SO YOUNG AND IN LOVE

Live 22 Apr 2009 version


[Spoken intro:] Thank you. The mighty Max on the drums. Oh yeah. We got new things happening all the time on this tour so far. I'm gonna bring out my friend Tim Brennan from the Dropkick Murphys. But he's here on a special mission. Remember that house of love I told you we were gonna build? Tim is here with his girlfriend Diana, so I'm gonna turn the microphone over to him for a minute.

[Tim Brennan:] Thank you Bruce. Diana I love you with all my heart. Will you marry me?

[Diana:] Yes.

[Bruce Springsteen:] Well done! They said this was gonna be their wedding song, so we'll play it now. Give that man a guitar!

One, two, three, four

One, two, one two three four

???
Whoa!

Now there's flying angels on your fire escape
They lie to your mama for you, try to keep you safe
You're with them fire alley virgins on midnight vamp
And you lost your heart on Main Street to a beautiful tramp
You lost your mind
She's sent from above
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)

Well rat traps filled with soul crusaders
They're soppin' 'n' boppin' 'n' moppin' with Little Melvin and the Invaders
Missy's on the dance floor doing her stuff
Leroy's dancing doing the continental strut
So fine, yeah they're sent from above
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)
Whoa

(Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh alright)
(Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh), oh yeah, it's alright

Everybody's reeling when the band hits the ceiling
Don't you know that you wanna go
Yeah the kids start rocking when the boys start knocking
And everybody wanna go

Let's go!
Go!
Whao!
That's right
Here we go

Well the joint's shut down, you don't wanna go home
You're in the shady side of town and you're all alone
Yeah papa's chewing your ear off, you ain't got no cash
Mama's chewing your ear off 'bout hanging out with trash
So fine, oh sent from above
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)
So young and in love (so young and in love)

Here we go!
That's right
That's right boys
That's right, we're gonna build this motherfucker one more time
This is for Tim and Diana
Whoa!
