Seventeen
Winger Lyrics


Yey I saw sparks fly, from the corner of my eye
When I turned, it was love at first sight
I said please excuse me, I didn't catch your name
Oh it'd be a shame not to see you again

And just when I thought she was comin' to my door
She whispered sweet and brought me to the floor, she said

I'm only seventeen (seventeen)
But I'll show you love like you've never seen
She's only seventeen (seventeen)
Daddy says she's too young, but she's old enough for me

Come to my place, we can talk it over
Oh everything going down in your head
She said take it easy, I need some time
Time to work it out, to make you mine

And just when I thought she was comin' to my door
She whispered sweet and brought me to the floor, she said

I'm only seventeen (seventeen),
You ain't seen love, ain't seen nothing like me
She's only seventeen, seventeen yeah yea

Yes! Such a bad girl, loves to work me overtime
Feels good (ha), dancin' close to the borderline
She's a magic mountain, she's a leather glove
Oh she's my soul, it must be love

She's only seventeen (seventeen)
I used to give her love, like I've never seen
She's only seventeen (seventeen)
Daddy says she's too young, but she's old enough for me (seventeen)
She's everything I need (seventeen)
Daddy says she's too young
But she's old enough, old enough for me

I used to love this song when I was young then I heard my daughter play it in her fast car with her loud stereo and she was 17 and then I thought "OH HELL NO!!!!!!!" lol I do really love the song still though :)

The solo is an absolute masterpiece.

Saw these guys in concert back in 88, and Kip sounded exactly like he does on record...... it was live, but it was obvious the guy could sing. No tricks or gimmicks like today......

How can any REAL musician NOT like this?

Child of the 80's here.  Had the jean jacket and long hair.  Still have a jean jacket  \m/

Managed to sneak backstage at a Winger concert my junior year in high school. I was 17 and when I met that "hot, too much of a man Kip". I said some pretty interesting things to him. He was a gentleman and thanked me for my complements. Oh, the things we do and say when we are young!

People make fun of these bands now, but let's think about this.  They all played their own real instruments, there weren't many bass and drum machines and the singers could actually sing not needing heavy auto tuning.  So they had bad hair and dressed terrible, who didn't in the 80's? Great song and hot video!!!

Nobody sounded like this band, the style, look and overall package was really different when they broke. Every member of this band had a resume a mile long before they formed up. Top notch musicians who could write catchy hooks at the same time. That is a rarity in this type of music.
