The last DJ
Well you can't turn him into a company man
You can't turn him into a whore
And the boys upstairs just don't understand anymore
Well the top brass don't like him talking so much,
And he won't play what they say to play
And he don't want to change what don't need to change

Baby, if you've ever wondered,
Wondered whatever became of me,
I'm living on the air in Cincinnati,
Cincinnati, WKRP.

Got kind of tired packing and unpacking,
Town to town and up and down the dial
Maybe you and me were never meant to be,
Just maybe think of me once in awhile.

I'm at WKRP in Cincinnati.

Invisible airwaves
Crackle with life
Bright antennae bristle
With the energy
Emotional feedback
On a timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond price
Almost free

Hello honey, it's me
What did you think when you heard me back on the radio?
What did the kids say when they knew it was their long lost daddy-o?
Remember how we listened to the radio
And I said `that's the place for me'
And how I got the job as an FM jock the day you married me?
We were two kids and i was was into am rock
But I just had to run around
It's been eight years since I left you babe
Let me tell you 'bout what's gone down
I am the morning DJ on W*O*L*D

Listen to the songs of the fathers and mothers and the many friends gone on before
Turn your radio on, turn your radio on, trun your radio on, turn your radio on
Some eternal morning we shall meet them over on the alleuia shore
Get in touch with God, turn your radio on

We all want to strut our stuff
And you really want to show your scars
Forget all about that macho shit
And learn how to play guitar
Play guitar, play guitar
Play guitar, oh yeah

Thinking that life has passed them by
Don't give up
Until you drink from the silver cup
And ride that highway in the sky

I wanna drive it all night long.

Kicks just keep gettin' harder to find,
And all your kicks ain't bringin' you peace of mind.
Before you find out it's too late, girl,
You better get straight.

I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind.

Now the race is on
and here comes pride in the backstretch
Heartaches goin' to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
My hearts out of the runnin'
True love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartache,
and the winner loses all

And it's run for the roses
As fast as you can
You fate is delivered
Your moment's at hand
It's the chance of a lifetime
In a lifetime of chance
And it's high time you joined
In the dance

Grab your coat,
And grab your hat,
Leave your worries on the doorstep.
Just direct your feet,
To the sunny side of the street.

Baby take off your coat, real slow
And take off your shoes - I'll take off your shoes
Baby take off your dress, yes yes yes

You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on
You can leave your hat on

Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream

When I'm watchin' my tv and a man comes on and tell me
How white my shirts can be
But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
The same cigarettes as me

We watch the shows, we watch the stars,
On videos for hours and hours,
We hardly need to use our ears,
How music changes through the years.

Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it
You play the guitar on the MTV
That ain't workin' that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' and chicks for free

Who draws the crowd and plays so loud, baby, it's the guitar man
Who's gonna steal the show, you know, baby, it's the guitar man
He can make you love, he can make you cry
He will bring you down and he'll get you high

Now roll them cases out and lift them amps
Haul them trusses down and get'em up them ramps
Cause when it comes to moving me
You guys are the champs
But when that last guitar's been packed away
You know that I still want to play

And it's music for money, but I'll do it for fun
Oh, I know how to do it, it's easily done
To stand on a stage doesn't make me afraid
I'm comfortable up there, it's gotten me laid
It always amazes me when I get paid.

So here am I doing all that I can do
You're paying, I'm playing, I'm grateful to you
Indoors and outdoors, at home and abroad
I sing these songs and you people applaud.
You haven't changed much, you still applaud.

Well, we're big rock singers
We got golden fingers
And we're loved everywhere we go (that sounds like us)
We sing about beauty and we sing about truth
At ten-thousand dollars a show (right)

And I love to get the chance to play (and sing it),
I figure it's about the happiest sound goin' down today.

Something to make us all happy
Do anything, take us out of this gloom
Sing a song, play guitar, make it snappy

With you gone, I'm alive,
Makes me feel like I took happy pills,
And time stood still.

"Life's just much too hard today,"
I hear every mother say
The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose
No more running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
They just helped you on your way, through your busy dying day.

Why don't we get drunk and screw
I just bought a water bed, it's filled up for me and you
They say you are a snuff queen
Honey I don't think that's true
So, why don't we get drunk and screw

Pick it Coral Reefers, here we go...

Well I gotta get drunk
And I sure do dread it
'Cause I know just what I'm gonna do
I'll start to spend my money
Calling everybody honey
And wind up singing the blues

I was sittin' in Miami pourin' blended whiskey down,
When this old gray black gentleman was cleanin' up the lounge.
There wasn't anyone around 'cept this old man and me,
The guy who ran the bar was watchin' "Ironsides" on TV.
Uninvited, he sat down and opened up his mind,
On old dogs and children and watermelon wine.

Now the rovin' gambler he was very bored
Tryin' to create a next world war
He found a promoter who nearly fell off the floor
He said "I never engaged in this kind of thing before
But yes I think it can be very easily done
We’ll just put some bleachers out in the sun
And have it on Highway 61

An ambulance finally came and took him to Riverside
I watched as they drove him away
And I thought of a girlfriend or a young wife
And a state trooper knocking in the middle of the night
To say your baby died in a wreck on the highway

No one knows what happened that day
How his car overturned in flames
But as they pulled him from the twisted wreck
With his dying breath, they heard him say
Tell Laura I love her, tell Laura I need her
Tell Laura not to cry
My love for her will never die

That fateful night the car was stalled upon the railroad track
I pulled you out and we were safe, but you went running back
Teen angel, can you hear me?
Teen angel, can you see me?
Are you somewhere up above?
And I am still your own true love?

I've been drivin' all night, my hand's wet on the wheel
There's a voice in my head that drives my heel
It's my baby callin', says I need you here
And it's a half past four and I'm shiftin' gear

With a four-barrel carb and a dual exhaust,
With 4.11 gears you can really get lost.
It's got safety tubes, but I ain't scared.
The brakes are good, tires fair.
