Israeli satirist, journalist and songwriter Didi Manosi passed away overnight Thursday at the age of 85 after a long battle with Parkinson's syndrome.

Among his well-known songs are "Bat Shishim" (60 Year Old Woman) that he wrote for the Givatron, "Mi SheHalam" (He Who Dreamed) that he wrote for Armed Corps band, "Li VeLach" (For Me and You) that was sung by Arik Einstein and Geula Nuni in the movie "Sallah Shabati."

He also wrote a satire column for Yediot Ahronot, and came up with several new words for the Hebrew language.

Manosi will be buried on Sunday in Kibbutz Geva.
