Video Killed the Radio Star

Verse 1Trevor Horn

I heard you on the wireless back in '52
Lying awake, intently tuning in on you
If I was young, it didn't stop you coming through


They took the credit for your second symphony
Rewritten by machine on new technology
And now I understand the problems you could see

Before chorus 1Trevor Horn, Debi Doss & Linda Jardim


I met your children


What did you tell 'em?

Chorus 1Trevor Horn, Debi Doss & Linda Jardim


Pictures came and broke your heart
Oh-a-a-a-oh

Verse 2Trevor Horn, Debi Doss & Linda Jardim

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

Before chorus 2Trevor Horn, Debi Doss & Linda Jardim


You were the first one


You were the last one

Chorus 2Trevor Horn, Debi Doss & Linda Jardim


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

Chorus 3Trevor Horn, Debi Doss & Linda Jardim


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
