Only the Good Die Young



Come out Virginia, don't let me me wait

You Catholic girls start much too late

But sooner or later it comes down to fate

I might as well be the one

They showed you a statue and told you to pray

They built you a temple and locked you away

But they never told you the price that you pay

For things that you might have done.....

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 laughing a bit too loud

But that never hurt no one

Come on Virginia show me a sign

Send up a signal I'll throw you the line

The stained-glass curtain you're hiding behind

Never lets in the sun

And only the good die young


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

You got a brand new soul

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


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

Sinners are much more fun...

And only the good die young


You say your mother told you all that I could give you was a reputation

She never cared for me

But did she ever say a prayer for me?
