Then, at the end of the night, the priest comes up and gives us like 15 dollars apiece, which in '64 was a fortune! I know that many rock stars didn't wanna make a bunch of hits that would not make them any money. Sooner or later it comes down to fate. Only the good die young. It was dedicated to Mercury and all those who die too soon. I am catholic and was devout. I am absolutly with you. Virginia don't let me wait!

words to only the good die young

Come out, come out, come out! But that never hurt no one. 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'd 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 the sign Send up a signal, I'll throw you the line The stained-glass curtain you're hiding behind Never lets in the sun Darlin', only the good die young, whoa I tell you 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 Mmm, 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, oh 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 You know that only the good die young Oh oh oh, 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 Oh, she never cared for me But did she ever say a prayer for me? Notre Dame's Administration sent a letter to him beforehand, suggesting that it would be a good idea if he were to refrain from playing it. Only the bad die young! I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints. I love how fun it is, and I just love the feel of it. Instead of praying for him to turn out right or be better at least he way they think he should be , the mother only criticizes and judges the individual, in which one isn't supposed to do in religion if I'm correct The only hypocrisy here is the mother in the song, a hypocritical religious woman. Show me a sign- Send up a signal; I'll throw you a line.

She told him she always got a kick from hearing the song on the raido, but never told anyone the song was about her. I personally, however, wouldn't make a hit with such a false message. While some people take the song offensive, i find it funny and true. Oh woah woah Come out come out come out Virgina don't let me wait, You Catholic girls start much too late Sooner or later it comes down to fate I might as well be the one, You know that only the good die young I'm telling you baby You know that only the good die young Only the good die young Only the gooooooooooooooood Only the good die young Only the gooooooooooooooood Only the good die young Ooo ooo ooo. I wanted to write a song about it, about a guy trying to seduce a Catholic girl. High School crush- putting all sorts of religious, anti-Catholic meaning into it is simply psychological projection from the listener. You know that only the good die young Oh woah baby I tell ya Only the good die young, X2 You say your mother told you all that I could give you was a reputation Aww She never cared for me But did she ever say a prayer for me? Sometimes I like to poke fun Catholics too just a little bit.

Billy didn't make it up, he just borrowed it. But did she ever say a prayer for me? It's about a guy trying to seduce a girl but, at the end of the song, she's still chaste and pure and he hasn't got anything. The Ballad of Billy the Kid25. You know that only the good die young! But sooner or later it comes down to fate. He played the regular set and the encore without playing it.

Lyrics for Only The Good Die Young by Billy Joel

words to only the good die young

The demon in your mind will rape you in your bed at night The wisdom of ages, the lies and outrages concealed Time it waits for no man My future it is revealed Time it waits for no man My fate is sealed If I cancel tomorrow the undead will thank me today Fly in the face of your prophets I mock your morality plays The moon is red and bleeding The sun is burned and black The book of life is silent No turning back Only the good die young All the evil seem to live forever Only the good die young All the evil seem to live forever Only the good die young Only the good die young Mystery madman a victim of cruel charade Some innocent pawn in an end game one more stalemate Is death another birthday? Come out, Virginia- Don't let me wait. Do the undead live within us? But he likes her anyway, and I think she likes him, but can't let herself go all the way due to her upbringing. Oh woe woe baby bay! Joel has stated publicly that he changed the to a shuffle beat at the request of his long time drummer, , who hated reggae music. Darlin' only the good die young! But Virginia they didn't give you quite enough information! And they say there's a Heaven, And those who will wait. I might as well will be the one. I'm not Catholic, but I knew several who didn't appreciate the barbs in the song and I agreed with them. It's just a story about a guy who's trying to get a girl laid and is blunt about it.

And I thought, 'This is so cool! In fact Catholics are easy targets, like Geroge Bush, that can be criticised with immunity. Come out Virginia, don't let me wait You Catholic girls start much too late Ah but sooner or later it comes down to fate I might as well, will be the one Well they showed you a statue and told you to pray They built you a temple and locked you away Ah 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 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 Ah but that never hurt noone So come on Virginia show me a sign Send up a signal I'll throw you a line That stained glass curtain you're hiding behind Never lets in the sun Darlin only the good die young I tell you only the good die young Only the good die young You get a nice white dress And a party on your confirmation You've got a brand new soul Mm 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 And 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 You know that only the good die young I tell you only the good die young Only the good die young You said your mother told you All I could give you was a reputation Ah she never cared for me But did she ever say a prayer for me? I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints. It has some of the clearest, most well-defined lyrics of any popular song out there. He questions commitment and integrity, and a biblical passage sneaks its way in- Walking on water are miracles all you can trust The poor fellow has no first hand evidence, he has to take his vision on faith, but he wonders how he believe in what he can never prove, and even further give his life. So I never understood what the furor was about.

words to only the good die young

Only the good die young. Joel himself is Jewish but doesn't practice the religion. Only the good die young x2 Many of you are over-thinking this. I was baptized a Catholic and I learned intensively about the religion when I was a small child. And while I'm rebelious I understand what my faith means. Still, I have to admit the singer uses everything he's got to try to persuade the girl to leave her cloistered, religious upbringing to experience his physical passion for her. I might as well will be the one.

Only the Good Die Young Lyrics

words to only the good die young

Oo oo oo oo Oooo oo! I don't understand the problem with the song. The Bible tries really darn hard to point out that it's the bad people who die young. The song was for its time, with the lyrics written from the perspective of a young man determined to have sex with a girl. It's just a song it's popular. However, my Catholic wife is a bit resentful and disapproving when I can't help but sing along with it. Oh woe woe woe woe! Oh, oh, oh 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 You know that only the good die young Tell ya baby You know that only the good die young Only the good die young Only the good Only the good die young Wooh, wooh Ooh hoo, ooh hoo Ooh hoo, ooh hoo Only the good die young Only the good die young. When I was a senior in high school, it hit really close to home.
