Lyrics

Listen to the Radio

Saturday night all my friends went to parties
I’d hurry home in time to tune in
Search for the station, adjust the antenna
And wait for the show to begin

Hoping that I’d get to hear all my favorites
Never knew what mix of songs there would be
I couldn’t afford to go out and buy records
The DJ played them for me

I would listen to the radio
I would listen to the radio
I would listen to the radio
I would listen to the radio

So many songs I’d have never discovered
I couldn’t wait to hear what they would play
Those Saturday nights and that music were sacred
They made me who I am today

I would listen to the radio
I would listen to the radio
I would listen to the radio
I would listen to the radio

These days it’s easy to make your own playlist
Listen to songs at the time you prefer
But you may not value what you never long for
And you mostly hear what you’ve already heard

I would listen to the radio
I would listen to the radio
I would listen to the radio
I would listen to the radio
