I heard you on the wireless back in fifty-two
Lying awake intent on tuning in on you
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through
Oh-a, oh

They took your credit for your second symphony
Rewritten by machines and new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see
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

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

You 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-aho, oh
Oh-a-aho, 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 down the blame on VTR

You are the radio star
You are the radio star

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

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

Video killed the radio star
You are the radio star
