    "Almost Eighteen" Lyrics

    Roy Orbison

    Almost eighteen, a lot of sugar and lace
    Almost eighteen with an angel face
    She says, I'm her kind of guy and if I leave her, she'll die, uh, uh

    I'll flip upside down and all the way around
    I'm acting like a clown because I think I've found
    The cream of the crop, I know I'll never stop
    I'll go on lovin' my baby, she's a grown up lady now

    Full skirt, don't flirt, ballerina shoes
    Pin slips, two lips that never sing the blues

    Almost eighteen, a ribbon in her hair
    Almost eighteen, my baby's young and fair
    0h, oh, I'll never let her go because, oh, I love her so, oh, oh

    She's gonna have her birthday then we'll run away
    We're gonna find a preacher, let him be the teacher
    Gonna honeymoon all through the month of June
    Darlin', we'll have a time until we're ninety-nine, yeah, yeah

    Wedding bells gonna ring, we're gonna be together
    I love her, she loves me, our love'll live forever

    Almost eighteen, she's a swingin' queen
    Almost eighteen, oh, what a lovely dream
    Until the end of time, my baby's mine, all mine, uh, uh
    Almost eighteen, almost eighteen, almost eighteen, almost eighteen
