Gary Puckett & The Union Gap - Young Girl Lyrics

Young girl
Get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

With all the charms of a woman
You've kept the secret of your youth
You led me to believe you're old enough
To give me Love
And now it hurts to know the truth

Whoa, oh, oh, young girl
Get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

Beneath your perfume and make-up
You're just a baby in disguise
And though you know that it's wrong to be
Alone with me
That come on look is in your eyes

Whoa, oh, oh, young girl
Get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

So hurry home to your mama
I'm sure she wonders where you are
Get out of here before I have the time
To change my mind
'Cause I'm afraid we'll go too far

Whoa, oh, oh, young girl
Get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

Young girl
Get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

Young girl
Get out of my mind
My love for you

Gary Puckett & The Union Gap Young Girl Comments
  1. Samuel Arellano

    its a great music

  2. Cagey Cretins

    This is such a great song. How does it only rank 363 out of the 600 best 60's songs on the SiriusXM list? Who the heck was voting? Puckett's voice is phenomenal.



  4. Daniel fisher

    He really needs to clarify this girl is actually of age as I'm kind of worried

  5. John Carrara

    I met a girl at a party 52 years ago and immediately became infatuated. We were both shy, her more than me, but you could say that we hit it off. This girl became the love of my life and we will be married 51 years later this year. But this is the song that has stuck in my mind ever since. I only told her this when we saw Gary Puckett live last year and he sang it then. As I told her, I nearly choked up, but I will always love this song because to me it's about my very own Young Girl. By the way, Gary still sounds great as we are both now in our 70's.

  6. Colin Monk

    such a great range of amazing voices from this era, gary pucket' was one of scores of great vocalists, always nice to try & sing his songs but of course he had all the range, still i give all of them a good go as this was the greatest era to sing along to superb songs.

  7. Berton Orr

    Ah, when music and lyrics were poetic, discreet, magical and classy.

  8. Mommy2juan JesuslovesME

    2020 I've loved Gary Puckett since first I heard his velvet voice draw me closer🥰 In my head, he's actually begging me to rush right into his arms💋

  9. Xoce Pedro

    I still loving you, Luz Maria, tu Pedro del Norte.

  10. Debbie Scott

    The most fantastic singing voice ever! So beautiful. I sang this song everytime it came on the radio. Takes me back to my teenage years, all the hope's & dreams of finding my forever man. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

  11. Chris Axelson

    Big yikes.

  12. susieQ128

    This song was made in the 60s... you had to live back then to understand that he was singing about a teenage girl and he is being cautious.

  13. Byron Fortier

    Well, I disliked this song at the time. Pretty much still do.

  14. Celtic Jewel

    Gary Puckett's voice still cuts through me like nothing else I have ever heard. Amazing! Thankful to God for Gary Puckett.

  15. Joyce Pruitt

    One of the best voices from the 60s..always a favorite!

  16. Roxanne Heart

    I've always loved this song ...but after the last few years of pedophile stories becoming more prominent in society, I'm not so sure how to take the song. It could simply be two teens a few years apart or it could be decades apart. It's unfortunate that this beautiful song is second guessed but at the same time...they/one could be a pedophile.... IDK there's just a lot of confusion these days as to what's what and yes, artistically it's up for interpretation, but I'm also not trying to support a predator. Unfortunately hearing the song, I just can't help but get inappropriate images in my head.

    Those are my current thoughts. Hopefully one day I will once again see this song for how I felt as a teenage girl, dreaming someone were singing about her this way.

  17. Cliff McAulay

    Fantastic singing! Is this the wrecking crew? What a fine recording. Thank you for uploading.

  18. Noach Deborre

    My first and deepest love, I was 15 and he was 18 , I will never forget you ..

  19. Dana Peake

    The big four: Young Girl, Woman, Woman, This Girl is a Woman Now, and Lady Willpower...Pure gold!

    Bahamut Six

    Don’t forget “Over You.” That makes it the big five now

    Dana Peake

    @Bahamut Six not big on that one myself, but ok

  20. Enrique Aguirre

    Hermosa melodía recuerdos entrañables. Grupazo

  21. Denise Dole Braley

    Saw them in person - one of my fav groups

  22. Leono Tigro

    Woaw hermosa canción

  23. Jorge Barcenas

    Joe Nameth really sang his heart out on this one.


    nah, just a racket

  24. Kommissar

    Gary pucket, was too old to/forget it.

  25. Craig Douglas

    Great voice, yes he really can sing and it is a great pop song. I would not be game to sing the Lolita story line now a days. My how things have changed.

  26. Oswaldo Castillo

    Gary, our good LORD blessed you with such a wonderfull and powerful voice. Thank HIM all the time.......

  27. mildred gomez

    Decency, not like the dirty old men!! Better sound.

  28. Gino Vitale

    Pedo Puckett & the age gap

  29. しゅがーはぁと☆

    So many pedo songs back in the day.

  30. David Spegel

    Norfolk Virginia 1968, not bad memories...

  31. David Bell

    Brilliant song to the PC brigade will want to ban it because it mentions young girl

  32. Linda Readman

    Love this song

  33. MoonSpinners

    When i was 15 i flirted outrageously with a man (or so i thought) who was a friend of my parents. He did nothing, I don't think he even knew i existed. Then i heard this song on the radio, it cut right through me, i identified with it so much. The funniest thing about all this, is, when i look back, my "flirting" was flicking my hair over my shoulder, and staring at him!!! I blush now at my naïveté. I wonder if he knew i had a crush on him? Thank god he was a decent person. I still love this song.

    Bob Saturday

    he just thought you were a little kid trying to act grown up


    Bob Saturday .... Poor bloke, i feel sorry for him! A cringeworthy time in my life i can laugh about now 😬

  34. honestlygarrison

    Found this in the old tracks my mum left me, it’s amazing!

  35. Miller Heileife

    1960s 'She kept the secret of her youth'
    2020s 'Bro come get me....ill explain later, DUDE!!!! Get over here now!!
    She was [email protected]#$ing 15 dude!!

  36. Selene Quezada

    I don't see nothing wrong in this song.
    Is a older man in love or whatever it is for a young girl,not a little girl, but he knows all the problem it can be,that's why he tells her to go,couse he doesn't want to hurt her in any way,so,I think he is showing respect to her. I like that song a lot.

  37. richard hussey

    Every word of this song says she is underage. It is about a man who was dating a girl, who he thought was a woman. Now he knows she is not a woman, and so he is breaking up with her. It is unlikely he has had sex with her yet, hence the line I am afraid well go to far. He knows the truth now, so is putting an end too it. That's it!

  38. Matt Thomasson

    Dam shame the has to lip sync and fake playing

  39. Stef Nash

    This is my husband and my song. We were married I 1971. Our 50th Wedding Anniversary is in March 2021. We are still together in our old age. Beautiful song. I was17 and he was 27 when we married. Xx

    Brad Stevens

    Congradulations to the both of you.

    John Zion

    Good thing you didn't take the song's advise

  40. Velma Youngs

    I just love theseguys

  41. Mark Fleury

    Who the fuck decided to cut the amazing combo video Lady Willpower and Young Girl? And then to turn off comments? How fucking dare you Youtube you fucking waste of fucking human space. How fucking dare you decide what we listen to? Fuck you bitches.You pussies even changed the words.

  42. Tommy Lynch

    Prince Andrew,Duke of York song.

  43. carolyn Moen

    memories...Senior Prom 1970...saw them at the Copacabana in NY City. good times.

  44. iris wood

    R.Kelly should've listened to this song it's right up his alley

  45. Francky Libbrecht

    Could the bass player be a vulcan in disguise??

  46. Joe Kaye

    Write a song like this today you'd go to prison.

    Joe Kaye

    Oh, the irony - my 13 yr old neighbor was 4 months pregnant when this song came out. Can you imagine what she thought? BTW, it was a pot party and her 14 yr old sister got knocked up too - same time. Must've been quite a party.

  47. jack mayhoffer

    It’s a good thing he doesn’t have an “ H” between the P and the U. That would complicate things.

  48. John mcEvily

    Reflecting more than ever at 70

  49. Hello There

    Elvis Presley wanted to record this as well but the Colonel wouldn't get him the rights.
    Would've been a big hit!

  50. Jack Lavender

    Creepiest song on the internet?

    john fellows

    Fuck off you idiot !!

  51. daleTron casablancas

    Its called pedophilia if we are being completely honest.
    Can we say statutory rape?

  52. Bonnie Garrison

    Finally, a song where the guy is telling the girl she's too young for him. To bad it came out in the late 60s. The lead singer is really cute.

    Tommy Orr Jr

    why is too bad? Like you think you would have a chance with a celeb or something?

    Joe Kaye

    My brother had the hots for Gary Puckett, too. Personally, I fancy the guy with the goatee.

    Bonnie Garrison

    @Tommy Orr Jr I would have been way to young for him. I was only 8 or 9 when the song came out.

    Peter Levett

    This happened to me with a girl who was only just 16 years old nice girl , but i was nearly 21 yrs old and had many other things going to have a relationship. Wonder where she is now that was back in the early 70's. This record reminds me of those days

  53. UnkleRonnie

    Gary Puckett: “You’re much too young girl”

    R. Kelly: “Hold my beer”

    Jesus Ramirez

    More like, let me finish this beer to fill my bladder

    old fart

    Well, that one made me spit my beer! Good one!

    Alltrans Geo

    Brilliant, top marks for that.

  54. Catnap Gee

    1960s mindset comments: "Beautiful endearing song". 
    Todays mindset comments: "Well as long as it's legal, I'm okay with it".  

    Geez, what a way to devolve.

    sdljvbnskvds dvkjva

    hahahaha .. nice.

  55. KDP

    Here and still loving it 2020

  56. Aileen Lightbody

    Happy memories of an era when pop music was easy to listen to and when singers could actually sing!

  57. Mortuary Artist

    I love this song. Yeah it’s strange, and I love it.

  58. Dennis Sanderson

    I heard this today on the radio, haven't heard it in decades, but I remember it well (born in 61). I didn't know who the singer was (was guessing Tom Jones). This guy could really sing - and what a great looking bunch of guys, too!

    This video is obviously poorly dubbed, he's not a bad lip-syncher. Ed Sullivan never allowed live performances back when, he wanted music to sound exactly like the radio release - most shows back then had bands lip synch. I always wondered how that sounded to the live audience - the band obviously still has to play their instrument, you can't "guitar- synch" or "drum- synch"! I'd think out would sound horrible! Also, where is the trumpet player?

  59. SouthWestCoast Conundrum

    I'm certainly privileged to have grown up with music such as this via my parents in the 1990s, it makes me nostalgic for an era I was never part of.

  60. Kimberly Westley

    as long as it's legal, to me age is just a number. 17 years between my SO and me.

  61. red rowan2000

    listening in jan. 2020--Gary Puckett had a great voice. It was a good time!

  62. Ian Mclean

    Hows your Pauline?
    Shes alright shes dead, hows your Pauline?

  63. Kamalia Sharif

  65. al erguiza

    celebrated new year 2020 with this song

    David Walpole


  66. Mary Schiller

    lots of good people come from Minnesota

  67. Joey Snyder

    My most favorite song from Gary Puckett & The Union Gap and I love listening to 60s music and I first heard it hen I was 10 in 1988.  We need more of this music today.  My younger brother was into dirty music and I chose this kind when I was in 8th grade in 1993 and I got more into this music and it put a huge smile on my face.

  68. I Am Nostalgic!

    DAMN DAD! You had the best music growing up. Your teen years were far better than mine. And this guy's voice!

  69. Marie Smith

    Takes me back to being a WAC in the Army. Vietnam, hearing the whirling of choppers lifting wounded soldiers to medical. Young men who had a girl back home and heard this song played. One of my favorite bands I fondly remember.

    Irma Lara

    Que hermosa cancion siempre seguire escuchando peru 2020

  70. Always Wondering

    God, this happened to me.
    I was so freaked. But so in Love. What can I do.
    I was 26, she was 17.
    Maybe if it were the other way round - I wouldn't have met Bubba. Just kidding.
    But memories can really mess you up man, really.

  71. Florence Langley

    how could you not love this song would be so woke now the joy of the 60s

  72. arve lie andreassen

    A Radio Luxemburg classic

  73. spider jones

  77. Michael Feagan

    They look a bit weird for today’s fashion but boy oh boy this guy could sing!

  78. roy borrill

    Every pedo's favourite song.

    Dennis Sanderson

    I don't think pedophiles are telling young kids to go away, though... want some candy, young girl? "Young girl, get into my van, my wanting you is going to plan, do not run, girl, you're not too young, girl"

  79. Kevin Laye

    Amazing voice and song...

  80. REBEL.Ins'

    This tune’s pretty creepy....

  81. Dannibee Hill

    All leads back to him yes iv worked ur little game out haha but my number 1 James worked u out too xx

  82. Rose Kitty, Gray Kitty, and Jack Kitty

    This song reminds me of the socially forbidden love I always had for Charlie. While I was 5 nor 6 on the outside, on the inside, I was ageless and a lot older than back then, in the 1960s, then I am now, but have almost caught up again. --Benjamin Button theme, and the strange case of.

  83. Rose Kitty, Gray Kitty, and Jack Kitty

    You'll never guess who the voice is behind this beautiful song. I always loved this one, none other than Jordan Maxwell, so very beautiful! Refer to Roy Orbison.

    Steve Espinola

    who is Jordan Maxwell?

    Rose Kitty, Gray Kitty, and Jack Kitty

    @Steve Espinola 'Herman', has had about enough of you!

    Steve Espinola

    sigh. i give up. I get it, you're being surreal.

    to answer your earlier question, the cat in my profile photo is my dear departed cat Mozart. hold on....

    Steve Espinola

    And yes, i talk with my cats. Always.

    Rose Kitty, Gray Kitty, and Jack Kitty

    @Steve Espinola Well then why do you call him Herman? Mozart is a great name for him, and so he shall be named, but just remember, Steve E, kitty cats may be departed, but they are never gone.

  84. TheFunkhouser

    The type of guy we need in today's society!

    olivia hibbert

    TheFunkhouser he’s a pedo


    no he's not

  85. TakersMissy

    This song takes me back to when I was 10 years old, on the cusp of puberty and having mad crushes on adult male celebs. Yeah, I easily imagined myself as the "young girl" in the song! 🥰 But I still enjoy it today and the good memories it brings back. 🙂

  86. James Simmons

    ah another great pedophile anthem! He's singing about how badly he wants to sleep with a 14 year old.

  87. Celina Huezo

    this song is awesome. i had a major crush on this 53 year old man.

  88. Robert Isidore

    This is a very FANTASTIC Song

  89. La Choriste

    Young girl,
    get out of my mind
    My love for you is way out of line
    Better run, girl,
    You're much too young, girl

    With all the charms of a woman
    You've kept the secret of your youth
    You led me to believe, you're old enough
    to give me love
    And now it hurts to know the truth,

    Oh, young girl, get out of my mind
    My love for you is way out of line
    Better run, girl,
    You're much too young, girl

    Beneath your perfume and make-up

    And though you know that it's wrong to be

    My love for you is way out of line

    So hurry home to your mama
    I'm sure she wonders where you are
    Get out of here before I have the time
    to change my mind
    'Cause I'm afraid we'll go too far,,

    Oh, young girl, get out of my mind
    My love for you is way out of line
    Better run girl,
    You're much too young, girl

    Young girl,
    get out of my mind
    My love for you is way out of line
    Better run, girl,
    You're much too young, girl

    He was the most gorgeous man God ever created. My thirteen year old heart used to thump every time I saw him.

    Eric Fapton

  92. L Djinn

    A song about trying not to paedophile all over some kid's face

  93. Anne Adams

    I love this song

  94. cc cc

    This really shows my situation now 😂😂😂. I am 17 and I met a 15 years old girl at a party. We started talking and dating. I ain’t sure if we are friends or whatever else, but after I invited her to prom and on a date we found a Colombian guru who said, I feel you’ll end up together, I think I am falling in love. And it’s really sad because she is too young and I’ll be 18 in a couple of months.

  95. ronald phillips

    I am 70 my girlfriend is 27.This as got to be our song.



  96. mark lewin

    wonder how long before some leftist snowflake demands this song be removed from youtube. :-(
