Rest in Peace
Music and Lyrics by Ali Gilmore

Heard it on the news today

Our dear Farrah passed away

So, I got up and feathered my hair

Just like she did back in the day

Heard it on the news today

Michael Jackson passed away

Didn’t know quite what to say

But, I think maybe he’s better off this way

And I hope that there is better news tomorrow

Cuz I can only take so much sorrow

Heard it on the news today

Ed McMahon passed away

Now he sits by Johnny again

Famous host and his loyal sidekick friend

Heard it on the new news today

Billy Mays passed away

Oxy Clean King annoyed me to no end

But, my stuff’s so clean and bright

That I kind of thought of him

As a friend

And I hope that there is better news tomorrow

Cuz I can only take so much sorrow

Turning off my radio, TV and the telephone

Pull the covers over my head

Wrapped up in my fleece

Drifting off to sleep

Imagining they’re all resting in peace…
