Cole, Nat King - Let Me Tell You Babe Lyrics




Let me tell you, babe
You got me crazy
You got your head in
Those big white clouds

Let me tell you, babe
You got me crazy
You don't know, girl
What life's all about

Let me tell you, babe
You must be dreaming
The world ain't spinning
Just for you alone

Let me tell you, babe
You must be dreaming
'Cause it's rough, girl
Out there on your own

And love that's worth your salt
Don't grow on trees
It won't show upon
Every breeze that blows

It beats me, honey
How your eyes don't see
They just don't see what's
Right in front of your nose

Let me tell you, babe
You just ain't thinking
The grass ain't greener
On that side of town

Let me tell you, babe
You know I need you
If you stay, girl
I won't let you down

(Let me tell you, babe)
If you stay, girl
(Let me tell you, babe)
I won't let you down

(Let me tell you, babe)
If you stay, girl
(Let me tell you, babe)
I won't let you down

    I would love to have a set of cords to play this on the guitar, I love this tune.

  2. donnafatbaby

    Great song. I woke up with this song on my mind

  3. Mike Britcom

    It may have been his last Capitol single in 1966, but it was recorded in January 1964. James Burton and Glen Campbell on guitars, I believe.

    Richard Goddard

    Wonderful indeed; catchy, you can't turn it off; Burton and Campbell are huge-the best guitarists.

  4. france jackson-ashley

    wonderful

    It was never put on an album. It was the last single he recorded.

    I'm pretty sure it was on an album. I think I have it, but don't know where it is at the moment to confirm. It wasn't one of his big seller albums, though.

    before youtube i searched high and low for this song. From 1969 til now. Its great.

    I used to hear it on a juke box but could never find it.

    I heard it over the speakers as I was going golfing with my dad and had a hard time finding it (pre You-Tube) but eventually found it on an obscure album. But I don't know where the album is now and wanted to put it on my iPhone playlist. Still gotta figure that one out, but at least I can listen here!
