lyrics

Transistor Radio
By Barbara Gettes

The only thing she had to show
was a Transistor Radio
Oh, the people walking down the street
she was barely phased by
the shoes on their feet

da da da da da da da da da da da da

She always liked to say, “hello”
but the chances were rare cause she was sitting so low
All she needed was her radio
but where is it now, oh, where did it go?

What happened to the radio?
Noone here seems to know
da da da da da da da da da da da da da

When the cold air set in
she took solace in a bottle of gin
crooners say that it was not a sin
except for the man with the toothless grin

What happened to the radio?
Noone here seems to know
da da da

He sat with her through the night
Oh, and in his arms he was holding her tight
Love would make the cold seem trite
and the two became out of mind
out of sight

da da da da da da da da da da da da
What happened to the radio?
Noone here seems to know
