"Thirteen" as written by Alex Chilton and Christopher Bell....
won't you let me walk you home from school?
won't you let me meet you at the pool?
maybe friday i can,
get tickets from the dance,
and i'll take you,
ooo ooo ooo.

won't you tell your dad get off my back?
tell him what we said 'bout "paint It black,"
rock and roll is here to stay,
come inside now it's ok,
qnd i'll shake you,
ooo ooo ooo.

won't you tell me what you're thinking of?
would you be an outlaw for my love?
if it's so then let me know,
if its over then i can go,
and i won't make you,
ooo ooo ooo

    General CommentElliot Smith covered it better I think. But then again I've always been partial to Elliott, so it's natural.
