The Lyrics

"Ted Koppel" sings "NightLine" to celebrate continuation of NightLine following the failure of David Letterman and ABC to agree on terms for Letterman to move to ABC to replace NightLine (early 2002) Song parody accompanied by "gif" animation at www.PoliSat.Com. Vocalist: Jim Wrenn
.Koppel sings "Nightline" (My Way)

And now, to NightLine's friends
I'm glad to say, "It won't be curtains"
That clown, whose name is Dave,
won't steal my show, it's fin'lly certain

I've shot a lot of bull
since Kho-mei-nee claimed he was Yahweh
They dare not tell Kop-pull
to hit the highway

Faux pas, I've made a few
But then again, no more than Jennings
I flubbed a line or two
but muddled through by condescending

I planned each show, of course--
each frightened guest for Nightline airways
and guests I always forced
to answer my way

Though there were times, I'm sure your knew
They cut me off ... when-I missed cues
But unlike Dan, I didn't pout
I didn't fuss or walk right out
so after all, when ratings fall
they wouldn't hiiiirrree Dave

What if... my ratings die?
If Jay or Dave they still are viewing
Perhaps, I'll have-to try
some naked news to get 'em viewing
And yes, I'd stoop to that
I'd show my bod, not in a shy way
For sure, the babes would clap
to see me side-ways

A naked-news host... shows what he's got
to show his all by hiding naught
so viewer babes will surely feel
like teenage girls who love to squeal
They'll mail to show to let me know
They'll do it my way
