I met her in a movie house, she was playing the arcades
And posing with her hair down, looking a little bit unmade
She spoke in broken English, I replied in broken French
"Come and share my popcorn, it's not a federal offense"

She's so young
God help me, she's so young

Her skin was white and pudgy, she's got spots all on her face
And wearing too much makeup and she wasn't walking straight
She drove her daddy's car, she's got a genuine teenage drag
She always find a popper to be hidden in her stash

She's so young, so young

She ain't never going to steal my heart away, I might not get it back
(Yeah) She's so young

Well I took her down to Barney's, bought her a brand new set of boots
She tied it in my arms and looking terminally cute
I tried to take it easy, put my dick back on a leash
I see big trouble coming, I'm going to beat a quick retreat

Yeah, so young
She's so young

I ain't never gonna give my heart away, I might not get it back
She's so young
