Turn Me On
John D. Loudermilk
Recording sessions
1967 June 13-29: New York RCA Studios
Like a flower waiting to bloom
Like a light bulb in a dark room
I'm here waiting for you
To come on home and turn me on

Like the desert waiting for rain
Like a school kid waiting for spring
I'm sitting here waiting for you
To come on back home and turn me on

My poor heart it's been so dark
Since you've been gone
After all you're the one that turned me off
Now you're the only one that can turn me back on

Wooh my hi-fi is waiting for a new tune
And my glass is waiting for some fresh ice-cubes
I'm just sitting here waiting for you
To come home and turn me on
