The Lyrics

Notice, John Chancellor, Frank Reynolds, Max Robinson, Chet Huntley, and David Brinkley have died. But there great news dudes. Here's a funny song in the tune of a Billy Joel Song.
What's the matter that Walter Cronkie's wearing
"Can you tell that your image's to wide?"
Maybe I should buy John Chancellor's glasses?
"Welcome to the age of Living Color"
Where have you watch the news at six, honey?
Then dress trashy like Frank Reynolds, and money
Everybody talkin' about CNN
And it's still television news to me

What's the matter with Frank Reynolds' hair
"Can you tell he's needs a haircut?"
Should I look like Max Robinson?
"Are you going to buy Afro Sheen?"
Nowadays there's no teletypes
Your best's bet like Peter Jennings
Hot news, cool blues, even it's old dudes
It's still television news to me

Oh, it doesn't matter to watch Robert MacNeil
And also Jim Lehrer on the PBS channel
Theres a new show in town
But you can get the sound of the news in a tv set...
Aimed at one network

How about a news with Dan Rather
And Roger Mudd needs to put mudd on his armpit
"You could be like Jane Pauley
If you have to watch TODAY
Don't waste your money to look like Tom Brokaw
You get more privledge from the late Huntley/Brinkley"
Next story, new report, commercial break, anyways
It's still television news to me

What's the matter that the telepromter I'm seeing
"Did you misspell a word?"
Should I try to win a emmy
"If you know you're the popular news groove
Don't know about that Brit Hume dude
All you need's looks like Bernard Shaw and Wolf Blitzer
Next story, new report, commercial break, anyways
It's still television news to me
Everybody talkin' about CNN
And it's still television news to me.
