Billy Joel
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

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 that
you pay
For things that you might have done
Only the good die young

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 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
Never lets in the sun
And only the good die young

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 didn't count on me
When you were counting on your rosary
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
Sinners are much more fun
And only the good die young
You say your mother told you all that I
could give you was a reputation
She never cared for me
But did she ever say a prayer for me?
