Gold, Andrew - Never Let Her Slip Away Lyrics

I talked to my baby on the telephone long distance
I never would've guessed I could miss someone so bad, yeah
I really only met her 'bout a week ago
But it doesn't seem to matter to my heart
I know that I love her
I'm hoping that I never recover
'Cause she's good for me
And it would really make me happy
To never let her slip away

I feel like a kid with a teenage crush on a schoolday
(On a schoolday afternoon)
I feel like the lead in Romeo and Juliet, yeah
I'm a little bit dizzy, I'm a little bit scared
I guess I never felt this much aware
That I'd love her
I'm hoping that I never recover
'Cause she's good for me
And it would really make me happy
To never let her slip away

I really only met her 'bout a week ago
But it doesn't seem to matter to my heart
I know that I love her
I'm hoping that I never recover
Yeah, she's good to me
And it would really make me happy
To never let her slip away

Mm, I love her
I'm thinking that I never recover
Yeah, she's good for me
I know it's gonna make me happy
To never let her slip away
Oh, I know it's gonna make me happy
To never let her slip away

    I'm going to hunt you down
    And I will find you.
    You have been warned.

  5. Dave Speed

    Lovely mellow song. This chap was so good. I believe Freddie Mercury was on backing vocals. Total class.

  6. tz125r

    I love this song it takes me back to my youth and a time where i had a teenage crush on a girl who thought I wasn’t good enough for her. Happily I’ve since met the girl of my dreams, she’s perfect in every way.

  37. valerie greig

    Loved this song back in the day brings back so many memories

  38. sjoerd van vliet

    I do. Classic quality

  39. Kim Selbert

    I have always loved this song. Andrew was a classmate of mine in high school and we'd often sing the latest Beatles' songs during break times. Miss you Andrew!

  40. Dudeitsmeee

    Dave Grohl was RIGHT!

  41. Mr Nougat

    I used to work in a supermakert and this was on a loop along with Leo Sayer etc. Listen to it 100 plus times and it wouldn't be so special.

  42. Ken Perk

    The tune sounds like it should have been on one of the very old westerns as the two cow pokes ride slowly off into the sunset.

  43. Joe Seal

    Been with my wife nearly 20 years, and I'm only 37, she's part of me

  44. Dave Robson

    Helen Waldron

    Agreed! 👍

  47. Andrew Parr


  48. Marcus Alexander

    Thats a good song , i miss this stuff

  49. JT Michaelson

    This song was released just three days after my 10th birthday. I remember that Summer; I got my first kiss from a girl named Alicia, had a tiny crew of good friends that played with our Star Wars action figures, and had very little worry in the world. My older brother had this album, All This And Heaven Too, and it was this song that was played more in our bedroom than "Thank You For Being A Friend". This song was over my head then but the melody keeps coming back to take me back to St. Pete, Florida that hot and long summer.

    To all mocking the Freddie Mercury story and saying he's not credited, Jagger didn't receive a credit for backing vocals on You're so Vain but he was there.

    Takes me back when I was in highschool. We have a late 70's and mid 80's theme of prom. It was played when I was dancing my crush. Now she's my girlfriend and we're happy for 3 years now.

  57. renz1347713

    This song somewhat sounds like the theme song of Harvest Moon

  58. Stephen Birks

    The great Ernie Watts on Saxaphone

  59. london19657

    Well, my memory of this song was hearing it on a small transistor radio, on a sunday evening riding home on a train,overland with the sun going down.,,,,it was probably the top 40 countdown..and I was about fifteen and couldn't even imagine even having a girlfriend. An imagination helped back then.p.s. I'm married now, thanks

  60. Steve Harrison

    Sheesh, not heard this since I was a little nipper. Welcome back, old friend.

  61. Lisette Heilman

    Just makes me happy the memories this song brings.

    Ken Perk

    In the game of love in the 70s, I lost much more often than I won. Love this painful song.

    Lisette Heilman

    @Ken Perk the pursuit was the fun part. Plotting and planning. To keep contact with that person you met on a vacation for a week. This was the song I'd sing for months. I'm sorry it makes you sad.

  62. Train Sail

    'I feel like a kid with a teenage crush on a schoolday afternoon'. now that line takes me back. How many of those did I have back then.

  63. Caris Steadman


  64. Daniella de groote

  67. Joe Butler

    He was a part of that 70's Southern California thing-linda Ronstadt, the eagles, waddy Wachtel, etc and if you listen to the drum beat, it's pretty much exactly what the Eagles used on the song "Heartache Tonight"

  68. juliel ladlow


  69. trapper561

  71. kath briers

  77. louth1770

    Growing up listening to this genre of music makes one soul richer and happy, reminiscent of what had been innocently sweet and simple. Even in 2019

  78. David Richardson

    We had the best music in the 70s and the best weather ....I could be wrong...But ?

  79. Mark Hall

  81. Bryan Montague

    This and Gerry Raffertys "Baker Street" were two the of best singles that came out in 1978. Doesn't get much better than that...

  82. Nicolas BC

    80's vibe but was 1977. Andrew Gold was a man ahead of his time

  83. skulptor

    a true time machine. Teenager on holiday again rather than an old baldie.

  84. Gods Vibes

    I use play this all the time in my teens, still love it - brings back Great Memories, thanks for sharing, gave my old soul a lift 😎before 💥🤓now

  85. Sailfire1

    The heartbeat in this song is so clever. It connects to your soul, allowing the innocent, heartfelt lyrics to trickle into your emotions along with the easy beat and butterfly reeds.

  86. neil nichol

    What. A. Tune. The sax. Smiley face. X

  87. Skooma Much

    "Somebody's gonna hurt someone
    "before the night is through" 🎵🎵🎵

    Here because this is the same guy who wrote Spooky Scary Skeletons

  89. Linxy Wun

    Had this stuck in my head for almost a week... can't complain 😁 proper music!! Shame we don't have stuff like this these days ☹️

  90. Fae Browne

    Rewind to the 70's in England. My junior school teacher would put the radio on and allow us to have a bit of a dance around the classroom! I loved this song. RIP Miss Murphy.

  91. zeze do bone

    Don't be a liar!!!
    You took her from me, and gave her to other guy...
    That's one the reasons I decided to help the 'special team'!!! Now you have your hands tied!!! You can't do nothing at all to take me away from here!!!!
    It's gone!
    End of all hope....
    All you can do is dream!!!...
    Bye bye bye

    Love this song x

  93. Meladisinné

    Pre Birthday music...Such a Favourite 💙

  94. Andrew Matthews

    so sad most of the comments are so old people should be listening to these great old songs instead of today's so called music .😧

  95. Martha Gill

    Written about Laraine Newman (SNL) when she was Gold's girlfriend.

  96. Bob Radford

    In March 1978 this song reached no5 in the British Charts. Why not number ? 1 not sure., but one thing is for sure it's a great great song.

  97. Daniella de groote

    mem's x

  98. Brenda Scott

    My all time favourite song.
