Listen boy

A lesson or two from Billy Joel - He knows what's up.

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

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

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
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
