`ve been driving 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 half past four
And I`m shifting gear

When she`s lonely
And the longing gets too much
She sends a cable coming in from above
Don`t need no phone at all
We`ve got a thing that`s called:
Radar love
We`ve got a wave in the air
Radar love

The radio`s playing some forgotten song
Brenda Lee`s: "Coming on strong"
The road`s got me hypnotised
And I`m speeding into a new sunrise

When I get lonely,
And I`m sure I`ve had enough
She sends her comfort
Coming in from above
Don`t need no letters at all
We`ve got a thing that`s called: Radar love
We`ve got a line in the sky

No more speed I`m almost there
Gotta keep cool, now gotta take care
Last car to pass, here I go!
And the line of cars drove down real slow
And the radio played that forgotten song
Brenda Lee`s Coming on strong
And the newsman sang his same song
One more Radar love has gone


The song is o.a. gecoverd door Def Leppard, James Last, Carlos Santana en vele andere. Het lied wordt als gevolg van zijn thema en de groove beschouwd als de ultieme 'carsong'.
