The Dead Celebrity List Song

(to the tune of Good King Wenceslas)

Bowie, Burt Kwouk, Rickman, Prince
Boutros Boutros ghali
Fidel Castro, Rick Parfitt
and Muhammad Ali

All these folk dropped dead this year,
doesn't seem quite proper.
Celebrities must fear who is next
to come a famous cropper.

Corbett, Daniels, Andrew Sachs
Glenn Frey of The Eagles,
Terry Wogan, Jimmy Young -
all dead famous people

Caroline Aherne has gone
George Michael and George Martin,
Gene Wilder and Victoria Wood,
the great they kept departing.

Umberto Eco, Harper Lee
Prince Buster, Leonard Cohen
Sharon Jones, Edward Albee,
the talented kept going

So 2016 takes its leave,
its list of dead a barrage.
Who next year will we all grieve?
Please take Nigel Farage...
