Song written by David Champagne
Sung by Dietrich Strause

lyrics

Well I got a girl pregnant when I was just fifteen
I see you shaking your head I know it's hard to believe
My friend's older sister vodka drinking afternoon
Sent Ricky out for cigarette's and showed me how to boogaloo

It was hard at first but soon we were having a ball
I was a real fast learner it really didn't take too long at all
Ricky came running with his BB rife from the hall
They both freaked out and dragged me of the divan I was
Glad I kept my shoes on as up the hill to home I ran

Thinking “Oh Lord! What have I done?
Oh Lord! What am I gonna do.”

Cindy miscarried and attempted suicide
Maybe she didn't have the baby and anyway it wasn't even mine
Everything I know is secondhand 'cause by that time
I was boots on the ground at a military school
With the crewcut I bought with the wages of cool

Every morning in the chapel I'll be preaching gospel to the choir
Every marble freezing morning I'll be preaching gospel to the choir

And we'd sing “Oh Lord! What have I done?
Oh Lord! What am I gonna do?”
