everclear - 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

You wanna get down
In a cool way?

Just picture yourself on a beautiful day

With the big bell bottoms
And groovy long hair
Justa walking in style
With a portable CD player

No...you would listen
To the music on
The AM radio

Yeah...you could hear the music
The AM radio

Flashback to '72
Another summer in the neighborhood
Hanging out with nothing to do

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 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!"

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
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
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)

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

(On the AM radio)

I never liked disco...no I never liked disco
