Lyrics I HEARD YOU
ON THE WIRELESS
BACK IN FIFTY TWO,
LYING AWAKE
INTENTLY
TUNING IN
ON YOU.
IF I WAS YOUNG,
IT DIDN'T STOP YOU
COMIN' THROUGH.
OOH WA-OOH-WA.

THEY TOOK THE CREDIT
FOR YOUR SECOND SYMPHONY,
REWRITTEN BY MACHINE
ON NEW TECHNOLOGY,
AND NOW I UNDERSTAND
THE PROBLEM
YOU CAN SEE.
OOH WA OOH-WA.
I MET YOUR CHILDREN,
OOH WA OOH-WA.
WHAT DID YOU TELL THEM?

VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR,
VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR.
PICTURES CAME
AND BROKE YOUR HEART,
OH OH OH OH 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.
OOH WA OOH-WA.
YOU WERE THE FIRST ONE,
OOH WA OOH-WA.
YOU WERE THE LAST ONE.

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,
OH OH OH OH OH
OH OH OH OH OH,
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.
PICTURES CAME
AND BROKE YOUR HEART,
PUT THE BLAME ON VCR
YOU ARE A VIDEO STAR,
YOU ARE A VIDEO STAR.

VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR,
VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR.
VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR,
VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR.
