Ex-friends, ex-lovers and enemies
I've got your case in front of me today
All sewn up
Ex-bosses you never let me be
I got your names and your numbers filed away
I've grown up
See me
Hear me
Don't you know you can't get near me
You can only hope to hear me on your radio
On your radio
You're gonna hear me on your radio.

Ex-teachers still coming through to me
Tough kids don't stop trying
To kick me to the ground
I don't care
Go on just do what you do to me
You look so sick when you're pushing me around
You're nowhere

    A guy (I wonder who..yeah) who no one believed in, makes it big, and in a way gets some vengeance. "And you can't tear it up" - They are no longer people who are involved in his life so they have no impact on his life and success. cool song.

    My Interpretation
    At the time this song came out, radio was huge. It was common for a disc jockey to be treated like a rock star — Wolfman Jack, Rick Dees, Pat St. John, etc. Joe imagined most of these "celebrities" were really insecure inside due to perhaps being picked on as a child, and that they were merely broadcasting an alter ego that they always wanted to be. I always thought this song fit American radio personality Howard Stern like a glove.
