She was only seventeen and he was one year more
She loved him with all her heart, and he the girl adored
But all their friends believed they were too young to know the score
Cause she was only seventeen and he was one year more

Are they old enough to know if love will last a life?
Isn't he too young to be a husband, her a wife?
Within the past I bet it's happened more than once before
When someone else was seventeen and another one year more

Do we have the right to question love that seems so strong?
As long as God has no objection, there can be no wrong

Let us be the first to wish them all the very best
Let us hope their love is strong enough to meet the test
'Cause like I say, I bet it's happened more than once before
When someone else was seventeen and another one year more
