Dion and The Belmonts A Teenager in Love

Dion and the Belmonts A Teenager in Love

Doo Wop Music

Ah, love can break your heart at any age, but it can be tough for teenagers. The song was written by the team of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman (other songs by them include “Save the Last Dance for Me” “This Magic Moment”). The Belmonts were Carlo Mastrangelo, Fred Milano, and Angelo D’Aleo. There have been many covers, including versions by Bob Marley and The Wailers, Simon and Garfunkel, The Fleetwoods, Less Than Jake, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. However, it was originally sung and recorded by Dion and the Belmonts and went to #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1959. Dion technically was still a teenager when the song was released and turned 20 shortly thereafter.

Here are the lyrics to “A Teenager in Love” by Dion and The Belmonts:

“Each time we have a quarrel
It almost breaks my heart
‘Cause I’m so afraid
That 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

‘Cause 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 still 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 still 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? (In love)
Why must I be
A teenager in love? (In love)

Why must I be A teenager in love?”
