The Lyrics

Thanks, David Letterman,
For all those late night shows
Top Tens and clever prose,
Propped up our heads,
And from our beds
Watched you between our toes
We thank you so much....

Thanks, David Letterman
For jokes that you'd conceive
Our hearts tug at your sleeve
Wished you could stay,
But life's that way,
Good times, and times to leave
So, thank you so much

For being our nightshine ointment
Loved your Nine-Eleven take, poignant
That smash of a flash from dear Drew B,
What naughty fun, surprise - well done

Yes, thanks, David Letterman
You filled our laughing cup
As down home as a pup
Suits neatly pressed, some double breast
You never buttoned up
Great midwestern touch...

And thanks, David Letterman
For those O'Reilly spats
Like two prime alley cats
You made us proud
With grit, unbowed
And always knew your stats
Impressed us so much...

Many thanks, David Letterman
For pets and stupid tricks,
Tossed humans in the mix
Cool comedy with Rupert Jee
Gave "Hello Deli" kicks
A fun guy, you're such..

Pulled through that serious bypass
And made fun of it when you came on
You showed us you still had your game on
Med staff was thanked...heart high you ranked

(God Bless)

And thanks, David Letterman
For pumpkins dropped on streets
From multi storied suites
The times we met,
Chris Elliott,
As, "Guy Under The Seats"
So offbeat, so much...

Thanks, too, David Letterman
For Paul Shaffer in shades
Musician, sharp as blades
Top guests, the sort,
Like Martin Short
Don Rickles, David Spade
Can't thank you enough...

Thanks for, David Letterman,
Admitting staff affairs
Knocked some fans off their chairs
You faced ordeal,
Proved you were real,
Plucked blackmailer's short hairs,
Stayed cool in that crunch..

They're turning lights off on May - twenty
After thirty three years of late show
An end of an era - this great show
You earned your pay...go fish with Jay

Max cheers, David Letterman
Is Darlene Love's song set,
Like Johnny had his Bette?
Tears may well up and fill the cup
Emotional? bet!
Thanks again, and so long, Dave...
