The Lyrics

R.I.P., Paul Newman.
( --- instrumental intro --- )


Teardrops keep falling, Paul is dead
His race-driver eyes were deep as blue seen o-ver-head
Now it's time "to pit"
Those ---
Teardrops are falling, Paul is dead, they keep falling

Paul Newman did peaceful talkin' to the Sun
And he said he didn't like the way this world was run
Seein' people starve
Those ---
Teardrops are falling, Paul is dead, they keep falling

But there's one thing
We know
His good-will was so sweetly him completely

His hope was strong that charity would stop Earth's weeping


( --- instrumental riff --- )


Teardrops keep falling, Paul is dead
But that doesn't mean his life was one we'd soon for-get
Cryin's not for he
'Cause
Paul knew he'd never stop the rain by complainin'
Phil-an-thro-py
"Newman's Own" le-ga-cy


( --- instrumental --- )


His hope was strong that charity would stop Earth's weeping


( --- instrumental riff --- )


Teardrops keep falling, Paul is dead
But that doesn't mean his life was one we'd soon for-get
Cryin's not for he
'Cause
Paul knew he'd never stop the rain by complainin' ---

--- and now he's free-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee!


Nothing's worryin' ...

... he-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e ...


( --- instrumental fade --- )

Thanks, alvin.

Here's a very sweet YouTube video of Paul Newman's bicycle-riding scene in "Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid" during which the OS was played:

A very nice and appropriate tribute. But I can't be the only one who saw the words "Paul Is Dead" and thought of something that happened around the same time that BC&SK came out: The Beatle "Paul is dead" fiasco.
