ONE DAY WHEN I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD

MY MOTHER TOOK ME DOWNTOWN

TO THIS NEW GROCERY STORE

THERE WERE PEOPLE STANDING AROUND

THE MAYOR SAID, "HEREíS SOMEONE

I THINK YOU WILL ALL KNOW."

"HEíS GOING TO CUT THE RIBBON,

MAYBE YOUíVE HEARD OF HIS SHOW."

I JUST COULDNíT BELIEVE MY EYES.

THE GREATEST VOICE IíD EVER HEARD.

THERE HE STOOD BEFORE US ALL.

I NEVER BELIEVED HE WAS A NERD.

THE DAY I MET ANSON WILLIAMS

MY FAVORITE FROM HAPPY DAYS

HE PLAYED POTSIE WEBBER

DURING THAT 50íS CRAZE

I WALKED RIGHT UP TO HIM

AND ASKED HIM FOR AN AUTOGRAPH

HE PUSHED ME ASIDE

AND THEN I HEARD HIM START TO LAUGH.

"IíVE GOT TO GET TO MY NEXT

GROCERY STORE GRAND OPENING.

"I DONíT HAVE TIME TO WASTE,

AND THEREíS NO WAY THAT IíM GONNA SING."

THAT WAS WHEN I REALIZED

MY WHOLE WORLD FELL APART

JUST AS HE HAD CUT THAT RIBBON

HE HAD CUT STRAIGHT THROUGH MY HEART

THE DAY I MET ANSON WILLIAMS

MY FAVORITE FROM HAPPY DAYS

HE PLAYED POTSIE WEBBER

DURING THAT 50íS CRAZE

MY MOTHER HELD ME TIGHT

AND SAID, "MY DEAR, NOW DONíT YOU CRY."

"SHOWS GET CANCELLED ALL THE TIME,

CAREERS OF ACTORS GO DRY."

"IíM SURE ONE DAY MR. WILLIAMS

WILL FIND HIMSELF OUT OF WORK."

"THEN HEíLL BE SORRY FOR THE TIMES

THAT HE ACTED LIKE A JERK."

I GREW UP A LOT THAT DAY.

MAYBE ITíS JUST AS WELL.

WHEREVER ANSON IS NOW,

I HOPE HIS SOUL BURNS IN HELL.

THE DAY I MET ANSON WILLIAMS

MY FAVORITE FROM HAPPY DAYS

HE PLAYED POTSIE WEBBER

DURING THAT 50íS CRAZE

NOW WHEN I WATCH THAT SHOW IN RERUNS

ANSON IS JUST A GHOST

I STILL ENJOY HENRY WINKLER

BUT NOW I LOVE DONNY MOST.
