Default Ode To Tom Hanks (hahaha)


Ode to Tom Hanks

There’ll never be another just like you
You have told the story
Of a little wooden cowboy who
Feared for his faded glory

While you were saving Private Ryan
You were a true hero
Get the man while he was dying
Your battle skills to show

And you flew through outer space
But you never made it to that place

Chorus:
Oh and there’s the strong and quiet man
Who holds the Oscar in his hand
On stage, he bravely stands up tall
And the all audience gives their thanks
For your talent, Mr. Hanks
You’re the greatest of them all

On an island you were stranded
A message would not send
Found a ball and he was branded
Your one and only friend

Walk the walk, the mile was green
Not a single stair
A bigger man was never seen
Did not deserve the chair

It was hard to get the girls to play
But you kept on coaching anyway

Chorus

Bridge:
Jenny is your only girl
But your only girl is gone
You had held her in your arms
Until the early dawn
Run and run ‘til you run no more
She’ll be waiting after the war
What are you fighting for?
What are you fighting for?

Burdened on you, a heavy load
You found a way to crack the code
With much less than Da Vinci showed
The Grail was on the road
The end of the road

Chorus

Very smart! I love this. Definatley reminds me of all those movies and makes me want to watch them again!

I think it's only missing one movie- Philedelphia Story, was one of his best roles he played despite not agreeing with the character's lifestyle. goes to show you how committed he is to acting as an art.

Great though, just the way it is.

No joke, but very funny.

My favorite Tom Hanks story: after his wife Rita Wilson gave birth to their first child, she had to teach him that her breasts were for the baby, not him.

He jumped the couch
On Oprah's set
When Katie started showing
And denigrated shrinks
To Lauer without knowing
But Tom kept secrets
From his fans
And hid drugs in his cupboards
He never told the public
The baby was L. Ron Hubbard's

LOL, I could possibly do one about Johnny Depp, although I think I'd be better off doing Gene Wilder or Jim Carrey. I thought that thing up there about Tom's wife's breast was hilarious lol. I am currently writing a song about King Kong for another friend of mine, lol, it is hilarious so far, though not suitable for small children.
