Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers, Why Do Fools Fall in Love?
(Frankie Lymon & Morris Levy)
[Herman Santiago & Jimmy Merchant]
Why does my heart
Skip a crazy beat
For I know
It will bring defeat
I had one I thought was pretty good, but turns out YouTube has blocked it for Copyright reasons, so I'll try again shortly.
Sure; there's lots we can use. It certainly doesn't have to be 50s, though that was the Golden Age for songs about teen love. Here's a 21st-century look back on a teenage romance:
Katy Perry, The One That Got Away
(Katy Perry / Lukasz Gottwald / Max Martin)
Summer after high school, when we first met,
We'd make out in your Mustang to Radiohead
And on my eighteenth birthday we got matching tattoos;
Used to steal your parents' liquor and climb to the roof,
Talk about our future like we had a clue;
Never planned that one day I'd be losing you
