Only The Good Die Young

Billy Joel


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
Aw, but they never told you the price that you pay
For things that you might have done

Well, only the good die young
That's what I said
Only the good die young
Only the good die young

You might-a 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
Aw, 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

Darling, only the good die young
Oh, oh
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 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
The sinners are much more fun

You know that only the good die young
Oh, baby
I tell ya 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
Aw, she never cared for me
But did she ever say a prayer for me?
Oh, oh

Come out, come out, 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

You know that only the good die young
Tell you, baby
You know that only the good die young
Only the good die young

Only the good
Only the good die young
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Only the good die young
Only the good die young
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
