Now my life can go on, I think. Boy, it's been hell I tell you. You don't know what this means to me. You don't know what this means to my kids. It's fantastic. I've got some people to thank. I'll do it quickly, I promise. My friends at Disney who did all the work on "Tarzan": Bonnie Arnold, Kevin Lima, Chris Buck, producer and directors. Chris Montan, who is just an incredible guy, music producer. Peter Schneider, Tom Schumacher, brilliant minds. Mr. Glen Keane and all the animators of course, who did such a wonderful job. Mark Mancina, who did a wonderful job on the score. Rob Cavallo, who helped me produce the record. My manager Tony Smith, my agent Hilary Shor. My family, my lovely wife Orianne. Man, this is tough. I didn't think it was going to be this tough. My wife Orianne [inaudible] and my wonderful kids, Lily, Joely and Simon, who really wrote this song for me. The Academy, thank you for making all the films that I have watched and enjoyed, and thanks for having me here. And this is fantastic. Thank you.
