"Edam Anchorman" as written by Huw Bunford, Cian Ciaran, Dafydd Ieuan, Guto Pryce and Gruff Rhys....
Took no notice of you until
I got to know you when I was home ill
I had the measles whilst you had a tan
You scanned the Autocue with sincere mind

Edam anchorman
You live in disgrace with a plastic face
Edam anchorman
Just taking the can from the staff around the van
Edam anchorman
Edam anchorman

I bought a dagger and a picture of you
For fourteen dollars and ninety-two (cents)
Revenge for all those unanswered calls (just remember)
I can see you but you can't see me

Edam anchorman
You live in disgrace with a plastic face
Edam anchorman
Glowing in beige on the national stage
Edam anchorman
Edam anchorman

We'll only be there for you
We know all the shit you do
Aaah! Aaah!
Edam, edam
Such a sinister bloke came in
On the telephone, oh oh
Aaah! Aaah!
Edam, edam

Edam anchorman
You live in disgrace with a plastic face
Edam anchorman
Just taking the can from the staff around the van
Edam anchorman
Edam anchor
Edam anchorman

    General CommentI've been wondering about this song. I know it is meant to be funny but I was wondering if it was based off a Dutch newsman. Does anyone know? My Dutch teacher at my school has a brother who was a very handsome anchorman there and, of course, I am dying to know if this song could have been inspired by him because he was a real 'pretty boy' type and would fit the song. But I think news stations are out of the city of Hilversom, not Edam but then, Edam would work better in a song, less syllables. Anybody know anything?
