The Lyrics

A tribute to the passing of the great comic and character actor, Louis Nye, (pronounced Louie)
The world lost a funny man
His first name was Louis
Nobody was better than
This humerous guy
He kept us all laughin' so
On that old Steve Allen Show,
Today we say Goodbye To Louis Nye

Appeared in those old sitcoms
Played in several movies
When he guested on a show
The rating soared high
"Harper Valley PTA"
Or hip Gordon Hathaway
Too bad that it's Goodbye To Louis Nye

Oh, when they pass out wings
To all the Kings of Comedy
He will be listed in that Golden Book
Laughin' early at the Pearly
Gates, St. Pete, will be
He'll say, "Come In"
Without a second look...

"Hi Ho Steverino" was
His popular catch phrase
There wasn't a character
That he wouldn't try..
We're all gonna' miss his face
Nobody can take his place
Let's bid a sad Goodbye To Louis Nye

Yes, it's a sad Goodbye To Louis Nye
(Hi Ho Lou-erino !)

No I don't remember him unfortunately. If you know any movies he did or anything available on VHS/DVD I'll rent it, seems like I'm missing out here.
