I heard you on the wireless
Back in '52     
Lying awake intently tuning in on you    
If I was young it didn't
Stop you coming through
Oh-a-oh             

They took the credit
For your second symphony    
Rewritten by machine on new technology   
And now I understand
The problems you can see
Oh-a-oh     I met your children
Oh-a-oh     what did you tell them?

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Pictures came and broke your heart
Oh-a-a-a oh     

And now we meet in an abandoned studio   
We hear the playback
And it seems so long ago   
And you remember   the jingles used to go:

Oh-a-oh      you were the first one
Oh-a-oh      you were the last one

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind, we've gone too far
Oh-a-a-a oh    oh-a-a-a oh 

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind, we've gone too far
Pictures came   and broke your heart
Put the blame on VTR

(Ohhhhhh      radio star)       
(Ohhhhhh      radio star)       

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
(You arrrrre the radio star)   
(You arrrrre the radio star)   
(You arrrrre the radio star)   
(You arrrrre)
