TELL HER ABOUT IT
Billy Joel
 
[Intro] A G D (2x)
 
[Verse 1]
     A                                         G               D 
    Listen boy, I don't want to see you let a good thing slip away 
                A                                     G              D 
    You know I don't like watching anybody make the same mistakes I made 
            C#m                      C                Bm
    She's a real nice girl and she's always there for you 
           Dm                A/C#                     Bm E
    But a nice girl wouldn't tell you what you should do 
 
         A                                              G            D 
    Oh, listen boy, I'm sure that you think you got it all under control 
               A                                     G                D 
    You don't want somebody telling you the way to stay in someone's soul 
             C#m                     C            Bm
    You're a big boy now and you'll never let her go 
         Dm                     A/C#                Bm  A B
    But that's just the kind of thing she ought to know 

[Chorus 1]
     E                          G#m
    Tell her about it, tell her everything you feel 
    C#m            C#m7        F#m7                 B7sus4
    Give her every reason to accept that you're for real 
     E                          G#m
    Tell her about it, tell her all your crazy dreams 
    C#m              C#m7              F#m7              B7sus4 B7
    Let her know you need her, let her know how much she means 
 
[Interlude] A G D (2x)
            Ohoo                       
 
[Verse 2]
     A                                      G            D 
    Listen, boy, it's not automatically a certain guarantee
          A                                           G             D 
    To insure yourself, you've got to provide communication constantly 
             C#m                 C           Bm
    When you love someone you're always insecure 
                Dm            A/C#        Bm A B
    And there's only one good way to reassure 

[Chorus 2]
     E                         G#m
    Tell her about it, let her know how much you care 
    C#m               C#m7               F#m7              B7sus4
    When she can't be with you, tell her you wish you were there 
     E                      G#m
    Tell her about it every day before you leave 
    C#m            C#m7              F#m7           B7sus4 B7
    Pay her some attention, give her something to believe  
 
[Bridge]
   G                Em                 F
    'Cause now and then she'll get to worrying 
      G     Am                D             Em D/F#
    Just because you haven't spoken for so long 
          G                 Em       F
    And though you may not have done anything 
     G        Am         D                B/D# E
    Will that be a consolation when she's gone 
 
     A                                        G                 D 
    Listen boy, it's good information from a man who's made mistakes 
             A                                              G                  D 
    Just a word or two that she gets from you could be the difference that it makes 
            C#m                   C               Bm
    She's a trusting soul, she's put her trust in you 
          Dm                   A/C#                     Bm A B
    But a girl like that won't tell you what you should do 
 
[Chorus 1]
     E                          G#m
    Tell her about it, tell her everything you feel 
    C#m            C#m7        F#m7                 B7sus4
    Give her every reason to accept that you're for real 
     E                          G#m
    Tell her about it, tell her all your crazy dreams 
    C#m              C#m7              F#m7              B7sus4 B7
    Let her know you need her, let her know how much she means 

[Coda]
     A                                   G          D 
    Tell her about it, tell her how you feel right now  
     A                                         G        D 
    Tell her about it, the girl don't want to wait too long 
                 A                                      G         D 
    You got to tell her about it, tell her now and you won't go wrong 
                A                           G        D               A
    You got to tell her about it before it gets too late you got to tell her about it... (fade)
