Lyrics:
I wanna try your shoes on, and wear them for a day. Learn to walk like 
you do, and see what I see. I'd talk like I knew something, that everyone 
wanted to hear.
But you're the Fonz. . .
The definition of icy, the measure of what's up. You could play the tuba, 
and everyone would clap. Well I can play the tuba, and they all just 
shake their heads.
Cause you're the Fonz. . .
I know it's over for me, I know it's over for me, I know it's over for 
me, I know it's over.
Drove my car to the top floor, and stood at the edge. When I woke up in 
heaven, looked down and no one cared. But when you pulled your own 
trigger, they all gathered round to watch.
Cause you're the Fonz. . .

That's it!  I hope this makes some sense to you. It's a fun song to play, 
so have fun, dammit. E-mail me and tell me how I'm doing, or if you have 
any changes or anything.

Luke
