I Hate Kate

I Hate Kate - Outta My Head

Dave Alvin/Rod Hodges

(Blue Horn Toad Music, BMI/Blowout Music, ASCAP)

His mama said “Baby, wait for me in the car,”

And she went lookin’ for his daddy inside a bar

So he sat and let the radio take him far away

Listenin’ to XPRS and KRLA.

Plastic silver nine-volt heart

You click it on and let the music start

And the radio was his toy

The radio was his toy.

Well Rachel was twenty and he was seventeen years old

Sittin’ in a parked car on a country road

Runnin’ his fingers through her long black hair

And the Staples singin’ “Baby, I’ll take you there.”

Plastic silver nine volt heart

You click it on and let the music start

And the radio was his toy

The radio was his toy.

Doin’ the dishes long after midnight

Talkin’ about the evenin’ news with his wife

The baby wakes up and starts to cry

So they turn the radio on for his lullaby.

Plastic silver nine volt heart

You click it on and let the music start

Plastic silver nine volt heart

You click it on and let the music start

And the radio was his toy

The radio was his toy.

Plastic silver nine volt heart

Plastic silver nine volt heart

You click it on and let the music start.
