The Lyrics

As Ed McMahon used to say every Monday night... and eventually Tuesday nights as well... "Stay tuned for an outstanding entertainment program: The Best of Carson!"
Goodbye to you, Mister Art Fern.
You hosted movies and you made heads turn.
That Carol Wayne had quite a load.
But the laughter never slowed
when we reached fork in the road.

Goodbye Art Fern, it's hard to laugh
since you joined heaven's joke-writer staff
and you're no longer on the air.
Lots of talk shows everywhere
but their hosts are not "all there."

We had joy, we had fun
30 seasons of Carson
but the hills Hollywood
know that Johnny still be good.

Goodbye to Stranger From the East.
On Carnac's questions, late-night fans would feast.
So many brilliant plays on words.
That turban really looked absurd
but mind the paradise's bird.

Goodbye Carnac, it's hard to laugh
since you joined heaven's joke-writer staff
and you're no longer on the air.
Jay and Dave just don't compare
and Conan's show gives me a scare.

We had joy, we had fun
30 seasons of Carson
but that last envelope
filled his fans with lots of hope.

We had joy, we had fun
30 seasons of Carson
but that last envelope
filled his fans with lots of hope.

Goodbye to Mister Monologue
who had to dodge Jim Fowler's cats and frogs
and saw the hatchet of Ed Ames.
Just one of thousands of the names
in your late-night show Hall of Fame.

Goodbye, great one, it's hard to laugh
since you joined heaven's joke-writer staff
and you're no longer on the air.
I guess the only thing that's fair
is cable reruns, you're still there.

We had joy, we had fun
30 seasons of Carson
but the stars on your couch
sometimes made us all say "Ouch!"
We had joy, we had fun
30 seasons of Carson
but the stars on your couch
sometimes made us all say "Ouch!"
We had joy, we had fun
30 seasons of Carson
but that last envelope
filled his fans with lots of hope.
We had joy, we had fun
30 seasons of Carson
but that last envelope
filled his fans with lots of hope.
We had joy, we had fun
30 seasons of Carson
but the hills Hollywood
know that Johnny still be good.
