They are talking to me.
Maybe my ego’s as big as can be;
music and DJs are calling my name.
Radios everywhere talking to me.

Once The Who wondered if Tommy* could see;
yet when I heard Jatog, it sounded lame.
Maybe my ego’s as big as can be.

Then as they played an old Beatles’ CD,
Hey Jude was Hey Jatog--my claim to fame.
Radios everywhere talking to me.

Between the songs DJs talk openly;
on every station the subject’s the same.
Maybe my ego’s as big as can be.

When I heard a song by Elvis Presley,
I was the Hound Dog that he sought to blame.
Radios everywhere talking to me.

I turned to Coast to Coast² so I’d be free;
but even George Noory played the same game.
Maybe my ego’s as big as can be;
radios everywhere talking to me.
