fragile child lyrics – john fogerty

i knew a pretty little girl
with no love to give
i wouldn’t do that, i wouldn’t do that
so i followed her home
just to see where she lives
i wouldn’t do that, i wouldn’t do that
i walked right up
and i knocked on her door
i wouldn’t do that, i wouldn’t do that
so i asked her for a date
could i see you some more
i wouldn’t do that, i wouldn’t do that

[chorus:]
cause she’s a fragile child
yeah she’s a fragile child
oh she’s a fragile child
better leave her alone

i took her out on the town
just to have a little fun
i wouldn’t do that, i wouldn’t do that
but it wasn’t very long
i found that she’s the same one
i wouldn’t do that, i wouldn’t do that
i thought i’d push my luck
and i held her hand
i wouldn’t do that, i wouldn’t do that
she told me ever so polite
go and see her old man
i wouldn’t do that, i wouldn’t do that

[chorus x2]
