Radios of the world are tuning in tonight
Are you on the dial, are you tuned in right?
One of our DJ's is missing

Are you listening?
Are you listening to me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me clearly?
Around the dial

I've been around the dial so many times
But you're not there
Somebody tells me that you've been taken off the air
Well, you were my favorite DJ
Since I can't remember when
You always played the best records
You never followed any trend

F.M., A.M. where are you?
You gotta be out there somewhere on the dial
On the dial

(Are you ready)
We're going 'round the dial
(Are you listening)
Around the dial
(Are you tuned in)
Around the dial
(Are you searchin')
Around the dial
F.M., A.M. where are you?
You gotta be out there somewhere on the dial
On the dial

Where did you go Mr. DJ?
Did they take you off the air?
Was it something that you said to the corporation guys upstairs?
It wasn't the pressure
You never sounded down
It couldn't be the ratings
You had the best in town

Somehow I'm gonna find ya, track you down
Gonna keep on searchin'
Around and around and 'round and 'round

(They're searchin')
Around the dial
(They're listenin')
Around the dial
(Poor station)
The best in town
(Poor DJ)
Who never let us down
While the critics kept on knocking you
You just kept on rocking around the dial
Around the dial

I've been searchin' for you on my radio
This time your station really must have gone underground
Somebody said you had a minor nervous breakdown
Was it something that you heard
Or something that you saw
That made you lose your mind
Did you lose control
Did you step out of line?
If you're there, give us a sign

I can't believe that you've been taken off the air
Think I'll sell my radio now that you're not there
You never gave in to fashion
You never followed any trends
All the record bums tried to hack you up
But you were honest to the end

Gonna keep my radio on
'Till I know just what went wrong
The answers out there somewhere on the dial
On the dial
Can you hear me
(Around the dial)
Are you listenin'
(Around the dial)
Are you out there
(Around the dial)
Can you hear me?
Around the dial
