The Lyrics

This parody is dedicated to the memory of Peter Jennings who passed away recently of lung cancer. I've tried my best writing this parody, here it goes.In loving memory of PETER JENNINGS 1938-2005
First thing I watch tonight
I wish I may, I wish I read
Have I watch WORLD NEWS TONIGHT

A journalist's first name was Peter
His last name was Jennings too
Has to find someplace on TV
That was on ABC

He was born in Canada
Who later become an American citzen
Peter Jennings was a great journalist,
And a true TV legend

First thing I watch tonight
I wish I may, I wish I read
Have I watch WORLD NEWS TONIGHT

Here's a wish for someone out there
Here's to you for the memories
Peter Jennings was a great journalist,
And a true TV legend

First thing I watch tonight
I wish I may, I wish I read
First thing (First thing)
I watch tonight (I watch tonight)
I wish I may, I wish I read
I wish I may, I wish I read
He was great on WORLD NEWS TONIGHT
