The Lyrics

I can watch Matt & Meredith
And they are joined by Al Roker
I can watch Matt & Meredith
Telling the news, telling the jokes

When It's early in the morning and it's 7:00
I put on NBC watching from the dock
When we go to it you can meet them all
We got to be awake we can't let it fall

I can watch Matt & Meredith
And they are joined by Al Roker
I can watch Matt & Meredith
Telling the news, telling the jokes

Al Roker is the weatherman
Here's what's happening in the neck of the woods
Katie Couric was one of them
Willard Scott and Gene Shalit

I can watch Matt & Meredith
And they are joined by Al Roker
I can watch Matt & Meredith
Telling the news, telling the jokes

I can watch Matt & Meredith
And they are joined by Al Roker
I can watch Matt & Meredith
Telling the news, telling the jokes

When we go to it you can meet them all
We got to be awake we can't let it fall

I can watch Matt & Meredith
And they are joined by Al Roker
I can watch Matt & Meredith
Telling the news, telling the jokes

I can watch Matt & Meredith
And they are joined by Al Roker
I can watch Matt & Meredith
Telling the news, telling the jokes

I can watch Matt & Meredith
And they are joined by Al Roker
I can watch Matt & Meredith
Telling the news, telling the jokes
