The Lyrics Are Below


Billy Joel

Get It Right the First Time



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



I've gotta get it right the first time

That's the main thing

I can't afford to let it pass

You get it right the next time

That's not the same thing

Gonna have to make the first time last.


I'm not much good at conversation

I never was too 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




I might find the courage

Yeah I might get up the nerve

But if my timing ain't just right

What purpose would it 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 taake my chance tonight
