(Spoken)
He kisses her goodbye,
And heads for the radio station.
Oh, he hates to leave her,
But he's got another show to do.
He knows she gets lonely,
So he lets her know that he's thinking about her.
And though millions are listening,
She knows who he's talking to.

Chorus: (Sang)
Comin' to you live like I do every night
From the heart of your radio.
I play a little sad, and I play a lotta glad.
And a few ol' cheatin' songs.

Here's hopin' everybody out in radio land
Found a love just as true as mine
Good night angel, sleep tight darlin'
Close your pretty brown eyes.

When the show is over,
Your radio lover
Will be home by your side.

She's laying in bed
As her DJ tells her that he loves her.
It would break his heart
If he knew she wasn't there alone.
She knows when to cheat
And when to tell her lover to leave her.
She knows they'll be safe
Just as long as his show goes on.

(Spoken)
He planned a surprise
For the night of their first anniversary.
He taped his show just so he could be home.
The radio was playing and,
As he walked in on her and her lover,
He heard himself saying
The last words that they ever heard.

Chorus: (Sang)
Comin' to you live like I do every night
From the heart of your radio.
I play a little sad, and I play a lotta glad.
And a few ol' cheatin' songs.

Here's hopin' everybody out in radio land
Found a love just as true as mine
Good night angel, sleep tight darlin'
Close your pretty brown eyes.

When the show is over,
Your radio lover
Will be home by your side.

Chorus: (Sang)
Comin' to you live like I do every night
From the heart of your radio.
I play a little sad, and I play a lotta glad.
And a few ol' cheatin' songs.

Here's hopin' everybody out in radio land...
