Songtekst

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 to be'
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

[chorus]:
I am the morning DJ at W*O*L*D
Playing all the hits for you, wherever you may be
The bright good-morning voice who's heard but never seen
Feeling all of forty-five, going on fifteen

The drinking I did on my last big gig, it made my voice go low
They said that they liked the younger sound when they let me go
So I drifted on down to Tulsa, Oklahoma to do me a late night talk show
Now I've worked my way down home again, here to Boise, Idaho
That's how this business goes

[chorus]

I've been making extra money doing high school sock hops
I'm a big time guest MC
You should hear me talking to the little children
And listen what they say to me
I got a spot on the top of my head, just begging for a new toupee
There's a tire around my belt from sitting, Mama
But it's never gonna go away

Sometimes I get this crazy dream
That I just take off in my car
But you can travel on ten thousand miles and still stay where you are
I've been thinking that I should stop disk jockeying
And start that record store
Maybe I could settle down if you'd take me back once more

Okay Honey, I see
I guess he's better than me
Sure, Old Girl, I understand
You don't have to worry, I'm such a happy man

W*O*L*D, W*O*L*D, W*O*L, W*O*L

[chorus]

I am the morning DJ at W*O*L*D,
W*O*L*D [repeats]
