you had a face
Meant for the movies and T.V.
And through the decades you did grace
The screen with so much memory.
The bad guy or the good guy part,
You had a way that did beguile
The audience right from the start,
Drawn to you with that tooth gap smile.
You said Oscar made you a star,
That came with messes that you made.
But you shined brightly long and far.
We're glad you came and glad you stayed.
You give heaven a great big hug.
We're gonna miss your merry mug.
