Andrew Gold : "Never Let Her Slip Away" lyrics

Andrew Gold - Never Let Her Slip Away
"Never Let Her Slip Away" lyrics
by Andrew Gold

I talked to my baby on the telephone
Long distance
I never would've guessed
I could miss someone so bad
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 school date
I feel like the lead in "Romeo & Juliet"
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'll 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
'Cause she's good for me
And it would really make me happy
To never let her slip away

Mmmmmm 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
Oh I know it's gonna make me happy
To never let her slip away

"Never Let Her Slip Away" is a song written by Andrew Gold, who recorded it for his third album, All This and Heaven Too. The single reached #5 on the UK Singles Chart chart and #67 on theBillboard Hot 100 in 1978. Freddie Mercury, in an uncredited appearance, recorded sparse backing vocals with Gold, to support Gold's separately recorded lead vocal. Mercury's harmony vocals are low in the mix; he is most audible on the "on a school day afternoon" refrain. In 1992, Undercover also had a #5 UK hit with the song. (source: Wikipedia)
