lyrics

GORDIE (HOWE TO DO IT)

YOU SHOWED US HOW, TO DO IT
EACH AND EVERY DAY

HOW TO DO IT
HOW TO WORK
AND HOW TO PLAY THE GAME

YOU SHOWED US HOW
TO BE THE LEADER OF THE TEAM
WHEN GRETZKY WAS A BOY
YOU WERE IN HIS DREAMS

CHORUS
TIME WAS SURE ON YOUR SIDE
PERFECTION YOU DISPLAYED
# (A LEGEND ON TWO BLADES)
AND NOW YOU SKATE ON
AND WE CELEBRATE THOSE DAYS

SOLO

AND NOW YOU SKATE ON
AND WE CELEBRATE THOSE DAYS

YOU SHOWED US HOW
TO BE A LEGEND UP SO HIGH
AND HOW TO BE A GROUNDED
AND AN ALL AROUND NICE GUY

YOU SHOWED US HOW
IF A PROBLEM DID PERSIST
HOW TO USE AN ELBOW
OR THOSE PULVARIZING FIST

CHORUS

YOU SHOWED US HOW
TO BE A HUSBAND AND A DAD
GRANDFATHER AND A GENTLEMEN
FOR THIS, WER’E NOT SAD

WE CELEBRATE YOUR LIFE
AND ALSO YOUR GREAT WIFE

AND NOW YOU SKATE ON
TO A PEACEFUL FROZEN POND
