Chris Farley Song | Season 44 Episode 19

Adam Sandler

[Starts with Adam Sandler on SNL stage playing an acoustic guitar.] [He starts singing]

First time I saw him he was sweeter than honey
plaid jacket and belt too tight and he wasn’t even being funny
then he cart wheeled around the room and slow danced with the cleaning lady
he was a one man party
you know I’m talking about, I’m talking about my friend Chris Farley

[Picture of Chris appears in the screen][Cheers and applaud]

On Saturday night my man would always deliver
whether he was a bumblebee girl or living in a band down by the river
he loved bass and ditka dance and chippendale’s with Swayze
When every places, coffee with Folger’s he went full on crazy
As sexy as cat girl and meat loaf in the band
without him we had no lunch lady in lunch lady land
you know I’m thinking about, thinking about my boy Chris Farley

After a show he drink a quarter Jack Daniels
then stick the bottle right up his ass
but hungover as hell that catholic boy
always showed up to morning mad
We told him slow down or you’ll end up like Belushi and Candy
Said those guys are my heroes that’s all fine in dandy
I ain’t making that stuff up that’s the truth about my boy Chris Farley

I saw him in the office crying with his headphones on
listening to a KC and the Sunshine band song
I said bloody hell is that making you so sad
then he laughed and said just thinking about my dad
The last big hang we had was at Timmy Meadow’s wedding party
we laughed all night long all because of Farley

But a few months later the party came to an end
we flew out to Madison to bury our friend
nothing was harder than saying goodbye
except watching Chris’s father have his turn to cry
Buddy, you’ve moved on but you still bring us so much joy
make my kids laugh with your YouTube clips of Tommy boy

And when they ask me who’s the funniest guy I ever knew
I tell them hands down without a doubt it’s you
Yeah, I miss hanging out watching you try to get laid
but most of all I miss watching you torture Spade
You’re a legend, you owned it, but I still wish you were here with me
and we would get on a plane to go and shoot Grown Ups 3

Yeah, life ain’t the same without you boy
and that’s why I’m singing about, I’m singing about my boy Crhis Farley
and if we make enough noise maybe he’ll hear us
Give it up for the great Chris Farley.
