Tell Her About It
Billy Joel Lyrics


Listen boy
I don't want to see you let a good thing
Slip away

You know I don't like watching
Anybody make the same mistakes
I made

She's a real nice girl
And she's always there for you
But a nice girl wouldn't tell you what you should do

Listen boy
I'm sure that you think you got it all
Under control

You don't want somebody telling you
The way to stay in someone's soul

You're a big boy now
You'll never let her go
But that's just the kind of thing
She ought to know

Tell her about it
Tell her everything you feel
Give her every reason to accept
That you're for real

Tell her about it
Tell her all your crazy dreams
Let her know you need her
Let her know how much she means

Listen boy
It's not automatically a certain guarantee
To insure yourself
You've got to provide communication constantly

When you love someone
You're always insecure
And there's only one good way
To reassure

Tell her about it
Let her know how much you care
When she can't be with you
Tell her you wish you were there

Tell her about it
Every day before you leave
Pay her some attention
Give her something to believe

'Cause now and then
She'll get to worrying
Just because you haven't spoken
For so long
Though you may not have done anything
Will that be a consolation when she's gone

Listen boy
It's good information from a man
Who's made mistakes

Just a word or two that she gets from you
Could be the difference that it makes

She's a trusting soul
She's put her trust in you
But a girl like that won't tell you
What you should do

Tell her about it
Tell her everything you feel
Give her every reason
To accept that you're for real

Tell her about it
Tell her all your crazy dreams
Let her know you need her
Let her know how much she means

Tell her about it
Tell her how you feel right now
Tell her about it
The girl don't want to wait too long
You got to tell her about it
Tell her now and you won't go wrong
You got to tell her about it
Before it gets too late
You got to tell her about it
You know the girl don't want
To wait, you got to
Tell her about it

I've just realised how many songs Billy Joel actually sings that I didn't know were his

Sean Scanlon

@hekkoCZ It's Still Rock and Roll to Me is from 1980.

Ultraviolet Morgan Tarot

There were a few I didn't realize where his when I was a kid. Certainly not this one. Lol. But the Alexa song and you may be right.

Sean Scanlon

@Donovan Youtube In 1983, Billy Joel released his album An Innocent Man, an album that traces Joel's musical history through his teenage years in the late '50s and early '60s. Watch the official music video for 'Tell Her About It', which became the #1 song on Billboard Hot 100 chart and was written as an homage to Motown.

Josh Levinsky

Same. I think it's because your first reaction when his music comes on the radio is, "Wow, this is total shit. Can't be Billy Joel, everybody says he's great."
