The Lyrics

Tribute to Canadian born actor, Leslie Nielson, who passed away on November 28th from complications of pneumonia, at the age of 84.
Leslie, sad your passing,
Played so great in "Naked Gun"
Brilliant humor, strictly zany, off the wall

Leslie, long career span,
You could crack up anyone,
In the early years,
Straight acting was your call..

"Airplane" lines..would launch the humor roles
Hilarious,..with comic inspiration
So many films, you reached your highest goals,
And did your best to entertain the nation

Leslie, we shall miss you
I, and all your loyal fans,
Sharing mem'ries in your films and photograph
Leslie, sleep well, Leslie..
It looks like the Lord had plans,
Placed you on the bill to make the angels laugh

Placed you on the bill to make the angels laugh

This was clever, AFW, am I voting for him or you?! Sure loved that guy! Good job on this very sentimental piece. Fav line: "Placed you on the bill to make the angels laugh". Not 'religious' per se, I nevertheless say "Amen, brother!"

I agree with this wholehearted sentiment. Knowing your history with doing tributes I was waiting for his because Leslie without a doubt deserves it.

Thanks, Rod and Matthias...yes, he had unforgettable moments and priceless scenes as a comedic actor. Many of his recent or younger fans may not even know of his early straight roles, in such films as, "Tammy And The Bachelor" , opposite Debbie Reynolds from 1957. His move to comedy demonstrated perfect timing. I just can't imagine him playing Lt. Frank Drebin in the Naked Gun series, as a younger man.
