The Lyrics

Hanks Movie Memories
They started with a smash,
First big hit was "Splash"
Fresh out of "Bosom Buddies"
For the films, he showed a "Pash"
So natural, he was...

Hanks Movie Memories
That "Bachelor Party" guy,
Made us wink an eye
With John Candy in "Volunteers"
He was a little sly
Still, we thank him, so much...

"Nothing In Common" with Gleason
"Sleepless In Seattle" was awesome
Played chump, "Forrest Gump"..hope you saw some
"Turner And Hooch"
Cop and his pooch...

They're Hanks Movie Memories
His "Toy Story" voice,
for Woody was the choice
Who better than our leading man
To make the kids rejoice?
We thank him, so much...

Hanks Movie Memories
In "Apollo 13" he lit up the screen
When parts are his, that's who he is
And he makes it look routine,
Such talent, he has...

Hanks Movie Memories
For "Philadelphia" won Oscar and hurrah
Portrayed a gay with Aids and heart
The part made him a Star..
How poignant he was...

Nice prison guard in "The Green Mile"
Then, he walked the "Road To Perdition"
"Saving Private Ryan" his mission
In "Castaway"..solo, he'd play

They're Hanks Movie Memories
So glad for every one, the drama and the fun
He's chock full of charisma, for the Prez he oughta' run
Much brighter than the sun,
A career next to none

We thank him, so much...
Thanks, Tom..

Really nice tribute to a guy with actual talent, as opposed to the jerks who get the big roles. Five Turtles (like Oscars, 'cept better, of course lol).
Paree Dee, good one.

Some parodies are like a box of never know what yer gonna get. But with yours, there are no surprises. They're all excellent. 555

Excellent, as usual. One of the comedians I've worked with turned down a role he auditioned for and, was offered, because he would have had to wear a dress. The role: co-star on "Bosom Buddies" opposite Tom Hanks. Oh, yeah, 555

After Tom Hanks won the Oscar for Best Actor two years in a row, I started calling him "Mr. Hollywood". 555, AFW, good tribute.
