The Lyrics

Excuse me, can I have the attention of the class for a second? (OK, Mike, but that's all!)
Hello, honey, it's me!
What did you think when...
Hey! There's a great song on the radio!
Where was I? Oh yeah.
I was telling you about my...
Hey! Where did the time go?

Remember how we listend to the radio
and I said, "That's the place to be."
But I could never stick with a station 'cause
of big variety.
It was rock one minute, classical the next
and the dial I spun around.
It's been eight years since you left me, babe.
And I know why you let me down.

I am the morning deejay
at WADD!
(ADD!)
Playing all the hits for you
until they distract me!
The bright good-morning voice...
Hey, here's one I've never seen!
Feeling I can't concentrate
on anything I've seen.

The drinking I did didn't help at all.
Attention span went low.
Distracted by any old sound
(sound)
so they let me go.
So I drifted on down to a mind-train workshop
to get off my bad status quo.
Now I've worked my way back here again
to a three-minute-song show.
That's all I can take, you know.

I am the morning deejay
at WADD!
(ADD!)
Playing all the hits for you
until they distract me!
The bright good-morning voice...
Hey, here's one I've never seen!
Feeling I can't concentrate
on anything I've seen.

I've getting extra help with the vitamin tabs:
B-complex and A and C.
You should hear me talkin' to the little children:
They don't know what to make of me.
They got a "spot" -- that's what they call an ad
begging me to give it a play.
It's for Planters Peanuts, and I know I've got the guts
but attention I just cannot pay...

Sometimes I get this crazy dream
that I just take off in my car.
But I cannot think through the driver's test
so I ain't going far.
I've been thinking that I should stop this jocking
and try a new career.
Or maybe I should settle down
and face my lasting fear...

Okay, honey, I see.
You really can't count on me.
Sure, old girl, I understand.
You don't have to... Hey!
That's my parking spot there, man!

(WADD!)
(WADD!)
(WAD... )
(WAD... )
(WADDDDD!)

I am the morning deejay
at WADD!
(ADD!)
Playing all the hits for you
until they distract me!
The bright good-morning voice...
Hey, here's one I've never seen!
Feeling I can't concentrate
on anything I've seen.

I am the morning deejay
at WADD!
(ADD!)
WADD!
(ADD!)
WADD!
(ADD!)
(repeat 'til fade)
I looked it up: There is currently no radio station, AM or FM, with the call letters WADD.
