Verse 1



Built in the belly of junk by the river my cabin stands


Made from the trash I dug out 'the heap, with my own fair hands


Every night, I'm back at the shack and I'm sure no one is there



I'm putting the aerial up, so I can go out on the air


-5 ||7/4





(On the air) - on the air



(On the air) - on the air


On the air______

Verse 2


Every morning I'm out at dawn with the dwarfs and the tramp

For a silent communion lit from above by the sodium lamps

Everyone I meet out on the street acts as if I wasn't there

But they're all going to know who I am 'cos I can go out on the air

(Chorus) (1:51-)





Leaving the car down leafy lane

Turning out Tarzan for my Jungle Jane


anyone at all, from Captain Zero and

his brand of superhero, standing by a call


Oh it's not easy, no no no


No, no it's not easy making real friends

(Intro) (2:27-)

Verse 3


Don't you give me your steak-reared milkboys, milkboys

Half alive on empty white noise, white noise

I got power, I'm proud to be loud; my signal goes out clear,

I want everybody to know that Mozo is here

(Chorus) (3:16-)
