The Lyrics

This is my tribute to entertainers who died way before their time in the past year or so. Jay is Jam Master Jay of run-dmc and daryl is daryl kile who used to pitch for the st louis cardinals. i know its a bit depressing i'm kind of upset now after writing it
Has anybody here seen my young friend Aaliyah
She'd be 23 today
She sold a lot of records
Especially for her young age
Too bad, I heard her pilot took cocaine

Anybody here seen my young friend Jay
For rap stars he paved the way
He stood for peace and friendship
But someone shot him anyway
What is going on today?

Anybody here seen my young friend Left-Eye
She would have a lot to say
They lost their all-star rapper
And her group continues to play
TLC won't be the same

Didn't you love the songs they created
Didn't they try to bring some joy into our lives
But now they died
It's not fair, why do things have to end this way

Anybody here seen my young friend Daryl
For St. Louis he should play
But one day last year he had an awful fate
Like Aaliyah, Left-Eye, and Jay

Yes, I know who some of those folks are, and their passing was indeed a great loss, Ethan. I've written a number of serious parodies myself when my emotions moved me to, so I can relate. Good work.

Aw, hell... I've decided that for me, "How Funny" means "How clever, inventive, interesting, original..." -- there's just too much good stuff that isn't --and isn't MEANT to be -- "funny"... Some pacing issues, but nice job.
