I met her in a movie house, she was playing the arcades
And posing with a hangdog look, 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

Well 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, it was just jammed with teenage trash
She always got a pop or two hidden in her stash

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

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

Yeah

Yeah I took her down to Barney's, bought her a brand new set of boots
She tottered in my arms, she was 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

She's so young
Yeah, she's so young

Yeah she’s so young, she’s so young
She’s so young, she’s so young
She ain't never gonna steal my heart away, I might not get it back
She's so young

Yeah, so young, she's so young
So young, so much fun
I ain't never gonna throw my heart away, I might not get it back today
She's so young

Hey

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

So young, so young
So young, so dumb
Hey, hey, come on
So young

A heavy blues, about meeting a very young girl and then getting wet feet. There's a line in it that says, I took her to Barney's to buy her boots.
