Only the Good Die Young
Billy Joel

Lyrics

Come out, Virginia, don't let me wait,
you Catholic girls start much too late.
Oh, but sooner or later when it comes down to fate,
I might as well be the one.
Well, they showed you a statue, told you to pray.
They built you a temple and locked you away.
Oh, but they never told you the price that you pay for things that you might have done.
Darlin', only the good die young.
That's what I said.
Well, only the good die young,
only the good die young.
You might have heard I run with a dangerous crowd,
we ain't too pretty, we ain't too proud.
We might be laughin' a bit too loud,
aw, but that never hurt no one.
So come on, Virginia, show me a sign.
Send up a signal, I'll throw you a line.
The stained-glass curtain you're hiding behind never lets in the sun.
Darlin', only the good die young!
Woah, oh, woah, oh, oh, oh, oh.
I tell you only the good die young,
only the good die young.
You got a nice white dress, and a party on your confirmation.
You got a brand new soul,
hmm, and a cross of gold.
But Virginia, they didn't give you quite enough information.
Oh, you didn't count on me,
when you were countin' on your rosary.
Oh, oh, oh, and they say there's a heaven for those who will wait.
Some say it's better, but I say it ain't.
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints,
the sinners are much more fun!
Darlin', only the good die young.
Tell ya, baby...
Well, only the good die young,
only the good die young!
Said your mama told all that I could give you was a reputation!
She never cared for me,
but did she ever say a prayer for me?
No, no, no, come out, come out, come out,
Virginia, don't let me wait.
You Catholic girls, start much too late.
Sooner or later it comes down to fate,
I might as well be the one.
You know that only the good die young.
Tell you, baby,
oh, only the good die young.
Only the good die young.
Only the good, ooh!
Only the good die young!
Woo ooh, ooh, oooh!
Woo ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, oh!
