If I could talk like David Brinkley
man I'd have it made
those pauses while you wait for more
no-bullshit is conveyed
they don't make Brinkley's anymore
soon they'll all be dead and gone
replaced by those who had surgery
to look more like Paula Zahn

If I could talk like David Brinkley
and use a pen like him too
not as merely a jagged edge
with an agenda to pursue
but as a tool of honor
to find the truth that may lay
beyond the easy reach of those
who are paid to stay away

I just heard that he died today
I just heard that he died today
I hope he's listening now
I hope he's listening now

If I could talk like David Brinkley
and if I looked like him as well
CNN would never hire me
but then they can go to hell
I want my news from a man who lived
not to say "hey, look at me"
but one who said "no, look at them
they're the story don't you see?"
