  • I saw sparks fly, from the corner of my eye
    And 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, but I'll show you love like you've never seen
    She's only 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, you ain't seen love, ain't seen nothing like me
    She's only seventeen, seventeen

    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, still she gives me love, like I've never seen
    She's only seventeen, daddy says she's too young, but she's old enough for me
    She's everything I need, daddy says she's too young
    But she's old enough, old enough for me Writer/s: B. HILL, K. WINGER, R. BEACH

  • Jeff from Neenah, WiWhat was the mystery model's real name in the Seventeen video?
  • Steven from Texas/oklahomaWhile 17 is illegal in most states, Texas says a consensual woman may have intercourse [discretion necessary] but she is still treated as a minor at 17. Though a significantly older man/woman would be cause for concern.
