Akira The Don & Berton Braley – TELL THEM NOW

TELL THEM NOW Lyrics


If with pleasure you are viewing
Any work someone is doing
If you like them or you love them, tell them now

Don’t withhold your approbation
Till the parson makes oration
And they lie with snowy lilies on their brow

No matter how you shout it
They won’t really care about it;
They won’t know how many teardrops you have shed
If you think some praise is due them
Now’s the time to slip it to them
For they cannot read their tombstone when they’re dead

More than famе and more than money
Is the commеnt kind and sunny
And the hearty, warm approval of a friend
For it gives to life a savor
And it makes you stronger, braver
And it gives you heart and spirit to the end

=”true”


If she earns your praise — bestow it
If you like him him know it
Let the words of true encouragement be said
Do not wait till life is over
And they’re underneath the clover
For they cannot read their tombstone when they’re dead

If with pleasure you are viewing
Any work a man is doing
If you like him or you love him, tell him now

Don’t withhold your approbation
Till the parson makes oration
And he lies with snowy lilies on his brow;

No matter how you shout it
He won’t really care about it
He won’t know how many teardrops you have shed
If you think some praise is due him
Now’s the time to slip it to him
For he cannot read his tombstone when he’s dead

More than fame and more than money
Is the comment kind and sunny
And the hearty, warm approval of a friend
For it gives to life a savor
And it makes you stronger, braver
And it gives you heart and spirit to the end


If he earns your praise — bestow it
If you like him let him know it
Let the words of true encouragement be said
Do not wait till life is over
And he’s underneath the clover
For he cannot read his tombstone when he’s dead
