Christene Jackman ©&(p) 9.27.2017.  BMI Work No: 025553999.
For Joseph Levitch (Jerry Lewis).  
A Tribute to Jerry Lewis and a call for Forgiveness, Reconciliation and to "Live this Life Well." 


I saw the news on the net – a headline of the day
An old friend I’d never met - had gone and passed away
Echoes of laughter - pratfalls and tears
Thank you, my friend - for all of those years
Thank you, my friend - for all of those years
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Heaved a sigh at the looking glass – glimpsed a weary face
Dancing lines of chorus cast – silver strands keeping pace
Your leaving gave me pause - to stop and reflect
Make this life count - one time’s all you get.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CHORUS:
Time is a tyrant, a goose-stepping fiend
A taunting tirade taking over the scene
Each tick of the clock heralds: fade and wane
We’re all but a breath – against the Hurricane
We’re all but a breath – against the Hurricane
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Can’t you hear Eternity - thunderin’ in your chest
It’s the sound behind the heartbeat - the wind that drives the crest
There’s a Door and there’s a Knock - a time to fling it wide
A final curtain waits for all - and there’s no one that can hide.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CHORUS ~ Then Instrumental CHORUS (duet w alto sax/muted trombone)
Time is a tyrant, a goose-stepping fiend
A taunting tirade taking over the scene
Each tick of the clock heralds: fade and wane
We’re all but a breath – against the Hurricane
We’re all but a breath – against the Hurricane
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Make the Choice that must be made - while it’s called “Today”
Your ticket’s already paid - by Hands that paved the Way
So before fade to black – with stub clenched in hand
Live this life well – Live this life well – Live this life well – and strike up the band.
