Billy Joel Only The Good Die Young (Kohuept) Lyrics

Last updated: 09/27/2009 11:00:00 AM

Come out Virginia, don't let 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
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, 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 what I said
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, oh, 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

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’ you know only the good die young, how am I doin’, mom?
Only the good die young

U said your mother told U all that I could give U was a reputation
She never cared for me
But did she ever say a prayer for me? Oh woah woah

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
‘Cos darlin’ you know only the good die young, that’s what I’ll say
Only the good die young, only the good die young
Only the gooooooooooooooood, only the good die young
Woo ooh ooh, ooh ooh, woo ooh ooh ooooooh oooooh
