"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. :smile: 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:
