The Lyrics

With a tear in my eye I wrote this for Rodney Dangerfield,
Has anybody here seen my old friend Rodney?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
His one-liners made us laugh and it's so sad that he's passed
We are so sad that he's gone.

Has anybody here seen my old friend Rodney?
He told us he don't get no respect
His humor freed us from our cares and woes
And we laughed until we cried
We are so sad that he's gone.

Has anybody here seen my old friend Rodney?
We all loved him in caddy shack
Knocking those balls around that golf course
We are so sad that he's gone.

Didn't you love the way his eyes bulged out?
Didn't you love the way he fidgeted with his collar?
And his wonderful delivery
Back To School
Was so dam funny


Has anybody here seen my old friend Rodney?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
His one-liners made us laugh and it's so sad that he's passed
We are so sad that he's gone.

Joe, I thought this was well done.

At first I thought you misunderstood the basic concept of satire. Satire is there to poke fun at the powerful. OK for Abraham and John but not for Martin. Then I realised that all you really wanted to do was exercise your bad taste. Yawn. WTF was Rodney, not so clear.
