Only the Good Die Young
by Glee Cast



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 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
Oh but that never hurt no one

So come on Virginia show me a sign
Send up a signal and 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 ooh ooh
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
Hmmm 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
Whoa ooh 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
Whoa ooh baby hey
I tell you
Only the good die young
Only the good die young

Well 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?
Whoa whoa oh

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 good
Only the good die young
