Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Radio Radio  Elvis Costello

I was t[E]uning in the shine on the light[B] night dial
Doing [A]anything my radio advised[E].
With every one of those l[B]ate night stations
Playing s[A]ongs, bringing tears to my eyes.[C#m]
I was s[A]eriously thinking about h[B]iding the receiver
When the[A/C#] switch broke 'cause it's old[B/D#].
[A/E]They're saying things that I can h[B/F#]ardly believe.
They really th[B]ink we're getting out of contr[E]ol.
[E]Radio is the s[C#m]ound salvation.
Radio is cl[B]eaning up the nation.
They s[A]ay you better l[E]isten to the v[B]oice of r[E]eason.
But they don't g[A]ive you any c[E]hoice 'cause they t[B]hink that it's t[C#m]reason.
So you had b[B]etter do as you are told.[C#m]
You better l[B]isten to the radio.[E]
|E B7 E|B |E B7 E|B |

[Am]I want to bite the h[E]and that feeds me.
[Am]I want to bite that h[E]and so badly.
[C#m]I want to make them wish they'd never[B7] seen me.

Some of my friends sit around every evening
And they worry about the times ahead.
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference
And the promise of an early bed.
You better shut up or get cut up;
They don't wanna hear about it.
It's only inches on the reel-to-reel.
And the radio is in the hands of such a lot of fools
Trying to anaesthetise the way that you feel.


[E]   [B7]   [E]  [B]                             
Wonderful r[E]adio [B7]   [E]  [B]
Marvelous r[E]adio [B7]   [E]  [B]
Wonderful r[E]adio [B7]   [E]  [B]
Radio, r[E]adio.[B7]   [E]  [B]
Radio, r[E]adio.[B7]   [E]  [B]
