The Lyrics

Charley Weaver was a talent
Character of wit and style
Old smashed hat and wire glasses
He would always guarantee a smile

They called him, Weaver,
Charley Weaver
Premiered on the Jack Paar Show
Made us believers,
Really made our laughter flow

Charley'd light the TeeVee
With the fun he'd bring
Cliff Arquette, was his off-stage name
Wore suspenders before Larry King..

That's Charley Weaver,
Fame achiever,
Master of the ad lib blends
Grandpa of Patricia,
David, too, who starred in "Friends"

Long ago, passed, Charlie Weaver
"Seven-Four" the door would close
Young folks may not even know him,
Unless they watch old game shows

Witty, cool as Coolwhip
Never had a joke go lame
Gimmick- played an oldtimer,
Told us, from Mt. Idy's, where he came

And he could sure make
People happy
Charley Weaver, we miss you
Raised bars higher,
One class act was what we'd view

Letters he'd receive from Momma,
With the audience he'd share
"She goes on..." became a cliche'
News about Elsie Krack in there..

Oh, that was Weaver,
No joke misses,
He could hold a crowd all night
His song, this is,
Givin' him a tribute right

Later played on Holly-wood Squares
Fast one-liners he could rip
Held his own with guys like Paul Lynde
Always came up with a funny quip

Everyone loved Weaver,
Charley Weaver
From him clever lines occurred
An honor that's so well deserved
An honor that's so well deserved

Honor is so well earned
Comics, young, take heed and learn...

AFW - Nice job and I agree about Charlie Weaver (Cliff Arquette). ;D

Lexcellent tribute, AF... He was *much* cleverer than the contemporary 'Arquette' we're stuck with—*David*!

I echo OMR & TJC, but I found many bumps in the pacing, easily corrected.

Woohoo - this song says I'm young! I l'd love it just for that, but I also love it because it's perfectly paced and with a ton of snappy lines. You've done an old master proud - 555 :^)
