Farewell to a comic so good/
She wrote as we all wish we could/
𝘉𝘦 𝘮𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵𝘺, 𝘣𝘦 𝘧𝘭𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵𝘺/
𝘔𝘦𝘭𝘵 𝘮𝘺 𝘧𝘭𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘰𝘧 𝘯𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵𝘪𝘦/
We’ll miss you
A heartfelt obit this, for a hilarious perfomer and truly great comic lyricist. The condensed two lines there are from the wonderful “Let’s Do it” – the actual lines are
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).
