"No Tell Lover" is a song written by Peter Cetera, Lee Loughnane, and Danny Seraphine for the group Chicago and recorded for their album Hot Streets (1978), with Cetera and Donnie Dacus singing lead vocals. The second single released from that album, it reached #14 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart and #5 on the adult contemporary chart.[1]

After "No Tell Lover", Chicago failed to chart a single in the U.S. top fifty for nearly four years, finally breaking their slump with the 1982 number-one hit "Hard to Say I'm Sorry".
