How many times did I hear it? How many times did they try?
To somehow break my spirit, to somehow make me die.
"Huey, you're odd, crazy and slow. Now much to look at-"
Well, maybe that's so. They tried so hard to drag me down low,
They didn't count on/count on-
The radio! The radio!
I knew it could teach!, I knew it could preach,
I knew it could reach across the air!
I knew it could sell, I knew it could yell,
I knew it could tell the truth out there!
Not bad for a backward hick! Not bad for a country kid!
Not a bad little ol' trick to do all that I did!
We love when it sings, we love when it swings!
I love when it brings my soul to you!
We love when it hops, we love when it bops!
The ride never stops, just feel it come through!
So turn the volume up now! Let the music have it's say!
Ain't no use holdin' back-
The rhythm's gonna get you, the rhythm's gonna get you,
The rhythm's gonna get you anyway!
We use it to jive, we use it to thrive!
And I came alive on the/ on the radio!
