The Lyrics

Kind of in bad taste, but consider it a tragicomedy:
She once played Buffy on Family Affair,
Anissa Jones ODed on heroin at age eighteen
And Dana Plato played the girl on Different Strokes
Found dead in a trailer after she was treated mean.
That Nanny and the Professor kid who played Butch
At age twenty hung himself,
They were all friends of mine
:
Those are child stars who died, died
Those are child stars who died, died
Those are child stars who died, died
Those are shild stars who died, died
They were all child stars, and they died

We knew him as Alfalfa in the Little Rascals
Stabbed to death in a card game over twenty bucks,
Natalie Wood started acting as a girl,
Fell off a boat and drowned, man that really sucks,
They were two more friends of mine
I miss 'em--they died

Those are child stars who died, died
Those are child stars who died, died
Those are child stars who died, died
Those are shild stars who died, died
They were all child stars, and they died

Sal Mineo played Plato in Rebel Without a Cause,
Stabbed to death by a stranger in his L.A. pad,
We all know the little girl from Poltergeist,
Died in the hospital of cardiac arrest,
As for Dominique Dunne, and all the others I missed here,
This song is for you my sister

Those are child stars who died, died
Those are child stars who died, died
Those are child stars who died, died
Those are shild stars who died, died
They were all child stars, and they died

Wowie! You sure picked a hard one to pace. Fairly unknown too, but hopefully this will get people downloading the original.

Ok, except you forgot Brandon DeWilde and Bobby Driscoll, not to mention Rusty Hamer from "Make Room for Daddy".

i like it! you did a really good job on matching it up to the original. sadly though there are many more child stars that you could have added (not meaning anything against you just that there have been heaps that have died.)
