Only The Good Die Young Lyrics

Come out, Virginia-

Don't let me wait.

You Catholic girls start much too late.

Ah! But sooner or later it comes down to fate.

I might as well will be the one.

Well they showed you a statue-

Told you to pray.

They built you a temple and locked you away.

Ah! But they never told you the price it would pay.

The things that you might have done...

Only the good die young.

That's what I said!

Only the good die young.

Only the good die young...

You mighta 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.

Ah! 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 hidin' behind-

Never lets in the sun...

Darlin' only the good die young!

Oh woe woe woe woe!

I tell ya only the good die young.

Only the good die young...

You got a nice white dress and a party on your confirmation!

You've got a brand new soul.

Mmm, and a cross of gold.

But Virginia they didn't give you quite enough information!

You didn't count on me-

When you were counting on your rosary.

Oh woe woe!

And they say there's a Heaven,
And those who will wait.

And 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...

You know that only the good die young!

Oh woe woe baby bay!

I tell ya only the good die young!

Only the good die young...

Said your mother told you all that I could give you was a reputation!

Ah! She never cared for me.

But did she ever say a prayer for me?

Oh woe woe!

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 will be the one...

You know that only the good die young!

Tell ya baby!

You know that only the good die young!

Only the good die young.

Only the gooood!

Only the good die young.

Oo oo oooo

Oo!

Oo oo oo oo

Oooo oo!

Oo oo oo

Oo!

Oo oo oo oo

Oooo oo!

Oo oo oooo

Oo!

Oo oo oo oo

Oooo oo!

Only the good die young!

Only the good die young...
