When she was young, she’d listen to the radio
Waitin’ for her favorite song
When it played, she’d sing along.
When I was young, I’d listen to the radio
Waitin’ to hear her
When she came on, I’d sing along
Just like she did.
In your youth, a few weeks ago, you’ve never had to wait
to hear your favorite song
to hear your favorite artist
to sing along
It’s never yesterday.
It’s not even today.
It’s always Right Now.
And Right Now Once More.
And once more after that.
Right. Fucking. Now.
We’re doing 75 miles an hour down the highway and a song pops into your head. You, Digital Native, are only a few clicks of your radio dial away from every song ever recorded.
“What’s a radio? Why do they call it a dial?”
That’s when we get to the part
Where you’re breakin’ my heart.
Shooby doo lang lay, kid.
Shooby doo lang lay.
