112 - You Said Lyrics
The users who voted to close gave this specific reason: "Please include the research you've done, or consider if your question suits our English Language Learners site better. Questions that can be answered using commonly-available references are off-topic. RedGrittyBrick has the correct answer, but has somewhat hidden it in an over-explanation. So I will spell it out clearly.
Never substitute I said you for I told you , if what you mean is that you told somebody something earlier and you are reminding them of that fact now. Said requires the preposition to to get close to the same thing: I said to you. Even then, however, said never takes a direct object that is not some kind of a reference to words. I said do it.
I said nothing. Tell can take a person as a direct object. I told Bob. I'm telling you now. You would not use it to mean said because it does not take someone's utterance as a direct object. You would never say I told go , because that would mean you are telling the word "go" something.
You would say, I said go. Reminding someone of something they have forgotten you said to them.
The Good, The Bad, and The Obvious
Sometimes this is abbreviated to "I told you so" or even "I told you". Though the latter seems to me a bit ugly as an isolated sentence. Another way to explain how: The verb 'said' doesn't take an indirect object. In other words, it doesn't answer the question 'whom' put after the verb, like, 'I said whom?
1. Use all dialogue tags sparingly
On the other hand, 'I told whom? The verb, 'said' may answer the question 'what' put after it and not the question, 'whom'. But the verb 'told' can answer both questions,'what' and 'whom' put after it.
