The Lyrics

This song I wrote as a tribute to Amy Winehouse on the day she died (7/23/2011). It is not meant to be funny overall (although I could not resist replacing Roger Moore with Soupy Sales). West Covina & El Monte refer to the areas where I live in Southern California.
I was so sad, to hear you died
I never met you, but still I cried
You were born in 1983
You sang much better, than the cast of "Glee"

You were such a pretty lass
Now your voice - is in the past
Your looks pleased - a lot of males
Why do I act like Soupy Sales?

You cheated yourself,
Like I was afraid you would,
I'm sorry, your life was troubled,
We know that you sang good...

West Covina & El Monte
Your songs have a nice - effect on me
I wanted you - to be a winner
I hear your music - during my dinner

Your singing was a real gift
Your songs would give me - a real lift
Your life ended at 27
Now you are singing - up in Heaven

You cheated yourself,
I was afraid you would,
I'm sorry, your life was troubled,
We know that you sang good

I was so sad, to hear you died
I never met you, but still I cried
You were born in 1983
You sang much better, than the cast of "Glee"

Your singing was a real gift
Your songs would give me - a real lift
Your life ended at 27
Now you are singing - up in Heaven

You cheated yourself,
I was afraid you would,
I'm sorry, your life was troubled,
We know that you sang good

You cheated yourself,
Like I was afraid you would,
I'm sad that, your life was troubled,
Damn, We know that you sang good....
Thus this is a way of demonstrating that not all parodies have to be funny per se. This is meant as a respectable tribute to Amy Winehouse's talent. I hope it can be posted.
