The Lyrics

A DOUBLE tribute, as it should be...
Home on the T.V.
News came to shock me
News wasn't happy
Was a "Bad" day to see
Mike's show in darkness
On Farrah's highway
Angels led away
At peace always be

Death's made news day
Tributes at night
Hollywood treason how the stars dimmed tonight
I was hoping for good news to report on thru
Was black once then white now Mike Jackson's turning blue
Great poster, bed's burning, Farrah's leaving too

Crime that they left us
Drugs were his reason
Farrah's short season
Due to cancer growth

Life everlasting
Mike dancing cloud glides
She smiles for God's side
And we'll miss them so

Bummed out our day
Sad news at night
It once was fun to yell "Are you black or you white?"
Like land mines went off knowing what she went through
Now Mike's earning, cash churning, more since he turned blue
She's leaving, we're grieving, Farrah left too soon

Drugs shorten days
Cancer incites

Too many good people are losing the fight
Now we're praying, and saying, Mike went way too soon
And Mike's bringing, his singing, and leaving new venue
More angels, more beauty, now Farrah's with you

AFW and Joe Siebert said what I was going to about the parody, and I will definitely miss Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett. MJ, while commonly known as a child molester (despite being found not guilty in a court of law), drug addict and weirdo, was still the king of pop, and his death rivals those of Elvis and Princess Diana in terms of the dead celebrities' popularity and the untimeliness, and like Elvis (who died before I was born), Princess Di, he will be missed. Likewise with Farrah. I'll give you 5s for this.

Very fine and touching tribute, Mark. Shows versatility, to go from puns and wild humor to poetry. 555.

Thanks, Tom. I wanted to be sure Farrah got some equal time, as she was overshadowed by Michael..

.... not to mention poor Billy Mays, who barely got mentioned. And just today, Karl Malden. (btw, my friends call me Tommy or TT. hope you'll consider yourself my friend. :)

RIP Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett! A double tribute is a great idea since both Mike and Farrah died on that same day. If I wore a mood ring right now, the gem on my ring would be blue because I'm sad for their deaths. For some reason, they treat MJ's death like he's a god. I still think that Farrah's death should also be expressed a lot more since she's one of the major icons of the 70's...also on Billy Mays. He's also America's most important icon as well. Love the OS and your parody. 5's for condolences and sentiment! Security code: RIP.
