Video Killed the Radio Star Lyrics

I heard you on my wireless back in fifty two
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

Re-written by machine on new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see, oh a oh
I met our children, oh a oh
What did you tell them?

Video killed the radio star
Video 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

Your were the first one, oh a oh
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 a a a oh
Oh a a a 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 radio star
You are a radio star

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
