The Lyrics

Each night at ten
He interviews a star ev'ry week night
Like Ted Dansen
And maybe even Madeline Albright

He talks as though he drinks expensive wine
Dressed to impress!
He's sponsored by Helena Rubinstein

He's Charlie Rose!
He won and Emmy for his interviews
For half an hour
Watch what is touted "Great!" by the Daily News

He's from the South
He's got a charm out of "Gone with the Wind"
Like a Delta's mouth
He makes us wonder how the North did win

He's corresponds for 60 Minutes II
The Detroit Press
Says he's the "Master of the Interview"

He's a class act
He interviewed Madonna for Christ's sake
His kidney tract
Burns like it's been bitten by a snake

Sweet Charlie Rose!
One time he won a CableACE award
For all the power
It took to speak at length with Gerald Ford

Sweet Charlie Rose!
You sold your soul to Satan, didn't you?
And in her tower, of fire and gloom
She waits for you to join her on "The View"
