Carmen Sandiego and Rockappella

For all both of you on earth who may not be familiar with Carmen Sandiego, or the late, great, Lynne Thigpen.

Sorry I couldn't find a better copy of the final title theme, but hey, it's better than nuthin'.

And a pretty cool video featuring Lost's Kate Austin and Rockappella's Carmen theme song.

And if you want to sing along (and how could you NOT?), here's the lyrics...

Well she sneaks around the world from Kiev to Carolina,
She's a sticky-fingered filcher from Berlin down to Belize,
She'll take you for a ride on a slow boat to China,
Tell me where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?

Steal their Seoul in South Korea, make Antarctica cry Uncle,
From the Red Sea to Greenland they'll be singing the blues,
Well they never Arkansas her steal the Mekong from the jungle,
Tell me where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?

She go from Nashville to Norway, Bonaire to Zimbabwe,
Chicago to Czechoslovakia and back!

Well she'll ransack Pakistan and run a scam in Scandinavia,
Then she'll stick 'em up Down Under and go pick-pocket Perth,
She put the Miss in misdemeanor when she stole the beans from Lima,
Tell me where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?
Oh tell me where in the world is... Oh tell me where can she be?

Ooh, Botswana to Thailand, Milan via Amsterdam,
Mali to Bali, Ohio, Oahu...!

Well she glides around the globe and she'll flimflam every nation,
She's a double-dealing diva with a taste for thievery,
Her itinerary's loaded up with moving violations,
Tell me where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?

My kind of girl.

Y'know, I've never seen a single episode of Lost, but after that video (which was very very well done) I may just have to catch up.

Kate Austin sure seems like a worthy successor to Carmen SanDiego.

And she's frickin' HAWT!
