Video Killed The Radio Star Lyrics

I heard you on the wireless back in '52
Lying awake intently tuning in on you
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through
[Oh-a-oh]

They took the credit for your second symphony
Rewritten by machine on new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see

[Oh-a-oh]
I met your children
[Oh-a-oh]
What did you tell them?

[Video killed the radio starVideo killed the radio star]
Pictures came and broke your heart
[Oh-a-a-a oh]

And now we meet in an abandoned studio
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago
And you remember the jingles used to go:

[Oh-a-oh]
You were the first one
[Oh-a-oh]
You were the last one

[Video killed the radio starVideo killed the radio star]
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind, we've gone too far
[Oh-a-a-a ohOh-a-a-a oh]

[Video killed the radio starVideo killed the radio star]
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind, we've gone too far
Pictures came and broke your heart
Put the blame on VTR...

[You are the radio starYou are the radio starVideo killed the radio starVideo killed the radio starVideo killed the radio starVideo killed the radio star]
You are the radio star
[Video killed the radio starVideo killed the radio star]
You are the radio star
[Video killed the radio starVideo killed the radio star]
You are the radio star
[Video killed the radio starVideo killed the radio star]
You are the radio star

[Oh-a-oh, oh-a-oh...]

Idiots killed the lyricist star. And replaced him with Used French-Fry Oil. In my brain and on a czar we can't replace we're too bizarre. But that's OK, because everybody's on Hard Narcotics anyway
