The Lyrics

Tribute to Richard Pryor, who recently died of a heart attack at age 65
You Opened the Door, Richard
You opened the door, for many more
You Opened the Door, Richard
Richard, your comedy opened the door..

You Opened the Door, Richard
Nobody before had your true style
You Opened the Door, Richard
Richard. you kept us laughin' awhile

Great movies like "Silver Streak" and "Stir Crazy"
"Lady Sings the Blues" and one called, "Wholly Moses"
"Bustin' Loose" "The Toy" "Harlem Nights" "Brewster's Millions"
Your heart had the humor key

You Opened the Door, Richard
We still hear applause from concert's old
You Opened the Door, Richard
Richard, your act was comedy gold

Richard, your act was comedy gold
