'85 Radio Special Thank You

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the compilation album Then: The Earlier Years (1997).

They Might Be Giants are happy to be on a radio program for the first time in their long-illustrious careers
1985 has been a very good year for They Might Be Giants
In January, Bill began at a new school
Everyone liked him, And he likes everything
In March, we were all trapped deep inside a subway car racing down tracks going faster and much faster until they never let us out a full ten blocks later
In April, we all sang a duet with Tina Turner
In a way it was nice, and it was our favorite song
But we spent the entire summer resting up, looking for some vital link missing in the big picture
Bill said he had found it, but in fact he had lost it
Well, in September Bill chipped a tooth skyriding far above the Planet Earth
And then came the end of the year when we were on our very last radio show, which we are glad that you have become a part of
Thank you for listening to They Might Be Giants
We do have a Dial-a-Song service at 718-387-6962

Thank you
