"You Don't Tell Me" lyrics - LAVERN BAKER

"You Don't Tell Me"

You don't teach a kid to drink milk
Or a mackerel to swim in the sea
And when the magic hour approaches lovers
You don't tell me

You don't teach the ocean to roll
Or an Englishman how to drink tea
And when affection starts to take me over
You don't tell me

Only yesterday, I was green as May
Now I have to say
How nice to see the symptoms or beyond
Have an option on you

Oh, I'm as young as I ever will be
I really understand the moment of truth
You don't tell me

You don't tell me
No, no, don't tell me
