BROKEN RADIO
Words and music by Patrick Fleming, Jr.
©2013 Patrick Fleming, Jr.

I heard it said “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”
It’s working fine just the way it is
Too many times we try to change things
That’s when it all falls to shit

And the domino effect of our own incompetence
Digs us deeper and deeper in the hole
We’re left scratching our heads with spare parts in hand
Should have left it well enough alone

Now I’m singing in harmony with my broken heart
Trading licks on broken fingers on a broke guitar
With broken boots I’m dancing ‘round a broken dance hall floor
To the broken rhythm on a broken radio
To the broken rhythm on a broken radio

I rode the bull straight through the china shop
Yeah, you know how in all went down
In a big crash, the glass it shattered
A million pieces on the ground

If we only stopped and asked someone for some direction
We might be in better state of mind
‘Cause the knots we tie while we’re untying all our knots
They leave us forever in a bind

Now I’m singing in harmony with my broken heart
Trading licks on broken fingers on a broke guitar
With broken boots I’m dancing ‘round a broken dance hall floor
To the broken rhythm on a broken radio
To the broken rhythm on a broken radio
To the broken rhythm on a broken radio

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, don’t touch it, don’t mess with it
Can’t you see that it’s working fine
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, don’t look at it, don’t breathe on it
It’s working fine!!

Now I’m singing in harmony with my broken heart
Trading licks on broken fingers on a broke guitar
With broken boots I’m dancing ‘round a broken dance hall floor
To the broken rhythm on a broken radio
To the broken rhythm on a broken radio
To the broken rhythm on a broken radio
To the broken rhythm of a broken rhythm on a broken rhythm
Of a broken rhythm on a broken radio
