Song Lyrics

I heard you on my wireless back in `52

Lying awake intent on tuning in on you

If I was young it didn`t stop you coming through

Oh oh

They took the credit for your second symphony

Rewritten by machine on new technology

And now I understand the supernova scene

Oh oh

I met the children

Oh oh

What did you tell them

Video killed the radio star (x2)

In my mind and in my car

We can`t rewind we`ve gone too far

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 oh

You were the first one

Oh oh

You were the last one

Video killed the radio star (x2)

In my mind and in my car

We can`t rewind we`ve gone too far

Too far!

Alright

Video killed the radio star (x2)

It`s 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 this VCR

You are the radio star (x2)

Video killed the radio star (x7)

Cause video killed that radio star, yes it did
