    Lyrics

    Come out, Virginia. Don't let me wait.
    You Catholic girls start much too late,
    Oh, but sooner or later, it comes down to fate.
    I might as well be the one.

    Well, they showed you a statue, told you to pray.
    They built you a temple and locked you away,
    Oh, 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've 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,
    Oh, but that never hurt no one.

    So come on, Virginia, show me a sign,
    Send up a signal. I'll throw you a line.
    The stained-glass curtain you're hiding behind
    Never lets in the sun,
    Darlin' only the good die young
    Whoo whoo whoo whoo whoo
    I tell ya, only the good die young
    Only the good die young

    You got a nice white dress and a party on your confirmation.
    You got a brand new soul
    Mmmmm, 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.
    Oh oh ooh

    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,
    Ya know that only the good die young
    Ho ho ho baby
    I tell ya, only the good die young
    Only the good die young

    You say your mother told you all that I could give you was a reputation.
    Ohh,she never cared for me,
    Did she ever say a prayer for me?
    Oh oh ohh

    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.
    I might as well be the one
    Ya know that only the good die young
    Tell ya baby
    Ya know that only the good die young
    Only the good die young
    Only the good
    Only the good die young
    Whoo whoo whoo whoo whooo....
