  • Some expression in your eyes
    Overtook me by surprise
    Where was I how was I to know?

    How can we drive to a movie show
    When the music is here in my car
    There's a band playing on the radio

    With a rhythm of rhyming guitars
    They playing Oh Yeah on the radio

    And so came to be our song
    And so on through all summer long
    Day and night drifting into love

    Driving you home from a movie show
    So in tune to the sounds in my car
    There's a band playing on the radio

    With a rhythm of rhyming guitars
    They playing Oh Yeah on the radio
    Its some time since we said goodbye
    And now we lead our separate lives
    But where am I where can I go?

    Driving alone to a movie show
    So I turn to the sounds in my car
    There's a band playing on the radio

    With a rhythm of rhyming guitars
    There's a band playing on the radio
    And its drowning the sound of my tears
    They're playing Oh Yeah on the radio
