The Lyrics

He died just 33 days after his final TV appearance. We will miss him.
Andy Rooney was a guy we loved.
Studied hard at Colgate, was war dove;
Buddied airmen as they Nazis shoved,
Then painted Auschwitz bad.

His skin was thicker than a catcher's glove.
His grin was quicker than a tragic love.
His sin: he snickered at all gods above.
No saint, but no damn cad!

Andy Rooney drew us from our ruts;
Blandly crooning, brewed in three min-nuts
Scandals looney for Sixty Min-nuts;
At free world's news, peptic vent.
How quaint his hoots, damn mad!


Andy Rooney sought to fly like dove;
Andy Rooney taught you why to love.
Buried soon, he's writ to sky above
In same flat suit he'd had.

For ancient coot, be glad!
Glad for his life, not his death.

A better penultimate line is "In plain matte suit, not plaid."

Fine tribute to a legendary whiner...but in a great way, an icon..

We couldn't let him pass away without a song. It is the end of an era.

AFW & 2E: Thanks; he was many other things that rhyme with "bad", e.g., grad, dad, granddad, an Irish lad, sad at times; but TOS was not long enough. I wonder why R & H made TOS so monotonous; perhaps they could not portray seamen then as too literate, when there was a draft, in contrast to today's volunteer Navy enlistees, many with degrees.

Terrific parody but you omitted his trademark bushy eyebrows. He was very good at exposing things in this world today that make absolutely no sense or are wasteful. He wasn't afraid to question. He was no sheep. People like him usually are murdered by the powers that be. He was lucky and we need more people like him.
