Top 40

Robert PalmerBuy this song

When I make my Top 40
Smash hit
Rock ‘n’ roll record
Everything is gonna be just fine
When I make my Top 40
Smash hit 
Rock ‘n’ roll disc
I’ll be the record company’s valentine
No more philosophic melancholia
Eight hundred pounds of electric genitalia
When I make my Top 40
Smash hit
Rock ‘n’ roll record
Everything’s gonna be just fine

When I make my fuzz tone
Wah-wah
Synthesized record
Everything is gonna be just grand
When I make my fuzz tone
Wah-wah
Synthesized disc
I’ll have to get myself a moving van
Costume, hairdo, made up cute
A personal connection in a business suit
When I make my fuzz tone
Wah-wah
Synthesized record
Everything is gonna be just grand

When I make my dynamite
Heavy soul
Freaked out record
Everything is gonna be just swell
When I make my dynamite
Heavy soul
Freaked out disc
I’ll be living it up pell mell
Mountain top hide away
Three-car garage
Out there hustlin’ that sonic massage

When I make my Top 40
Big beat
Heavy soul
Freaked out
Solid gold
Synthesized
Rock ‘n’ roll record
Everything is gonna be just fine
