I had a six-transistor when I was a kid
Under my pillow, I kept it hid
When the lights went out, and no one could see
Over the airwaves, the world came to me

I'd go through the stations 'til I found a game
I knew how they played by the sounds of their names
The sluggers hit homers, those pitchers threw smoke
And I watched it all on my radio

At the crack of the bat, I knew how far it'd go
And I watched it all on my radio
I watched it all on my radio

When the ball game was over, the wrap-up complete
I'd search through the static 'til I found a beat
The Beatles and Creedence, the Stones and the Byrds
You should have seen all the groups that I heard

And on Saturday night when the skies were all clear
A station from Nashville sometimes would appear
The steel guitars and soft southern twang
The stars of the Grand Ole Opry would sing

And I had a seat on the very front row
And I watched it all on my radio
I watched it all on my radio

And right about midnight, some preacher came on
To tell me what's right, to tell me what's wrong
And there was a test at the sound of the beep
"It was only a test" the voice would repeat
And the National Anthem would sing me to sleep

I had a six-transistor when I was a kid
Under my pillow, I kept it hid
When the lights went out, and no one could see
Over the airwaves, the world came to me

And I had a seat on the very front row
And I watched it all on my radio
I watched it all on my radio
