Lyrics and Music by Joseph Arthur, Edited by Ehud Lazin

You started out on Ork
A cosmic jet fueled dork
And I would love it when you
Visited us on happy days
Only you could know
The witness of your show
A brain made up of sadness
And electric rays
Good morning Vietnam
Must've been your truest song
For in you was a war you'd always wage
The hunting of good will
The laughs would never fill
Your hunger for the dream
To turn the page

Oh Robin you flew
And now robin you fly
To places we can't see or yet conceive
The joy that you gave
We know now was brave
To be free and yet
remain still a slave

The fisher king was you
Those of us never knew
That your demons hadn't yet been tamed
You hid in the storm
Of laughter so warm
Hard to see that the source
Was still maimed
Awakenings will come
But the sadness goes on
And age will come down on us all
The dead poets you loved
Wrote of it as they shoved
Light into the darkness of the fall

Oh Robin you flew
And now robin you fly
To places we can't see or yet conceive
The joy that you gave
We know now was brave
To be free and yet remain
still a slave

Earlier this week, the screen comedy legend Robin Williams took his own life, shaking pretty much all of us to the core and sending even those of us who never considered ourselves fans of the guy back to that one Homicide episode where he absolutely annihilated in his guest-starring role. One of those shaken was the singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur, who wrote and recorded “Robin (A Tribute To Robin Williams 1951-2014)” in the last couple of days. The song is full of references to Williams’ various roles, and the video that accompanies it is made up entirely of Williams clips.
