Music Monday: Young Girl by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap

I've been enjoying the recent Music Monday theme posts by other bloggers like Mariuca and Lady Java, and decided this was the week to run a theme on three of my blogs: Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. While most Music Mondays have found me stuck in the '80s, Gary Puckett dates back even further to the 1960s when my older sisters were growing up. When I was little, maybe even London and Maddie's age, I found the old 45 of "Young Girl" in my sisters' record collection and made it my own. It wasn't long before more than one of the disc jockeys on the local radio stations were dedicating that song to me. If you listen to the lyrics you'll understand that Rex was by no means the first older man in my life.





Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl,
You're much too young, girl
With all the charms of a woman
You've kept the secret of your youth
You led me to believe
You're old enough
To give me love
And now it hurts to know the truth, Oh,
Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl,
You're much too young, girl
Beneath your perfume and make-up
You're just a baby in disguise
And though you know
That it's wrong to be
Alone with me
That come on look is in your eyes, Oh,
Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl,
You're much too young, girl
So hurry home to your mama
I'm sure she wonders where you are
Get out of here
Before I have the time
To change my mind
'Cause I'm afraid we'll go too far, Oh,
Young girl
