Tom Flannery - If I Could Talk Like David Brinkley lyrics

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?"
