Track Title: Tell It Like It Is Album Title: Greatest Hits Prime Artist: Heart Originally made famous by: Aaron Neville Producer: Heart Written by: Lee Diamond Written by: George Davis Lyrics: If you want something to play with Gm C7 F Fmaj7/C F6 Go and find yourself a toy D7/F# C7/G Gm C7 Baby my time is too expensive Gm C7 F Fmaj7/C F6 And I'm not a little boy Am Dm If you are serious Am Dm Don't play with my heart, it makes me furious Am Bb But if you want me to love you C Bb/C Am/C Then baby I will, girl you know I will Verse 2: C7 Tell it like it is Don't be ashamed to let your conscience be your guide But I... know deep down inside of me I believe you love me Forget your foolish pride Life is too short to have sorrow We may be here today and gone tomorrow You might as well get what you want So go on and live, baby go on and live Coda [repeat first half of verse 2]: Tell it like it is I'm nothing to play with Go and find yourself a toy But I... tell it like it is My time is too expensive And I'm not your little boy Tell it like it is... [fade] Notes: 1) The above is the arrangement from the original single (Parlo 101); a much slower 1972 re-recording appears on far too many oldies comps. 2) The guitar part is mostly played in 6ths. Over the C7/G...Gm... etc. progression it's: 1 1 1 1 xxx2x2 xxx0x0 xxx9x8 xxx9x8 want... some... with... your... ...; over the F Fmaj7/C F6 [D7/F#] it's all xxx5x5 since the C and A are common to all of the chords. 3) The D7/F# sounds like it might be F#dim, but careful listening reveals a D (not a D#) in the right-hand piano voicing.
