When I was a boy I used to listen to the radio
Late into the night with the volume down and the lights down low.
Tune it in to the 999, they used to call her Caroline.
Every Sunday night I listened in midnight to two
And no one [else] had to know that we're all alone, just me and you.

Who gives a damn about the BBC? Out in the channel everyone was free.
Listening to the radio, pirate radio.

Tune it in to the 999, they used to call her Caroline.
Listening to the radio, pirate radio.

Now those days are gone, there's no more ship, and no more show,
But I still hear those tunes like the young boy I was long ago.
Close my eyes and I drift away, I hear those songs just like yesterday.
Listening to the radio, pirate radio.

When I was a boy I used to listen to the radio
Late into the night with the volume up and the lights down low.
Tune it in to the 999, we used to call her Caroline.
Listening to the radio, pirate radio.

Who gives a damn about the BBC? Out in the channel everyone was free.
Listening to the radio, pirate radio.
Listening to the radio, pirate radio.
Listening to the radio, pirate radio.
