Romantics, The - Tell It To Carrie Lyrics




I write to her when I've got a problem
She's always there to help me decide them
She's the one that I trust
I tell it to Carrie

I tell her all my thoughts in a letter
With her reply, she makes me feel better
She's the one that I trust
I tell it to Carrie

Oh Carrie, I just don't know how to tell you
I feel I'm getting too dependent and I, I rely on you girl
And I don't know what to do, don't know
And I feel so lost without you

Oh Carrie, I just don't know how to tell you girl
I feel I'm getting too dependent and I, I rely on you girl
And I don't know what to do, don't know
And I feel so lost without you

I don't know what I'd be doin' without her
I can't imagine never knowin' about her
She's the one that I trust
I tell it to Carrie

She's the one that I trust
I tell it to Carrie
She's the one that I trust
I tell it to Carrie

She's the one that I trust
I tell it to Carrie

Romantics, The Tell It To Carrie Comments
  1. Senator Jim Dracula

    This is the single version, superior to the album cut IMO. I first heard this on the "W4 Homegrown" compilation LP.

    Senator Jim Dracula

    Love that Rickenbacker guitar sound...

  2. Otto Greenleaf

    Their music reminds me of 60's rock but their image seemed New Wave. Love this song. Cheers!

  3. kevinsORBIT

    the version i have of this song is on the W4 Homegrown album. i don't know which song i wore out more. this one or The Rockets "lookin for love". people knock detroit because they haven't got a clue. they don't know what a real corned beef sandwich is, a bagel, smoke fish, coney island flint style, the culture, the families, the neighborhoods. yeah winter sucks but not every day of it. every day there is an event. every day there is beauty. i know because i lived in other places. arizona, boston, florida, oregon. they have what they have but when your from detroit you'll find it's the only place that knows you and that's not going to change no matter what building gets knocked down for the so called greater good. get in your cars, boats and motorbikes and cruise to the soundtrack of our lives. Homegrown

  4. Dee Donner Ramone

    Detroit Romanticism 1978. I was there.

  5. Daniel Lucena

    Does anybody know where can I find the other version of Tell it to Carrie?I think it appears on the Best of Romantics.Would you send me the link please? Thanx in advance

    Otto Greenleaf

    Daniel: it was on their first record. Just called "The Romantics".

  6. Jim Frawley

    WABX used to play the single after midnight. When they released the album version I was disappointed.

    Uncle Scroge

    They actually played it during the day too!

  7. alex arolas garcia

    Esta buena canción la compusieron THE ROMANTICS y la cantaron en el año 1978

  8. Walter Fechter

    For Sissy Spacek and William Katt

  9. DrambuieOnTheRocks

    Love this version better than the album version! Awesome music!!

  10. DrambuieOnTheRocks

    Love this version than the original!!

  11. steelydon19

    Hearing this for a first time. Superb! Some common ground with The Knack without trying to steal of The Knack's thunder. Early Hollies-like harmonies.

  12. lixie1

    Used to see these guys all the time at the Firebarn in Syracuse, NY, 78-80. I still have this single too.

  13. Walt Fechter

    This kinda brings out the Ritchie Valens and Buddy Holly in all of us. For  the first time I heard Marshall Crenshaw (and this great band). THANKS for posting this!

  14. Walt Fechter

    I'd like to rename this song, "Tell It To Kelly" (for my junior-high crush). I dig the basic guitar riffs in this one. Clean and simple.

  15. Walt Fechter

    A dash of The Hollies here. For walking arm-in-arm with your gal down a sun-lit sidewalk on the perfect spring day.

  16. Walt Fechter

    John Lennon and Ritchie Valens are smiling down on all those who listen to this. This one goes out to Marshall Crenshaw, The Smithereens and The Plimsouls. "Power-Pop" por vida!

  17. Walt Fechter

    Somehow, I knew that "What I Like About You" was going to be a hit. After the first time I heard it in late '79, I was re-hooked on that throw-back 60s Pop sound. This one has a bit of that guys-hanging-'round-the-street-corner vocal style (bot not true Doo-Wop). A bit guitar "twang" from The Choir ("It's Cold Outside") as well. Special thanks to Little Steven Van Zandt for playing this one last Sunday night (on The Underground Garage Halloween show).

  18. crapple009

    Wally sings lead on the album version for sure though maybe not on the Bomp! version. John sang lead on Roll Over Beethoven back in the club days, though.

  19. Greg Butcher

    gee this sounds like The Hollies singing harmonies. first line brought back memories of when i use to listen to the album back when, great days great music. happy music.

  20. DeetroitRocker

    It is Wally singing the lead.

  21. lixie1

    @hectorsalinasisback It was Wally. At least that's how I remember it. Used to see them at the Firebarn in Syracuse all the time back in the day.

  22. Böbby H. Blänk

    @hectorsalinasisback not sure.... doesn't say

  23. Hector Salinas

    @herbalist110377 Who sings the lead vocals on this song? Is it Wally Palmar or Rich Cole?

  24. kim lombardini

    @housesoccer: I have the original version I can dropbox for you. send me a msg w a good email address

  25. Böbby H. Blänk

    @housesoccer you're welcome

  26. housesoccer

    @herbalist110377 Thanks, I'm not sure what I had as a kid. Perhaps the 45. Still good.

  27. Böbby H. Blänk

  28. housesoccer

    this is different than the version I remember. But a rare great find! Thanks
