The Lyrics

His name was Edward G Robinson
That old movie star we loved to hate (loved to hate))
The actor, Edward G Robinson
Snappy snarls, like "N'yaa" and "See" were great
Great, great, great.

Old comics always mimicked him,
More than anyone else
In "Key Largo" with Bogie and Bacall
In the thirties, ":Little Caesar".. old time gangster flick
Great expressions and a classic sour stare

Oh, here's to Edward G Robinson
The tough guy gruffness was his trademark way
Only one Edward G Robinson
No more calls, he gets the prize of play,
Hey, hey, hey...Hey, hey, hey

In "Double Indemnity"...and in, "McKenna's Gold"
"Cincinnati Kid" and "Ten Commandments"
"Soylent Green".."The Sea Wolf"
"Robin and the 7 Hoods"
"Nightmare"...and "Our Vines Have Tender Grapes"

An icon, Edward G Robinson
Short in stature, giant on the screen, (nicely mean..)
God bless you, Edward G Robinson
Heaven is the stage for you today,
Hey, hey, hey...Hey, hey, hey

(And he's the boss around here, "See!..n'yeah!..see!")

Double Indemnity was his best - great though odd-looking tough guy (although I remember he also played a sad sap in The Woman In The Window) - how did you choose this OS for him AFW? - j/k - great write - 555

Great idea, well done! As Billy Crystal once mentioned, Ed G's being cast in "The Ten Commandments" has to be one of the biggest blunders in casting history but, you couldn't help but love him in it anyway. "Where's your messiah now, Moses?" "Nyeah". 555

I disagree with Rick C I think it was a brilliant casting move. The scenes with Ed G as Pharoh are the only ones I remember

Here's an interesting tidbit: Chief Wiggum from "The Simpsons" was based on Edward G. Robinson
