(Ooh, aww) Radio
You could hear the music on the AM radio (AM radio)

The VCR and the DVD
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

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 CD player (no)

No, you would listen to the music on the AM radio
(AM radio, AM radio)
Yeah, you could hear the music on the AM radio
(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 goddamn 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 (AM radio, AM radio)
Yeah, you could hear the music on the AM radio
(AM radio)

I can still hear Mama say "Boy, turn that radio down!"

[Spoken]: Aw mom, not that show again! I don't want to watch that show.
Can't we watch "Good Times" or "Chico And The Man," or something cool?
Turn it off
(Turn it off, turn it off, 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 policeman
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 Christmas Day
I dreamed that Jimmy Page would come to Santa Monica and teach me to play, play
Teach me to play, play
Teach me to play, play, hey yeah

There isn't any place that I need to go
There isn't anything that I need to know
That 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 on the AM radio (AM radio)
You could hear the music on the AM radio (AM radio)
You could hear the music on the

I like pop (AM radio, AM radio)
I like soul
I like rock
But I never liked disco

I like pop (AM radio, AM radio)
I like soul
I like rock
But I never liked disco
(AM radio, AM radio)

We like pop (AM radio, AM radio)
We like soul
We like rock
But we never liked disco

We like pop (AM radio, AM radio)
We like soul
We like rock
But we never liked disco

We like pop (AM radio, AM radio)
We like soul
We like rock
But we never liked disco

No, I never liked disco (AM radio)
No, I never liked disco (AM radio)
No, I never liked disco (AM radio)
No, I never liked (AM radio) disco (AM radio)
No (AM radio) oh (AM radio)
Oh (AM radio, AM radio)
