The Lyrics

I looked back at all the legends we have lost so far this year. The people being referred to in this song are: Bob Hope, John Ritter, Warren Zevon, and Edward Teller. Enjoy!
Has anybody here seen my old friend Bob?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
Entertained a lot of people, but died at one hundred one
I just looked around and he's gone.

Has anybody here seen my old friend Warren?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He wrote a lot of lyrics, but it seems the good die young
I just looked around and he's gone.

Has anybody here seen my old friend John?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He played that old Jack Tripper, but it seems the good die young
I just looked around and he's gone.

Didn't you love the things they stood for?
Didn't they try to make it fun? Music and TV?
They rest in peace
Someday soon
They'll resurrect one day

Has anybody here seen my old friend Edward?
He invented the H-Bomb!
I thought I saw him walking, Father Time didn't kill
Them: Bob, Warren, and John
RIPBob Hope, Warren Zevon, and John Ritter.

Anybody here/Seen our old friend Johnny/Can you tell me where he's gone?/Fifteen hundred records and scores of number one's/I just looked around and he's gone....Peace out, Chris.

Hey, Bob, you are right on target! I was going to say the same thing! The parody talks about legends, and Cash was right up there with the rest of them.
