        Oh-oh, wah-woo, woo
        Oh-oh, wah-woo, woo

        Each time we have a quarrel
        it almost breaks my heart
        'Cause I'm so afraid
        we will have to part

        Each night I ask
        the stars up above
        Why must I be a teenager in love

        One day I feel so happy
        next day I feel so sad
        I guess I'll learn to take
        the good with the bad

        Each night I ask
        the stars up above
        Why must I be a teenager in love

        I cried a tear
        for nobody but you
        I'll be a lonely one
        if you should say we're through

        Well if you want to make me cry
        it won't be so hard to do
        And if you should say goodbye
        I'll go on loving you

        Each night I ask
        the stars up above
        Why must I be a teenager in love

        I cried a tear
        for nobody but you
        I'll be a lonely one
        if you should say we're through

        Well if you want to make me cry
        that won't be so hard to do
        And if you should say goodbye
        I'll go on loving you

        Each night I ask
        the stars up above
        Why must I be a teenager in love

        Why must I be a teenager in love
        Why must I be a teenager in love
        Why must I be a teenager in love
        In love, oh, oh-oh, oh
        In love
