Internet Killed the Video Star

Album: Get Sharp (2010)
  • The kids are disco dancing
    They're tired of rock and roll
    I try to tell them "hey that drum machine ain't got no soul"
    But they don't want to listen no

    They think they've herd it all
    They trade those guitars in for drum machines and disco balls
    We can rewind now we've gone too far
    Internet killed the video star

    The kids are disco dancing
    They're tired of rock and roll
    Don't bother telling them that drum machine ain't got no soul
    The kids are disco dancing

    They're tired of rock and roll
    Don't bother telling them that drum machine ain't got no soul
    You know we never listen we think we've seen it all
    Like everything we're doing no ones ever done before

    Did you hear what they said?
    That rock and roll is dead?
    Yeah it's like a zombie ti will dig it's self back up again
    Tune in the signal but it's fading

    Some ghost strumming his guitar on the radio
    Singing "oh the glory days are gone but everything OK
    'Cause we still love our sex and drugs just like the good ol' days"
    The kids are disco dancing

    They're tired of rock and roll
    Don't bother telling them that drum machine ain't got no soul
    The kids are disco dancing
    They're tired of rock and roll

    Don't bother telling them that drum machine ain't got no soul
    Well I'm a horrible dancer I ain't gonna lie
    But I'll be damned if that means that I ain't gonna try
    Yeah I'm a shitty romancer baby I ain't gonna lie

    But I'll be damned if that means that I ain't gonna try
    Get up get up get up and dance
    Get up get up get up and dance
    The kids are disco dancing

    They're tired of rock and roll
    Don't bother telling them that drum machine ain't got no soul
    The kids are disco dancing
    They're tired of rock and roll

    Don't bother telling them that drum machine ain't got no soul
    The kids are disco dancing
    They're tired of rock and roll
    They're tired of rock and roll
    They're tired of rock and roll

    We can't rewind we've gone too far
    The internet killed the video star
    The internet killed the video star
