Lyrics

They took the credit for your second symphony
Rewritten by machine and new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see

Oh-a oh-a
I met your children
Oh-a oh-a
What did you tell them?

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Pictures came and broke your heart
Oh-a-a-a oh

And now we meet in an abandoned studio
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago
And you remember the jingles used to go

Oh-a oh-a
You were the first one
Oh-a oh-a
You are the last one

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind, we've gone too far

Oh-a-aho oh
Oh-a-aho oh
