A heartfelt obit this, for a hilarious perfomerย and truly great comic lyricist. The condensed two lines there are from the wonderful “Let’s Do it” – the actualย lines are

Be mighty.
Be flighty.
Come and melt the buttons on me flameproof nightie.
Let’s do it!
Let’s do it tonight!

The song is full of such gems (as is It Would Never Have Worked – not to mention all her sketch and comic drama output).
