Video Killed the Radio Star - Lyrics

I heard you on my wireless back in '52
Lyin' awake intent on 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 supernova scene

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

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star

In my mind and in my car,
We can't rewind, we've gone too far
Whoa!
Oh-aoh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-aoh-oh-oh-oh

And now we meet in an abandoned studio
You 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 star
Video killed the radio star

It's in my mind and in my car,
We can't rewind, we've gone too far
Too far!

Oh-aoh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-aoh-oh-oh-oh

Alright

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
It's in my mind and in my car,
We can't rewind, we've gone too far

Pictures came and broke your heart
So put all the blame on VCR

You are... the radio star Video killed the radio star Video killed that radio star, yes, it did
