The Lyrics

Tribute to the late British singer, Amy Winehouse
Once there was an Amy,
Lost in a buzz was Amy,
Critics and fans were fascinated by her
But booze and drugs would ply her

World was blessed with Amy
Better than best was Amy
She sang with passion, record number Grammys,
(But) could not keep the whammies

No one had so much talent as a singer
So deep and profound
But she could not perform without a zinger
To stress her sound

Bands, play the horns for Amy,
As the world mourns for Amy
Sang what her heart meant,
Found in her apartment,
Dear Amy you are now, at peace

Dear Amy you are now, at peace

AFW - As I remember, TOS is from "Where's Charlie?" by Frank Loesser (the musical version of the play "Charlie's Aunt"). After Amy, Janis Joplin, Cobain, and Hendrix, I wouldn't be surprised if all future rockers skip their 27th year. ;D

Thanks, OMR...I used Sinatra's version, but you're probably right..I think Maurice Chevalier had a record on it, too.
