Last updated: 10/08/2009 11:00:00 AM

Come out Virginia, don't let me wait
You Catholic girls start much too late
Aw but sooner or later 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
But they never told you the price that you pay
For 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 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
So 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, darlin’ only the good die young
That’s right, 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, ooh, 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 woah woah

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, that’s right
Only the good die young, only the good die young

You said your mother told you all that I could give you was a reputation
She never cared for me, did she ever say a prayer for me? oh wo wo

Come out come out come out Virgina don’t let me wait,
You Catholic girls start much too late
Sooner or later it comes down to fate
I wanna be the one, darlin’ you know only the good die young
That’s what I said, only the good die young, only the good die young
Only the gooooooooooooooood, ooh ooh ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh ooh oooooooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh, ooh, ooh
