Forest Lawn's Rhythm



Among a forest of granite, it's stone chiseled face
Lie a wizard of rhythm, his last resting place
A creature unique, unbridled and free
The music his maiden, for all us to see
The fruits of his craft, he'd strip from its tree
Insatiable hunger, to feed boundlessly
The birthright of greatness, no one dare obstruct
An earned compensation for the art he'd conduct
An invincible icon, no weakness to speak
His first rest the last one, Forest Lawn's Super Freak
