    "Jim Henson's Dead" Song
    Hey has anyone ever heard of the song "Jim Henson's Dead"? I just got it off of Kazzah. It's really nice, although I don't like the abrupt use of the phrease "Jim Henson's dead". I also think it's pretty recently done as they mention Pokemon. The words go as follows"
    "Pokemon's a silly thing
    Barney's now just purple hings(I think that's the word)
    Power Rangers lost their will to fight

    Yeah, but pigs in space they rule the sky
    And Oscar's still a grouchy guy
    And Animal is looking dynomite

    Oh Jim Henson's dead and gone
    But his Muppets will live on
    And Kermit's still hot, cause it's still not, easy bein...green.

    Bert is mad cause Ernie can't hear
    With a bannanna in his ear
    They must learn how to cooperate

    Yeah, the count is counting "1, 2, 3"
    And no one laughs at poor fozzie
    And Scooter's ****** cause Ralph is always late

    Oh Jim Henson's dead and gone
    But his Muppets will live on
    And Kermit's still hot, cause it's still not, easy bein...1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 (tune from Sesame Street pinball comercial thing).

    Now Miss Piggy's just a big slab of pork
    To the Swedish Chef who says mmm ORT ORT ORT
    And Cookie Monster wants another bite

    Yeah, and Big Bird, well he just can't see
    Why the two old guys in the balcony
    Think Snuffalupagus is out of sight

    Oh Jim Henson's dead and gone
    But his Muppets will live on
    And Kermit's still hot, cause it's still not, easy bein... green

    Oh Jim Henson's dead and gone
    But his Muppets will live on
    And Kermit's still hot, cause it's still not, easy bein...

    Easy being green... oh...."

    Any one who would like me to send them the song just ask, I'd be more than happy too.

    Hasn't Stephen Lynch done other songs like this and hasn't it played on Muppet Central Radio?

    You can download this song quite easily. Does anyone know for what occasion the song was made? Was it made for Jim Henson's funeral or something?

    Was it ever released on CD?

    When I saw the artists I thought it would be a joke song. A rather tastless joke song because of some of the other things he's done. Special Ed, Special Olympics, Kill a Kitten, and others come to mind. But when I heard it I was surprised that it doesn't make fun of the Muppets of Jim Henson's death at all.

    I don't think it's wrong to have the lyric that Jim Henson is dead. He is. The whole point is that while he is dead his vision will (hopefully) live on.

    I remember hearing this song too. When I used to have Kazza. Really lovely tribute to The Muppet Master as I loveingly like to call him. :) I never thought of him as being ' dead '. :cry: No one is ever really dead as long as ther's one person in the world that still holds his memory, and Jim Hanson will always be alive for decades to come if not centuries. :smirk:
