Darren McGavin 2/24/06 Ralphie's Dad

Darren McGavin who played the Dad in the Christmas classic "A Christmas Story" passed away. Granted he does fall below the Branigan line but he is in one of the all time great Christmas movie. Here is goes for Ralphie's dad.

Goodbye Darren McGavin
Holiday audiences knew you well
You played the dad in Christmas Story
You son Ralphie sure would tell
You crawled out of nowhere
You were a winner and a man
You won the special prize
Till if got broken once again

And it seemed to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Change that tire With Ralphie
He says the F word once again
And it seemed like I did know you
When I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Christmas dinner of Chinese ever did.
