Billy Joel's 1977 "Only The Good Die Young" with lyrics below. Enjoy!
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
