    cprintf() formatting text

    How can I get these to be on different lines? I am converted from cout << so that I can use color, Ive never used cprintf before.

    Code:
       	textcolor(LIGHTCYAN);
    cprintf("***********************");
    cprintf("***************************");
    cprintf("*****      blahblah      *****");
    cprintf("**** blabblahblahblah ****");
    cprintf("***************************");
    cprintf("*************************");

    When I add \n what I get is this
    Code:
    ***************
                                   ****************
                                                                   *******************
                                                                                                        **
    ************
                            *********
