i got the message lyrics – zz top

i’m picking up on a signal
that’s in the air tonight.
it’s sparkin’ my receiver,
it feels like dynamite.
i got the message
but i wanna get it straight from you.

my mind is electric,
i’m about to blow a fuse.
the c*ckpit is empty
so shoot it down the tube.
i got the message
but i wanna get it straight from you.

i’ve got to make a connection.
i’m on needles and pins.
workin’ up a printout
and i’m gonna zero in.
i got the message
but i wanna get it straight from you.
