  • No good, two timin', lies comin' outta your mouth.
    Cheatin', mistreatin' games that you play brought you down.
    Broke my heart, tore it apart, look who's got the last laugh now.
    Don't you come crawlin' back begging please on your knees,
    Baby if you're missin' me.

    Well, you can hear me on the radio!
    You wanna turn me on, turn on your stereo.
    You can sing along, while they're playin' my song.
    How you done me wrong,
    Baby crank it up!
    Until you blow the speakers out your Chevy truck.
    So listen Romeo, when you're feelin' kinda lonely,
    Let me tell you where to go.
    Turn on the radio!

    Try to call, twitter me, text until your fingers bleed.
    Oh! the D.J's the only way you're ever gonna hear from me.
    If you're reminiscing, and you're missin' me this much,
    And you really wanna stay in touch.

    Well if you hear me on the radio!
    You wanna turn me on, turn on your stereo.
    You can sing along, while they're playin' my song.
    How you done me wrong,
    Baby crank it up!
    Until you blow the speakers out your Chevy truck.
    So listen Romeo, when you're feelin' kinda lonely,
    Let me tell you where to go.
    Turn on your radio!

    Whoa!
    Turn on the radio!
    Turn on the radio
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

    You can hear me on the radio!
    You wanna turn me on, turn on your stereo.
    You can sing along, while they're playin' my song.
    How you done me wrong,
    Baby crank it up!
    Until you blow the speakers out your Chevy truck.
    So listen Romeo, when you're feelin' kinda lonely,
    Let me tell you where to go.
    Turn on the radio!

    Turn on your radio!
    Turn on, turn on the radio!
    Turn on the radio!
    Turn on the radio, oh oh oh oh oh oh!
    Turn on the radio! Writer/s: CHERIE BEBOUT OAKLEY, J.P. TWANG, THOMAS MARK OAKLEY

  • Mike from Tucson, AzMcEntire acknowledged Cherie Oakley as a co-writer of "Turn on the Radio" after Cheri and Lily Elise vocally competed on The Voice reality talent show. It was a stunning anouncement from McEntire, pointing out that one of the competitors had a "Number One" record. I can't help but wonder if it influenced Christina Aguilera's decision. It seemed close but I really think Cheri was the best. Interestingly , McEintire had never met Cheri face-to-face until the competition.
