The Lyrics

Robert Goulet has died at age 73. awaiting a lung transplant
Robert Goulet has Left Us
He didn't go in summer,
Thrilled us many summers,
With rich baritone..
An actor and singer
He reached high acclaim
Broadway was his lustre,
From Canada came..

Too bad he had to leave us
He went away in autumn
Why he was called in autumn
The Lord only knows..
Gave "Camelot" sparkle
As Sir Lancelot
He bristled with talent
Rave reviews he got..

He hit the top charts
Singing "What Kind of Fool Am I"
Later voiced cartoon features
Easy goin' kind a' guy....

Too soon he had to leave us
No more will he be bringing
His hearty laugh, and singing,
That once, charmed us so...
No, no more in springtime
Summer, winter or fall!
But, we still have his charm to recall!

(So Long, Bob..)

I don't know much of Robert Goulet's music other than his Christmas recordings and this parody's OS, but I enjoy his music, along with lots of other older stuff that drives kids crazy when they walk by my guidance-counselor office at lunch hour and I have an easy-listening station on the radio. 555

Good one - he got what he deserved. He was one of the funniest guys. His best performance was singing Jingle Bells, Batman Smells on The Simpsons.

Hey AFW - Fine tribute - no jokes in these comments. We lost a good one here. A fitting eulogy to a fine professional. Subbing funny vote for "how fine the tribute" 5s all around.

Thanks, All for voting and commenting...Just a brief anecdote about RG....Back in the "60's" I worked doing inspections and traffic violation checks on auto insurance applicants...Goulet was in town, doing Summer Stock theatre, here in Ohio, ...while going through court dockets, his name would pop up quite frequently for various traffic, and/or drinking citations.. Guess he enjoyed quite a reputation as the wild partyer in those early years..I believe this would have been just before he went to New York and done Camelot...Bartenders in local clubs in this small town all knew, and told many a tale of his wild exploits..God bless him...

Well done, AFW. I saw him in Man of La Mancha about 10 years ago; and, while he demonstrated a great voice, he seemed to be half-singing, half-talking his way through "Impossible Dream" and other songs. He will be missed.
