Spud-U-Like - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

Super mean machine
Taking over all the kids you've ever seen
Locked into the screen
Jabbing at the buttons like they're in a dream
Don't want a mega drive
Just give me spud-u-like
And lots of records that'll make me scream
Give me the radio playing all the songs i know
Don't want no gameboy just a rock and roll
Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want a gameboy just rock and roll
Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want a system that ain't got no soul

Virtual reality taking over grown ups like you've never seen
Locked into the screen
Simulated mass-destruction oh so clean
Don't want a mega drive
Just give me spud-u-like
And lots of records that'll make me scream
Give me the radio playing all the songs i know
Don't want no gameboy just a rock and roll

Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want a gameboy just rock and roll
Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want a system that's not rock and roll
Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want a gameboy just rock and roll
Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want a system that ain't got no soul

Kids grow up to be
Simulation junkies when the game's for real
Don't want no c.t.v. when they're pushing all the buttons
And the game's for free
Don't give me a mega drive
Just give me spud-u-like
And lots of music that'll make me scream
No mean machine in my dreams
I need you, radio
I want you, radio
I need you, radio
I want you for the things you do
No more gameboy just want rock and roll
No more top gun just want rock and roll
No more smart bombs just want rock and roll
No more gameboy just want rock and roll


Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want a gameboy just rock and roll
Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want a system that's not rock and roll
Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want a gameboy just rock and roll
Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want a system that ain't got no soul
Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want smart bombs just rock and roll
Oh a oh give me a radio
Don't want a system that's not rock and roll
