The Lyrics

Tribute to the passing of Johnny Carson
Was born in Corning, Iowa nineteen twenty five
To be a great performer must have been his drive
Raised out in the midwest, in Nebraska state
His name was Johnny Carson, and the man was great!
He hosted "The Tonight Show" more than thirty years
The whole world mourns his passing with heartaches and tears..

Gone, gone,
Gone, Johnny's gone, gone, gone
Johnny C's gone..

Started doing tricks of magic back in high school days
He emcee'd local shows, learning comic's ways
By nineteen fifty seven was on "Who Do You Trust?"
Announcer on that quiz was Ed McMahon, a must
In "Sixty Two" became the Tonight Show host
Stayed on for thirty years, he was loved the most..

Gone, gone
Gone, Johnny's gone, gone, gone
Johnny C's gone..

It's said when he was off Johnny was super shy
And never went to parties, just a private guy
Greatest talk show host of all, he was it
Kept the whole world laughing with his lightning wit
Bet they welcome him in to the land divine
With that famous, "Here's Johnny" line..


Gone, gone,
Gone, Johnny's gone, gone, gone
Johnny C's gone

From Heaven: "The Tonight Show" starring Johnny Carson! This is St. Peter along with Duke Ellington and the NBC Orchestra, inviting you to join Johnny and his guests: Cary Grant, Marilyn Monroe, Albert Einstein, George Washington, and Elvis Presley! And now, ladies and gentlemen... Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Johnny! Hi-yohhhh!

Live from Heaven: It's the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Joining the Late Night King tonight: Donald Pleasence, star of the new movie "Hal70ween: The Death of Michael Myers -- Again"; Julia Child cooks with Johnny; The dead bailiffs from "Night Court"; that actor guy who sang "Macarthur Park"; and musical guests The Dead Rock All Stars (Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Brian Jones, that guy from INXS, Robert Palmer, John Bonham, John Panozzo, and Johan Sebastian Bach)... I'm Rod Roddy, and now heeeeeerrrrrrrrre's your fives! I five'd based on how profound the parody was.

Although Mr Carson means absolutely nix to me, this is a great tribute. 555

I guess I missed this one yesterday; I gotta say, it was another great tribute. The verses are great too. I agree with Chris Bodily TM on how profound it was; I'm giving it fives as well.

Chris: If you think Cobain is in heaven, then you need to clean off your telescope. And I'm not sure about Morrison, Hendrix and Jones, either. Though from what I understand, Bonham has a far better chance than the still-living (I think, it's hard to tell sometimes) Plant and Page.

Johnny would be proud. Great parody of that Chuck Barry song. Truly inspired.

LOL, Ingebord - very witty

Great OS to use for a great man AFW - lots of laughs, and he invented the milk-the-bad-joke-for-its-badness genre - 555
