Seventeen - Boyd Bennett


Boyd Bennett

(Boyd Bennett - John Young - Carl Gorman, KING 1470, 1955)

Seventeen, seventeen
Cool and solid seventeen
Young enough to dance and sing
Old enough to get that swing

Past sixteen, just been kissed
Graduated and got that twist
Kind of love I can't resist
At seventeen

Now, sloppy shirt, old blue-jeans
Dirty shoes by all means
Patch of blonde, peroxide hair
Juke-box baby, ain't no square

Seventeen, hot rod queen
Cutest girl you've ever seen
Tell the world I'm really keen
On my hep-cat doll of seventeen
