Hello honey, it's me What did you think when you heard me back on the radio? What did the kids say when they knew it was their long lost daddy-o? Remember how we listened to the radio And I said 'That's the place for me' And how I got the job as an FM Jock the day you married me? We were two kids and I was was into AM rock But I just had to run around It's been eight years since I left you babe Let me tell you 'bout what's gone down I am the morning DJ on WOLD Playing all the hits for you wherever you may be The bright good-morning voice who's heard but never seen Feeling all of forty-five going on fifteen The drinking I did on my last big gig made my voice go low They said that they liked the younger sound when they let me go So I drifted on down to Tulsa, Oklahoma to do me a late night talk show Now I worked my way back home again, via Boise, Idhao That's how this business goes I've been making extra money playing high school sock hops I'm a big time guest MC You should hear me talking to the little children And listen what they say to me Got a spot on the top of my head, begging for a new toupee And a tire on my gut from sitting on my But they're never gonna go away Sometimes I get this crazy dream That I just drive off in my car But you can travel on ten thousand miles and still say where you are I've been thinking that I should quit disk jockeying And start that record store Maybe I could settle down if you'ld take me back once more Okay honey, I see I guess he's better than me Sure, old girl, I understand You don't have to worry, I'm such a happy man WOLD, WOLD, WOL, WOL, WOLDDD I am the morning DJ on KHJ Playing all the hits for you playing them night and day The bright good morning voice who's heard but never seen Feeling all of forty-five, going on fifteen I am the morning DJ on WOLD
