The Lyrics

goodbye, miss jane keene
though i never...wed you at all
you played my wife so very well
we had ourselves a ball
you always did such good work
and i'd love to...do it all again
in reruns, we are on still
people won't forget our names

and it seems to me...i lived my life
as ralph kramden's skinny friend
every show was meant to bring you
lots of zany grins
and i really liked the whole crew
cause we could joke and kid
ralph kramden was a man adored
and everybody did

comedy is tough
the toughest part there is to play
jackie gleason's a superstar
and he took our breath away
sadly, he has died
and the rest of us have, too
though the cast has had their day
its apparent that...we reach fans, brand new

and it seems to me...i lived my life
as ralph kramden's skinny friend
every show was meant to bring you
lots of zany grins
and i really liked the whole crew
cause we could joke and kid
ralph kramden was a man adored
and everybody did

goodbye, miss jane keene
there are young fans...as our TV legend grows
they see it as something real sensational
more than just...a merry little show

and it seems to me...i lived my life
as ralph kramden's skinny friend
every show was meant to bring you
lots of zany grins
and i really liked the whole crew
cause we could joke and kid
ralph kramden was a man adored
and everybody did

AFW: They are trying to make 'em like that. Are you ready for Cedric the Entertainer as Ralph Kramden? Gabrielle Union as Alice? Mike Epps as Ed Norton? Regina Hall as Trixie? With Eric Stoltz and John Leguizamo in supporting roles? "And away we go!"
