WXJL Tonight
The way it was in the past, a long, long time ago
Before staff levels dropped, they used to listen to the radio
And listen to the DJs talk about the songs they didn't know
As if it really mattered
Hit-pick or phone-in show
I don't want you to go tonight
Ten thousand watts of power
News headlines on the hour tonight
Our music beats the best
You just don't need the rest tonight
Once I couldn't care at all
But I can feel the ratings fall tonight
And twenty years ago, no-one seemed to care
The people must have known the DJ's role was only there
To fill in space between the songs that talk of love and other things
As if they didn't matter
Automatic stations came and sent them all away
And now I'm left alone
I haven't got a word to say
And you're the one who makes the choice to turn me on or turn me off
But now it really matters
Hit-pick or phone-in show
I don't want you to go tonight
Ten thousand watts of power
News headlines on the hour tonight
Our music beats the best
You just don't need the rest tonight
Once I couldn't care at all
But I can feel the ratings fall tonight
Hit-pick or phone-in show
I don't want you to go tonight
Ten thousand watts of power
News headlines on the hour tonight
Our music beats the best
You just don't need the rest tonight
Ten thousand watts of power
News headlines on the hour tonight
