Come out Virginia, don't let me waitYou Catholic girls start much too lateAw But sooner or later it comes down to fateI might as well be the one
Well, They showed you a statue, told you to prayThey built you a temple and locked you awayBut they never told you the price that you payFor things that you might have done...Only the good die youngThat's what I saidOnly the good die young x2
You might have heard I run with a dangerous crowdWe ain't too pretty we ain't too proudWe might be laughing a bit too loudAw But that never hurt no one
So come on Virginia show me a signSend up a signal I'll throw you the lineThe stained-glass curtain you're hiding behindNever lets in the sunDarlin' only the good die youngI tell yaOnly the good die young x2
You got a nice white dress and a party on your ConfirmationYou got a brand new soulMmm, And a Cross of goldBut Virginia they didn't give you quite enough informationYou didn't count on meWhen you were counting on your Rosary
They say there's a Heaven for those who will waitSome say it's better but I say it ain'tI'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saintsThe sinners are much more fun...
You know that only the good die youngOh woah babyI tell yaOnly the good die young, X2
You say your mother told you all that I could give you was a reputationAww She never cared for meBut did she ever say a prayer for me? woah woah woah
