                RADIO RADIO

Beatsteaks    original from:Elvis Costello

Intro:  4x

F#  C#m H  B   C#m   

       F#                              C#

I was tuning in the shine on the light night dial

      H                        F#

Doing anything my radio advised.

                         C#

With every one of those late night stations

         H                               D#     *  (Guitar comes in)

Playing songs, bringing tears to my eyes.

       H                        C#

I was seriously thinking about hiding the receiver

        D#                         C#

When the switch broke 'cause it's old.

 H                               C#

They're saying things that I can hardly believe.

              C#                             F#

They really think we're getting out of control.

F#             D#

Radio is the sound salvation.

           C#

Radio is cleaning up the nation.

      H              F#             C#        D#m

They say you better listen to the voice of reason.

                H            F#                  C#               Dm#

But they don't give you any choice 'cause they think that it's treason.

            C#                        D#m

So you had better do as you are told.

            C#                  F#

You better listen to the radio.

   Intro:  2x 

Hm                  F#

I want to bite the hand that feeds me.

Hm                  F#

I want to bite that hand so badly.

D#m                                  C#m7

I want to make them wish they'd never seen me.

  F#                    C#

Some of my friends sit around every evening

         H                      F#

And they worry about the times ahead.

                       C#

But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference

         H                  D#

And the promise of an early bed.

  H               

You better shut up or get cut up;

C#

They don't wanna hear about it.

 D#                       C#

It's only inches on the reel-to-reel.

 H                                C#

And the radio is in the hands of such a lot of fools

                                         F#

Trying to anaesthetise the way that you feel.

(chorus)

F#  C#m H  B   C#m

           F#  C#m H  B   C#m

Wonderful radio

           F#  C#m H  B   C#m

Marvelous radio

           F#  C#m H  B   C#m

Wonderful radio

        F#  C#m H  B   C#m

Radio, radio.

        F#  C#m H  B   C#m

Radio, radio.
