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, and I might as well be the one
They showed you a statue and told you to pray
They built you a temple and they locked you away
But they never told you the price that you pay 4 the things that U might have done

Only the good die young, that's right...Only the good die young...

Well you've heard I run with a dangerous crowd, we ain't too pretty, we ain't 2 proud
We might be laughing a bit too loud, aw, but that never hurt no one
So, come on, Virginia, now, show me a sign, send up a signal & I'll throw U the line
The stained-glass curtain, you're hiding behind, never lets in the sun

And only the good die young, I said only the good die young

You got a nice white dress and a party on your confirmation
Oh you got a brand new soul, yeah and a cross of gold
Mmm, but Virginia, they didn't give you quite enough information
No 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 w/the sinners than cry w/the saints, the sinners are much more fun

And only the good die young, that's right and I say, mmm & only the good die young

(It's here. Big question, Mark, here, is I don't like this part)
Na na na...Da da da da da da da da da da da...

You said your mother told you all that I could give you was a reputation
Oh, 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 and I wanna be the one

You know that only the good die young, that's right and I say
Don't you know that only the good die young, uh huh, you and I
Only the good die young, uh huh, only the good die young, only the good die young
