For some reason they've decided to sing a song on the subject of not going of not going out with underage girls. Their U16 Girls song has all the sound moral arguments that were displayed in Gary Puckett's "Young Girl". I think in both cases you have to wonder what sort of a person dates a child and DOESN'T NOTICE!
I know that when I was about 14, a 15 year old girl seemed like a whole world of maturity, but come on. It's pretty obvious when a child's a child, right?
"So, where would you like to go out tonight? A Tweenies concert? Ok, I'm a bit concerned that you might be underage. What do you mean you've lost your Fimbles doll."
My guess is that both Travis and Gary Puckett were snatching themselves back, at the last minute, from doing something that they always knew was wrong, but had hitherto been kidding themselves was probably going to work out well. But was it the moral implications that stopped them? Or was it the sure-fire knowledge that their younger girlfriend would eventually grow out of them, and that, by the time this happened, a few years would have elapsed and they'd feel too old to be going out looking for a new girlfriend.
