The Lyrics

About the emergency broadcast system noise....
I turn the radio on and hear that horrid sound
I turn it off, turn on the tv and hear it again, too loud
Then I hear it broadcast real loud all around my neighborhood
I'm surrounded by this noise, it can't do me no good

No way

Turn the radio down, I hate that sound
I wish the noise would go away
But it's still alive, It makes me lose control
Yeah, yeah
I hear it all the time, and go crazy
Fever's high even with the volume low
It takes me over the edge
And makes me lose control

Now I keep hearing them say, "This is only a test"
And that they'll use it in emergencies, but I need a rest
A rest from hearing that awful noise all the time, it really bugs me
The terrible sound they use is so annoying

Hate hearing it

Turn the radio down, I hate that sound
I wish the noise would go away
But it's still alive, It makes me lose control
Yeah, yeah
I hear it all the time, and go crazy
Fever's high even with the volume low
It takes me over the edge
And makes me lose control

You wonder why they haven't changed the noise in all this time
You know that it makes me feel that I am just losing my mind
Oh yeah
And then they played that maddening tone again
And I just can't remember when
I didn't hear it this often
The feelings return when it never ends

Turn the radio down, I hate that sound
I wish the noise would go away
But it's still alive, It makes me lose control
Yeah, yeah
I hear it all the time, and go crazy
Fever's high even with the volume low
It takes me over the edge
And makes me lose control

Drives me crazy

Turn the radio down, I hate that sound
I wish the noise would go away
But it's still alive, It makes me lose control

I hear it all the time, and go crazy
Fever's high even with the volume low
It takes me over the edge
And makes me lose control

No, not again

Turn the radio down, I hate that sound
I wish the noise would go away
But it's still alive, It makes me lose control
Yeah, yeah
I hear it all the time, and go crazy
Fever's high even with the volume low
It takes me over the edge
And makes me lose control

I released the original in the 80s, not the 70s. Tisk tisk.
