into comedy mode, soon. I promise!

Nicely done.

I don't know the OS, but I get the meaning of your words. Rob and I shared an interest in military history and technology. I learned a lot from him. I did not know he was younger than I am. I was aware he was ill, but did not know the nature of it. He was one of the most prolific writers here. I had been away from the site for the past two or three months. When I came back and didn't see any posts by Rob, I knew something was wrong. Rob Arndt will be missed. He put a spell on us all. Auf wiedersehn.

^ thanks guys and yeah, Pat, Rob's parodies were just as often informative, as they were funny.

A very fine, heartfelt tribute. Only 54? That make the loss even more profoundly sad.

Jonathan, I'm speechless. This is extraordinary!

Never met Rob, but he and I had a couple of good-natured contests and riffed on each other's parodies. Sad that he went so young, but he left an indelible mark on this site. A fine tribute.

thanks all, I gotta say, I'll really miss the old chap around here...

I'm just finding out about this here. Can't believe it. Rob was one of my best friends here on the site. He always had an encouraging word for my parodies whether they deserved it or not. I will miss him and his prolific contributions very much.

^ same here, he was a great guy.

I enjoyed some of his AmIRight songs, (yes, I know he has 4.200 song Malcolms) now I'm sad that Robert D. Arndt Jr. died. (sadly, I don't think his brother, Roger Arndt would fill in for him because of it) John A. Barry had more parodies than him, and I only had 236 song contributions. There were others that were stuck in my head too. So long for now, Rob.

^ yes, I believe his numbers were second only to JAB. not bad, for a regrettably short 7 years.
