The Lyrics

Tribute to Johnny Carson
Oh,Johnny Boy, Tonight, tonight,
They're talking,
on Larry King,
Old Stars from days gone by
They toast your fame,
And give deserving credit
The world is shocked,
Tis' sad you had to die...

But still you're here,
In all those great old re-runs
Tonight Show tapes,
From thirty years ago
You are not gone,
Your spirit lives forever,
Oh, Johnny Boy, Oh, Johnny Boy,
We love you so...

The curtains part,
And Ed calls out, "Here's Johnny"
We see your smile,
And those "Go-Bad" routines,
Like animals, and birds
That wind up funny
You make us laugh, again
With skits and scenes...

'Cause you're still here
In all those great old re-runs
Tonight Show tapes,
From times that we still know
And you're not gone
Your humor lives forever,
Oh, Johnny Boy, Oh, Johnny Boy,
We love you so...

Thanks, Jeff, Laurie, Alvin, Stuart, and Jeff.... yes, He's a hero of mine... and feel a special bond, since I hail from a small town in the midwest...fifteen miles from Norfolk, Nebraska...where he grew up.

To paraphrase the song Bette Midler serenaded him with on his penultimate show: "We'll be seeing him, in the old familiar places..." (sigh) Heart felt tribute. 555
