"Oh No The Radio" as written by and William Reese Owsley....
Oh no the radio
Has got me by the ears and won't let go
Oh no the radio
Is playing that song again
Oh no no no no the radio
Follows me everywhere I go
Oh no the radio
Is playing that song again

I wish I could forget the day when
We heard our record playing
We sang the words into your hairbrush
And gave Donnie and Marie the bum's rush
When the fat lady started singing
It was over and my ears were ringing
Our song, a favorite dedication
Is going number one across the nation

Oh no the radio
Another hit and run in stereo
Oh no the radio
Is playing that song again
Oh no no no no the radio
Follows me everywhere I go
Oh no the radio
Is playing that song again

I'd settle for a bad reception
Than have to listen to the next selection
You know I'm rockin' in a hard place
When I hear it all I see is your face
Goin' out to the one you1re lovin'
When the pushin' really comes to shovin'
True love is givin' and a takin'
Not a record that I feel like breakin'

Just when I thought I would never
Get over the thought of you leaving
The sky opens up and the sunshine's
Giving me more to believe in
Then I hear it once again
No! No! No!

I pull into a drive-in movie
Where the radio will not get to me
Roll down the window for the talk back
Our song's in the movie soundtrack
Hope the story has a happy ending
'Cause my heart could really use the mending
Oh girl, I meant it when I said it
The radio makes me regret it

    General CommentIt's a dual statement. On one hand, it's a piece on radio society, and how people can hear the same songs over and over and over 500 times a day and still call up and request it, and how everyone in a relationship has "a song," but it's the same song every other couple picks! Then it's simply a story about recently being dumped by a girlfriend, and "their song" keeps playing wherever he goes, it's all of a sudden ironically inescapable, berating him everywhere while he's still in the mourning period trying to shake her out of his mind.
