Come out Virginia don't let me wait
Catholic girls start much too late
But sooner or later it comes down to fate
I might as well be the one

Well they showed you a statue and told you to pray
They built you a temple and locked you away
But they never told you the price you would pay
For things that you might have done

Only the good die young [Repeat: x 4]

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
But that would never hurt no one

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

And only the good die young
Only the good die young [Repeat: x 3]

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 never count on me, when you considered trying sodomy

They say there's a heaven for those who'll wait
Some say it's better but I say it ain't
I'd rather laugh with the punks than cry with the saints
Smokers have much more fun

And only the good die young
Only the good die young [Repeat: x 3]
Yeah!

You say your mother told you all that I could give you was some mild abrasions
She never cared for me, but did she ever say a prayer for me

Come out, come out, Virginia don't let me wait
Catholic girls start much too late
Sooner or later it comes down to fate
I might as well be the one

Only the good die young [Repeat: x 4]
Only the good, yeah
Only the good die young [Repeat: x 3]

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Huh!
