I'm about seventeen I guess
I read what the calendar said
but I'm not about to drop dead
I just happened on the scene
and since I wake up in the morning
and I love the world
like a boy like a boy
chasing his first girl
what do numbers mean?
I'm about seventeen

let's get to the program
wang dang do dang
dang dang do dang
heh
just about seventeen
i say
wang dang do dang
dang dang do dang
heh heh
just about seventeen

and since I still want to laugh
and I still want to go
and since you still can't beat me
for rock and roll
what do numbers mean?
I'm about seventeen

I'd say I'm about seventeen
yeah I know I read what the calendar said
but my heart is not yet dead
in fact I've just shown up here on the scene
and since I walk down your street
with a certain joy
usually found in a girl
kissing her first boy
what do numbers mean?
when you say "I'm about seventeen"

Modern Lovers gonna rock for the folks now
wang dang do dang
dang dang do dang
huh
just about seventeen
i say
wang dang do dang
dang dang do dang
huh huh
just about seventeen

and when I hear "he's getting older"
it still sounds so strange
oh I wake up and I know
that I haven't changed
you know what I mean
I'm about seventeen
