Back to Am Radio lyrics

AM Radio

{K exchange Los Angeles
Portions of the day's programming are reproduced by means
Of electrical transcriptions or tape recordings}

The V.C.R. and the D.V.D.
There wasn't none of that crap back in 1970
We didn't know about a world wide web
It was a whole different game being played back when I was a kid

You wanna get down in a cool way?
Picture yourself on a beautiful day
Big bell bottoms and groovy long hair
Just a walking in style with a portable C D player

No, no, you would listen to the music on the AM radio
Yeah, you could hear the music on the AM radio

Flashback to '72 another summer in the neighborhood
Hanging out with nothing to do
Sometimes we'd go driving around in my sister's Pinto
Cruisin' with the windows rolled down

We'd listen to the radio station
We were too damn poor to buy the 8 track tapes
There wasn't any good time to want to be inside
My mom would want to watch that TV all god damn night

I'd be in bed with the radio on
I would listen to it all night long
Just to hear my favorite song

You'd have to wait but you could hear it on the AM radio
Yeah, you could hear the music on the AM radio

I can still hear mama say
"Boy turn that radio down!"
Oh mom that show again
I don't wanna watch that show
Can we watch good times and cheeku on the net
Or something cool, turn it off

Things changed back in '75
We were all growing up on the in and the outside
We got in trouble with the police man
We got busted getting high in the back of my friend's van

I remember 1977, I started going to concerts
And I saw the Led Zeppelin
I got a guitar on a Christmas day I dreamed that Jimmy Page
Would come to Santa Monica and teach me to play

There isn't any other place that I need to go
There isn't anything that I need to know
I did not learn from the radio

Yeah, when things get stupid and I just don't know
Where to find my happy
I listen to the music from the AM radio

You could hear the music on the AM radio
You could hear the music on the AM radio

I like pop and I like soul
I like rock but I never liked disco on the AM radio
I like pop and I like soul
I like rock but I never liked disco on the AM radio

We like pop, we like soul, we like to rock
But we never liked disco
We like pop, we like soul, we like to rock
But we never liked disco
We like pop, we like soul, we like to rock
But we never liked disco

No we never liked disco
No we never liked disco
No we never liked disco
