Billy Joel Only The Good Die Young Lyrics    [  Edit 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 and told you to pray

They built you a temple and locked you away

Ah 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

Ah but that never hurt noone


So come on Virginia show me a sign

Send up a signal I`ll throw you a line

That stained glass curtain you`re hiding behind

Never lets in the sun


Darlin only the good die young

I tell you only the good die young

Only the good die young


You get a nice white dress

And a party on your confirmation

You`ve got a brand new soul

Mm 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

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


You know that only the good die young

I tell you only the good die young

Only the good die young


You said your mother told you

All I could give you was a reputation

Ah she never cared for me

But did she ever say a prayer for me?


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 you baby

You know that only the good die young
