Too Young Lyrics

by Elton John

Your mother's eyes
Look straight through me
Whenever we meet
Your father swears
It'll never be
As long as he breathes

And how many times
(Ooo)
Have they told you
That you're too young?
How, how I ached to hold you?
(Ooo)
But you're too young
(Aaa)

If we don't buy
What's right or wrong?
Then we are sinners
We were never two
To tag along
But we were always winners

And how many people
(Ooo)
Have told you
That you're too young?
And how many jealous hands
(How many?)
Would love to hold you
(Ooo)
'Cause you're too young?
(Aaa)

Well you're too young to love me
And I'm too old for you
At least that's what they tell us
It's in their book of rules
That you're too young
Too young baby you're too young
We could try it for a while
Mm but they'd get us in the long run
They say that you're too young
Baby you're too young

Baby
Your mother's eyes
Look straight through me
Whenever we meet
Ohh, whenever we meet
Your father swears
(Oo oo, oo oo)
Mm mm it'll never be, never be
As long as he breathes
(Oo oo, oo oo oo ooo)

And how many times
(How many times?)
Oh have they told you
That you're too young?
(Young)
How, how I've ached to hold you?
(Aaa)
But you're too young
(Aaa)

But you're too young to hold me
And I'm too old for you
At least that's what they tell us
You know it's in their book of rules
That you're too young
Too young baby you're too young
Oh we could try it for a while
But they'd get us in the end
They say that you're too young
Baby you're too young

Oh that would get us in the end
They say that you're too young
Baby you're too young
Baby, baby oh you're too young
They say that you're too young
Baby you're too young
Baby, baby oh you're too young
They say that you're too young
Baby you're too young
Baby, baby oh you're too young
They say that you're too young
Baby you're too young
