THIRTEEN (Chilton/Bell)

won't you let me
walk you home from school
won't you let me
meet you at the pool
maybe Friday I can
get tickets for the dance
and I'll take you

won't you tell your dad
get off my back
tell him what we said
'bout 'Paint It Black'
rock and roll is here to stay
come inside where it's okay
and I'll shake you

won't you tell me
what you're thinking of
would you be an outlaw
for my love?
if it's so, well, let me know
if it's no, well, I can go
I won't make you
