There was a paper doll.
Her name was Marguerite.
She used to walk to school,
and on her way,
she’d pick up her friend,
Her best friend,
her best friend.

His name was Lionel.
He was a tin soldier,
but he was made of wax.
They had the best time in the world,
that boy
and that girl,
that boy
and that girl.

They had the radio on.
They had the radio on.
All they needed
was the radio on.
The music that one day
they would really know,
all they needed was each other
and their radio.

A lot of time went by,
they got a little bit older.
He said,
“I’ve gotta wage this war.”
She said,
“You’re waging it with yourself,
no one else,
yourself.”
He said,
“Screw this.
I’m out.

I got my radio on.
I got my radio on.
All I need is
my radio on.
I don’t need no friends
and I don’t need no place to go.
All I need is my radio.”

So Marguerite learned how to put on
her own paper clothes,
walked out that door,
and sat alone.
She said,
“I wish I never fell in love,
this I know,
but at least I have the open road
and my radio.”

They had the radio on.
They had the radio on.
All they needed
was the radio on.
The music that one day
they would really know,
all they needed was each other
and their radio…
