Written by Warren Zevon

Everybody's restless
And they got no place to go
Someone's always trying to tell them
Something they already know
So their anger and resentment flow

Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long
Mohammed's radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio
Mohammed's radio

You know the sheriff's got his problems too
And he will surely take them out on me and you
In walks the village idiot and her face is all aglow
Because she's been up all night listening to
Mohammed's radio

Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long
Mohammed's radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio
Mohammed's radio

Everybody's desperate
Trying to make ends meet
Work all day still can't pay
The price of gasoline and meat
Alas their lives are incomplete

Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long
Mohammed's radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio
Mohammed's radio

You've been up all night just listening for his drum
Hoping that the righteous might just might just might just might just come
I heard the general whispering to his aide de camp
Be watchful for Mohammed's lamp

Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long
Mohammed's radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio
Mohammed's radio

Mohammed's radio
