"Radio America" as written by and Peter/barat Doherty....
If I get the call
I will call across Radio America
Right across America I will call
Yes I will call all across Radio America
Right across America I will call

If call I must do
To take my love my love to you

There a lovely young girl on?
And all across Africa, China and Australia
I will call

Call you down in New Mexico
In New Brighton and Tokyo
I will call

If call I must do
To take my love my love to you

For well it may hap' that these are they
Your happiest days
Oh my good old friend
I see you chanced your arm again

Red faced president
Took afternoon tea with her majesty the Queen
And they watched old films flicker
Across the old palace movie screen crying
What a shame as she slipped in the rain
The poor dancing girl she won't dance again

And they said it was a transmission
To take my love my love to you

    General CommentThe poor production value really adds to the sound doesn't it? In a good way, I mean.

    General CommentA lot of people seem to think that about Peter but I think his voice is perfect for that - this is possibly my favourite song off the album because of how beautiful it is...makes you wish there was somewhere out there like that for you
