I learned the truth at seventeen That love was meant for beauty queens And high school girls with clear skinned smiles Who married young and then retired.

Janis Ian. Produced by Brooks Arthur. Album Between the Lines. I learned the truth at seventeen That love was meant for beauty queens And high school girls with clear-skinned smiles Who married young and then retired. The valentines I never knew The Friday night charades of youth Were spent on one more beautiful At seventeen I learned the truth. And those of us with ravaged faces Lacking in the social graces Desperately remained at home Inventing lovers on the phone

Janis Ian, singer and songwriter. I was living with my mother, spending a lot of time writing. One day I was sitting at the dining room table, reading the New York Times Magazine. There was an article about a woman who’d thought her life would change and be perfect when she had her debutante ball. The first line was, I learned the truth at 18. Since At Eighteen didn’t scan, it became At Seventeen. It took three months to write, because it was scary. I remember the day I first thought At Seventeen might be doing something. We’d graduated from playing to 100 people to 800. We were at a college in the midwest and I walked out of the dressing room - which was the locker room – and there were kids lined up on both sides.

At Seventeen" was released as a single and reached on the Billboard Hot 100 and on the Adult Contemporary chart.

Janis Ian, then 22, wrote "At Seventeen" in 1973 at her mother's house over the course of three months. In her autobiography Society's Child, Ian says that the song was inspired by a newspaper article about a former teenage debutante who learned the hard way that being popular did not solve all her problems. The article included the quote, "I learned the truth at eighteen"; Ian found that the word "seventeen" worked better than "eighteen" when she tried to put this lyric with the bossa nova-style melody she had been composing on guitar. The song's parent album, Between the Lines, also hit and earned a platinum certification for sales of one million copies In films and television programs.

At Seventeen " as written by and Janis Ia. .I learned the truth at seventeen That love was meant for beauty queens And high school girls with clear skinned smiles Who married young and then retired. And those of us with ravaged faces Lacking in the social graces Desperately remained at home Inventing lovers on the phone. Who called to say "Come dance with me" And murmured vague obscenities It isn't. For many people, the age of seventeen is awkward and riddled with angst. There are pressures and worries that seem so trivial looking back when you're older. But at that unpleasant and uncertain age life can be very troublesome. So Janis Ian wraps up that angst so well in what has become one of the best songs ever written. The lyrics are a masterpiece, and lend themselves to people of different races, backgrounds, colour, and even gender. Janis Ian. If You Could Read My Mind.
