Lyrics

It's 5 o'clock, it's time to blow this joint and get out on the road


They may own my body from 9 to 5 but they will never own my soul.


I tune in my station, the man comes on to say how white my shirts can be


But he can't be a man 'cause he just doesn't smoke the same cigarettes as me.


 


Everything I need to know, I swear I learned it on the AM radio


And everywhere I have to go, I have to listen to the AM radio.


 


It's 6 o'clock, I'm stuck in traffic and I know there's no escape


So I fantasize about the girl on the internet in Superman's red cape


I change the station and Semolina Pilchard's on the Eiffel Tower -- oh no!


With her elementary penguin, 'singin Hare Krishna, kicking Edgar Allan Poe.


 


Everything I need to know, I swear I learned it on the AM radio


And everywhere I have to go, I have to listen to the AM radio.


 


Everything I need to know...


Everything I need to know...


Everything I need to know...


Everything I need to know...


 


Well, I was just out of school and like a typical fool I checked into Desolation Row


And they gave me a cube beside the company boob to watch the lovely mermaids flow.


I got my very own heart attack machine, they said, "For now, we'll set it low."


And the Phantom swore he'd share with me,


 


Everything I need to know. 


 


It's 12 o'clock, it's time to go to bed and face another day


I hope I have that dream, 'bout Number 6 yes he's resigning, Number 2 gets blown away.


I tune in my headset, the people bow down to the neon god they made


And the words of their prophet are written on the tenement halls: "Yours truly, O.J."


 


Everything I need to know, I swear I learned it on the AM radio


And everywhere I have to go, I have to listen to the AM radio.
