D|-9-| ---Play in a syncopated rythm


Hello Honey, it's me
What did you think when you heard me back on the radio?
What did the kids say when they knew it was their long lost daddy-o?

Em                                  C
Remember how we listened to the radio
             D                    G
And I said `That's the place for me'
E                            C           D              Am
And how I got the job as an FM Jock the day you married me?
          G                          C   
We were two kids and I was was into AM rock
       D                     Em
But I just had to run around
Fmaj7                           C
It's been eight years since I left you babe
D                                Am
Let me tell you 'bout what's gone down

  G              D      Em        Fmaj7
I am the morning DJ on W * O * L * D
C                 G           D/F#            Am7
Playing all the hits for you wherever you may be
G             D                       Em                Fmaj7
The bright good-morning voice who's heard but never seen
C                   G      D/F#       Em7
Feeling all of forty-five going on fifteen

The drinking I did on my last big gig made my voice go low
They said that they liked the younger sound when they let me go
So I drifted on down to Tulsa, Oklahoma to do me a late night talk show
Now I worked my way back home again, via Boise, Idhao
That's how this business goes


            Em                        D
I've been making extra money playing high school sock hops
Fmaj7                       C
I'm a big time guest MC
You should hear me talking to the little children
And listen what they say to me
            Em                    D
Got a spot on the top of my head, begging for a new toupee
      Fmaj7                              C
And a tire on my gut from sitting on my
            D                 Em
But they're never gonna go away
Em                      D
Sometimes I get this crazy dream
        Fmaj7                C
That I just drive off in my car
 Em                  D                            B                                          
But you can travel on ten thousand miles and still say where you are
Em                              D
I've been thinking that I should quit disk jockeying
    Fmaj7             C
And start that record store
C                D                    Fmaj7            Em
Maybe I could settle down if you'ld take me back once more

OK Honey, I see
I guess he's better than me
Sure, Old Girl, I understand
You don't have to worry, I'm such a happy man

W*O*L*D, W*O*L*D, W*O*L, W*O*L, W*O*L*D*D*D

I am the morning DJ on K*H*J
Playing all the hits for you Playing them night and day
The bright good morning voice who's heard but never seen
Feeling all of forty-five, going on fifteen
I am the morning DJ on W*O*L*D
