Tell Him
The Exciters Lyrics


I know something about love
You've gotta want it bad
If that guy's got into your blood
Go out and get him
If you want him to be
The very heart of you
Makes you want to breathe
Here's the thing to do

Tell him that you're never gonna leave him
Tell him that you're always gonna love him
Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now

I know something about love
You gotta show it and
Make him see the moon up above
Out and get him
If you want him to be
Always by your side
If you want him to
Only think of you

Tell him that you're never gonna leave him
Tell him that you're always gonna love him
Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now

Ever since the world began, it's been that way for man
And women were created
To make love their destiny
Then why should true love be so complicated, oh yeah?

I know something about love
You gotta take his hand
Show him what the world is made of
One kiss will prove it
If you want him to be
Always by your side
Take his hand tonight
Swallow your foolish pride

Tell him that you're never gonna leave him
Tell him that you're always gonna love him
Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now

Oh, you hafta tell him now (tell him that you're never gonna leave him)
Oh yeah (tell him that you're always gonna love him)
Yeah (tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now)

Darling, don't you let him go, now (tell him that you're never gonna leave him)
Oh yeah (tell him that you're always gonna love him)
Yeah (tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now)

Take his hand in yours and tell him (tell him that you're never gonna leave him)
Oh yeah (tell him that you're always gonna love him)

One of my Grandad’s favorites. He told me once that this song is how my grandma subtly told him she was interested in him during a thunderstorm in 1968. He took the hint. Match made in heaven. They were happily married until Nana’s death fifty years later.

@Barry Rudge not exactly young per se… 70 years… still a shock though as everyone thought she’d live another twenty or thirty years.

Erik Reichmann

Such a beautiful story. Thank you for sharing it with us.

It doesn't get any better than this.....fresh, clean, upbeat and makes you wanna move! Thanks for posting

@Ray Gaskell no one in the U.S. had heard of the Beatles in 1962. It was all about American rock 'n roll, and R&B.

@Timothy Thorne This wasn't before them though, but there was some...but not much.

Timothy Thorne

I agree. Great music did exist before the Beatles, contrary to what many people believe

Sounds as good now as it did in 1963. Thanks for posting this old rock gem!

Anthony Mills

@Graham Ward it wasn't the original, that honour belongs to Gil Hamilton as Tell Her. It was written by Bert Berns of Twist and shout and Hang on sloopy fame so no wonder it's a great song. It was covered in the UK (we always had a UK cover version in those days) by Billy Davis getting to No 10 . The Exciters only got to No 46 sadly.
