Stand back
Step away from the radio
It's filling with smoke, and all the songs have choked
Leave it alone

Have a glance, there's no chance
That it might be saved
Surrounded by flies, no chance for enterprise
Dig it a grave

Now I've got an alibi
For you were with me on the night
The music died
My name is clear, no need to hide
For I've come to testify
That all these facts are bona fide
The music died
We're all victims of this crime

Here come the lawyers
They're getting ready to make their case
They plan to litigate, carry on a long debate
And hold back the pace

But soon their heads bow as they wonder how
This could be and who is to blame
Why did we hesitate, let it fall so out of date
Ain't it a shame

Now I've got an alibi
For you were with me on the night
The music died
My name is clear, no need to hide
For I've come to testify
That all these facts are bona fide
The music died
We're all victims of this crime

Remember long ago
When tunes would glow
Our minds would blow
And rock would roll
It fed your soul

They claimed that video
Had killed you then
That's what they said
But now we know

You were scared to death instead

Now I've got an alibi
For you were with me on the night
The music died
My name is clear, no need to hide
For I've come to testify
That all these facts are bona fide
The music died
We're all victims of this crime
