The Lyrics

Both Vincent van Gogh and Robin Williams were very talented...and sadly both took their own lives. They will both be missed...
1-Arabian Nights, a genie colored in sky blue.
Giving millions of punchlines, maybe even two.
Good Morning Vietnam, talking through the radio,
And was an alien on a "Happy Days" spin-off show.

Chorus-I think I understand, through your life of comedy.
Yet you suffered for your sanity, and wanted to set it free.
Did they look at you back then? Maybe they'll look again.

2-Museum Night, presidents and preacher men.
Peter Pan, Dr. Patch, a child once again.
Characters of hue, A British Nanny in disguise.
A toy owner, an old dog, a bicentennial guy.

Chorus-I think I understand, through your life of comedy.
Yet you suffered for your sanity, and wanted to set it free.
They now look at you back then, now they look again.

Bridge-And they do love you, and your laughs were true.
And when there's no hope left inside on that San Francisco Night.
You took your life like Lenny Bruce has done.
But I could tell you Robin, this whole damned world isn't meant for everyone.

3-Now it's movie night, DVD's in the store aisle.
Your name's mentioned on some titles.
Your name is one we won't forget.
The strangers that you've met,
The fighters, lovers, and celebrities.
Television and Silver Screen,
Is shown forever til the end of time.

Chorus-Now I think I know, what you tried to say to me.
You suffered from your sanity, throughout comedy.
We are crying, and crying still...Goodbye Robin Williams.
RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)
