Buggles — I Love You lyrics

Yrics

The buggles, the age of plastic (1979-80, island records)
Songs:
Plastic age, video killed the radio star kid dynamo,
I love you (miss robot) clean-clean, elstree,
Astro boy (and the proles on parade), johnny on the monorail

Living in the plastic age

Every day my metal friend
Shakes my bed at 6am
Then the shiny serving clones
Run in with my telephones

Talking fast I make a deal
Buy the fake and sell what's real
What's this pain here in my chest?
Maybe I should take a rest

They send the heart police to put you under,
Cardiac arrest
And as they drag you the door
They tell you that you've failed the test

Living in the...
Living in the plastic age
Looking only half my age
Hello doctor lift my face

I wish my skin could stand the pace
In the bed I read my mind
Remember how the mice were blind
I watch them fighting in their cage
Could this be the plastic age?

They send the heart police
To put you under cardiac arrest
And as they drag you the door
They tell you that you've failed the test

Living in the
Plastic age
Plastic age
Plastic age

They send the heart police to put you under cardiac arrest
And as they drag you the door
They tell you that you've failed the test

Living in the plastic age
Plastic age
Plastic age

Video killed the radio star

I heard you on the wireless back in fifty two
Lying awake intent at tuning in on you.
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through.
Oh-a oh

They took the credit for your second symphony.
Rewritten by machine and new technology,
And now I understand the problems you can see.
Oh-a oh

I met your children
Oh-a oh

What did you tell them?

Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.

Pictures came and broke your heart.
Oh-a-a-a oh

And now we meet in an abandoned studio.
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago.
And you remember the jingles used to go.
Oh-a oh

You were the first one.
Oh-a oh

You were the last one.

Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.

In my mind and in my car,
We can't rewind we've gone to far

Oh-a-aho oh,
Oh-a-aho oh

Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.

In my mind and in my car,
We can't rewind we've gone to far.

Pictures came and broke your heart,
Put the blame on vtr.

You are a radio star.
You are a radio star.

Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.

Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.

Video killed the radio star.
(you are a radio star.)

Kid dynamo,

Though today you might be riding
The engines of progress
Working in the major factories
Call me if you ever feel like letting go

I still remember the days of
Kid dynamo, kid dynamo
Kid dynamo, kid dynamo

Bowowowowowo wa-ah ow
Wowowowowowo wa-ah ow
Spreading in the subways
Of the playback from the train tracks
I think your mind was born with water wings
And now when I see you
All the generation screams
I remember the dreams of
Kid dynamo, kid dynamo
Kid dynamo, kid dynamo

Kid dynamo, I remember you
Kid dynamo, because I sleep with you
Kid dynamo, cause I have been with you
Oh let it be said
How the media builds stars
And our minds will not change
Only our cars

Kid dynamo, kid dynamo
Kid dynamo
Kid dynamo
Kid dynamo

Kid dynamo, I remember you
Kid dynamo, because I think of you
Kid dynamo, cause I have looked at you
Kid dynamo,
Kid dynamo, kid dynamo

Kid dynamo, kid dynamo

I love you (miss robot)

I love you miss robot
Electronically
I love you miss robot
Programmed just to please

You make love like a metronome
Don't drive to fast when you take me home
Touch the seam on your silver skin
I feel so hard when you take me in
I love you miss robot
Electronically? Br> I love you miss robot,
Programmed just to please

Talk of love on the telephone
When your voice fades there's a paying tone
Force a coin and your there again
And my loneliness is paid away

I love you miss robot
Programmed just to please
I love you miss robot
Electronically

I must leave miss robot,
Give yourself to me
I love you miss robot
Do you love me?

I love you miss robot
Electronically
I love you miss robot
Programmed just to please

I must leave miss robot
Give yourself to me
I love you miss robot
