"SEVENTEEN" as written by Kip Winger, Reb Beach and Beau Hill....
Yey I saw sparks fly, from the corner of my eye
When I turned, it was love at first sight
I said please excuse me, I didn't catch your name
Oh it'd be a shame not to see you again

And just when I thought she was comin' to my door
She whispered sweet and brought me to the floor, she said

I'm only seventeen (seventeen), but I'll show you love like you've never seen
She's only seventeen (seventeen), daddy says she's too young, but she's old enough for me

Come to my place, we can talk it over, oh everything going down in your head
She said take it easy, I need some time, time to work it out, to make you mine

And just when I thought she was comin' to my door
She whispered sweet and brought me to the floor, she said

I'm only seventeen (seventeen), you ain't seen love, ain't seen nothing like me
She's only seventeen, seventeen yeah yea

Yes! Such a bad girl, loves to work me overtime
Feels good (ha), dancin' close to the borderline
She's a magic mountain, she's a leather glove
Oh she's my soul, it must be love

She's only seventeen (seventeen), I used to give her love, like I've never seen
She's only seventeen (seventeen), daddy says she's too young, but she's old enough for me (seventeen)
She's everything I need (seventeen), daddy says she's too young
But she's old enough, old enough for me

    General CommentI love this song. Reminds me of when my sister was a hair band teenager and my dad would see her with older guys. We still tease him with that song all the time.

    General CommentOh yes. The dirtiest filthiest song ever written. I laugh every time I hear it...so balls out from the first notes and message is clear. This older guy has got himself a 17-year old hottie and is going to work her over. Hot Hot HOT.

    General CommentThis one should be played on a triple dip with the Stones' 'Stray Cat Blues' and Motorhead's 'Jailbait'. Gotta love that young stuff! Great song, Kip!

    General CommentThe song structure is Grade A, but that was common with Winger. Perfect rift entering the song then the rest of the song kicks ass.
