The Lyrics

Thanks, Mr. Sammy D,
Star-dom was destiny,
Vaudeville by age three,
Played on the bill
With Uncle Will,
And father, Sam made three
We thank you so much

Thanks, Mr. Sammy D,
At acting, you stood tall,
Back then, you did it all
Danced in fine form,
Sang up a storm,
Cracked jokes right off the wall,
We thank you, so much

You had great style as a showman
Like Fred Astaire, danced elastic
You were nothing short of fantastic,
And next to none, numeral one..

Our thanks, Mr. Sammy D,
Ratpacked Sinatra's clan
And gave us "Candy Man"
"What Kind Of Fool
Am I" was cool,
Too short, your career span
But, thank you, so much

A great all around entertainer
True one-of-a-kind, and a soul son
Whom many compared to Al Jolson
There'll never be..your likes, we'll see

So, thanks, Mr. Sammy D,
Though car wreck took your eye
Small statured, still, big guy
You had the heart
In all your art,
Too soon you said goodbye,
(But) We thank you, so much

We thank you, so much
