Best Hot News Anchor: Carmen Harlan



(Sung to the tune of "She's a Lady" by Tom Jones)

Well, she's all that we could want,
She's the kind we like to flaunt,
And watch on TeeVee.
We love to see her face,
She's got style, she's got grace,
She's a beauty!

She's our anchor,
Whoa-wo-woh, she's our anchor,
Talkin' about that Carmen Harlan,
And she makes us feel fine.

She was born here in Detroit,
And her skill level's adroit,
At 6 and 'leven.
She's always a good sport,
Whether teaming up with Mort,
Or now with Devin.

She's our anchor,
Whoa-wo-woh, she's our anchor,
Talkin' about that charmin' Carmen,
And she makes us feel fine.


She always wins "Best Of" awards,
And that does not surprise us;
She wears hot pants to fireworks,
And that delights us guys-es.
She's there for all the big events,
And never tells us lies-es.
The living symbol of DIV,
Every single daaay-ay-ay-ay!
She's the queen of nightly news,
Never gives us her own views,
And that's a blessing;
Of all the folks on Channel 4,
She's the one that we adore,
And we're confessin'.

She's our anchor,
Whoa-wo-woh, she's our anchor,
Talkin' about our Carmen Harlan,
And she makes Detroit shine.
