The Raiders – Just Seventeen lyrics

Early in the mornin', up in Missoula
Was just about a quarter to four
Layin' on my bed, treatment in my head
There'd come a knock on my door
Before my eyes there was an angel
And I said 'Won't you come inside? '
She said 'I'm just seventeen' but she looked fine
'Just seventeen? Come on inside'

Way up in the mornin', up in Missoula
Wanna search for true on the floor
I was feelin' weak, 'bout to fall asleep
There'd come a knock on my door
Before my eyes there stood that angel
She said 'Why don't you be mine? '
'Cause you're just seventeen' but she looks fine
'Just seventeen, and that's a crime'
