Mohammed's Radio
Jackson Browne & Warren Zevon Lyrics


Everybody's restless and they've got no place to go
Someone's always trying to tell them
Something they already know
So their anger and resentment flow

But don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long
Mohammed's Radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio, Mohammed's Radio

You know, the Sheriff's got his problems too
He will surely take them out on you
In walked the village idiot and his face was all aglow
He's been up all night listening to Mohammed's Radio

Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long
Mohammed's Radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio, Mohammed's Radio

Everybody's desperate trying to make ends meet
Work all day, still can't pay the price of gasoline and meat
Alas, their lives are incomplete

Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long Mohammed's Radio
I heard somebody singing sweet and soulful
On the radio, Mohammed's Radio

You've been up all night listening for his drum
Hoping that the righteous might just might just might just come
I heard the General whisper to his aide-de-camp
"Be watchful for Mohammed's lamp"

Don't it make you want to rock and roll
All night long Mohammed's Radio

Warren was such an awesome guy. My old man actually drove the tour bus for him for several years. He was so UNDER RATED.

Michael Mace

Some guys are able to out a lot of really good music while also battling with demons but I don't think WJZ was ever able to make music that reflected his ability

@Joe Straughan one of the greatest voices.

how fantastic, how wonderful it must have been - thank you for that - all the greats are disappearing so fast - we keep them in our hearts!

I met Warren in Hamburg, Germany on the " Markthalle" long long time ago. His hair was short, but nice and his music is still on my turntable...

Bob Biker

He wasn't under rated by his peers and never by me, the man was a talent like no other and his sense of humor reflected in many of his songs was outstanding. I miss you Warren my old friend.
