"Edge Of Seventeen" as written by and Stevie Nicks....
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Whoo, whoo, whoo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh, said ooh

And the days go by
Like a strand in the wind
In the web that is my own
I begin again
Said to my friend, baby
Nothin' else mattered

He was no more than a baby then
Well he seemed broken hearted
Something within him
But the moment that I first laid
Eyes on him all alone
On the edge of seventeen

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh, said ooh
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh, said ooh

I went today maybe I will go again tomorrow
And the music there it was hauntingly familiar
And I see you doing
What I try to do for me
With the words from a poet
And the voice from a choir
And a melody nothing else mattered

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Oo baby, oo, said ooo
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh, said ooh

The clouds never expect it
When it rains
But the sea changes colours
But the sea
Does not change
And so with the slow graceful flow of age
I went forth with an age old desire to please
On the edge of seventeen

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh, said ooh
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh, said ooh

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh, said ooh
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, ooh, said ooh

Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing
Ooh baby, said ooh
Ooh baby, said ooh
Ooh baby, said ooh
Ooh baby, said ooh
Ooh baby, said ooh
Ooh baby, said ooh
Ooh baby, said ooh
