The Lyrics

Every time that I heard this actor's name over the years, the same song would start running through my head. Maybe it will get better (or worse!) now. The original lyrics look dumb -- "Let the bells ring / Let the birds sing" (and repetitive!). But they're excusable since English was not the writer's first language. That doesn't explain a lot of other lyrics, though!

He was a character actor in plays, movies and TV
Ralph Bellamy

Nice tribute to a great actor. Loved your song. I did this one myself once. Not an easy one to parody due to some French lyrics and the fact that English is the artist's second language. Nice job. Research effort and making it work this well is well worth 5's for this parody.

Definitely extra credit for research (unless you already happened to know all that stuff) Didn't know he founded SAG. Well done.

Thanks, everyone! I did do some research on ol' Ralph. Now I feel like watching some of his movies! Michael, I hope that you do the Walt Bellamy parody!
