The lyrics ... all three stanzas... put me in high school in the blink of an eye...
I learned about love in high school.
I learned about pain... both kinds.
And I found out who I really was or at least... who I was going to be.
This song... simple and short... reminds me of those discoveries.
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 about "Paint It, Black"
Rock 'n 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.
