Benny Goodman, Band Leader
A letter was left in mailbox I wanted to see
Which had been only meant for me;
When I opened it and did read;
Was about a band someone did lead.
Last name was Goodman and first Benny;
Times we played together had been many;
For music he always had a natural knack;
Fans wanted him to keep coming back.
People would cheer and hands clap;
Him on his back would often slap;
Great music put you in the mood
After his band you heard and viewed.
Now that the days have all gone by,
And here at home I often cry;
Many happy times there had been;
Wish God would bring him back again.
