“Only The Good Die Young” by Billy Joel
You Catholic girls start much too late
But sooner or later it comes down to fate
I might as well be the one.
But they never told you the price that you pay
For things that you might have done…
We ain’t too pretty, we ain’t too proud
We might be laughing a bit too loud
But that never hurt no one
Send up a signal, I’ll throw you the line
The stained-glass curtain you’re hiding behind
Never lets in the sun.
Darling, only the good die young
You got a brand new soul,
