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'd left you babe Let me tell you 'bout what's gone down. Well I am the mornin' DJ on W O L D Playin' all the hits for you wherever you may be The bright good-mornin' voice who's heard but never seen If you keep on singing on alone like that You're gonna turn the little girls off. I've been making extra money to a 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 am the morning DJ at WOLD-D-D-D-D-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 45 going on 15. The drinking I did on my last big gig It made my voice go low They said that they like the young sounds (Sounds, sounds, sounds) 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.
