A face for radio
Verse
People had never seen him.
They had only heard his songs.
Then along came video.
The studio said, so long.
Pre chorus
A star has to look the part.
A good voice alone won’t do.
Without the looks to match his voice.
His days on top were thru.
Chorus
He could spell bind you with his voice.
He made albums that went gold.
His songs were hits and topped the charts.
He had a face for radio.
Verse
His fans deserted him in the droves.
They applaud pretty faces.
Now the only place he sings songs
Is in honkytonk places.
Pre chorus
A star has to look the part.
A good voice alone won’t do.
Without the looks to match his voice.
His days on top were thru.
Chorus
He could spell bind you with his voice.
He made albums that went gold.
His songs were hits and topped the charts.
He had a face for radio.
Bridge
Talent took a backseat.
On the TV screen.
The pretty boys and girls.
Dominate the scene.
Verse
People had never seen him.
They had only heard his songs.

His songs were hits and topped the charts.
