Billy Joel Get It Right The First Time Lyrics

Last updated: 06/15/2006 11:00:00 AM

I don't believe in first impressions
For just this once I hope that looks don't deceive
I ain't got time for true confessions
I've got to make the move right now
Got to meet that girl somehow

Get it right the first time
That's the main thing
I can't afford to let it pass
Get it right the next time
That's not the same thing
Gonna make the first time last.

I'm not much good at conversation
I never was much good at comin' on real strong
If all it takes is inspiration
Then I might have just what it takes
If I don't make no bad mistakes and I

Get it right the first time
Cause that's the main thing
Can't afford to let it pass
Get it right the next time
That's not the same thing
Gonna make the first time last

I might find the courage yeah I might get up the nerve
Oh but if my timing ain't just right what purpose would that serve?
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know how
To say those first few words
If I want to put myself in touch
The first few moments mean so much

So I suppose it's now or never
Before that woman walks right out of my life
Just let me pull myself together
I've got to give it one good try
Gotta take my chance tonight

Get it right the first time
That's the main thing
I can't afford to let it pass
Get it right the next time
That's not the same thing
Gonna make the first time last.
