From the The Rolling Stones – All the Songs book:
The narrator has met a girl in a movie theater who is so young that he
appeals to the Lord for help not give in to temptation. At first glance,
however, she is not particularly seductive: she has zits on her face, and is
incapable of walking straight. Everything changes rapidly, however, when
the narrator buys her a pair of boots. He has to calm his excitement and
prepare to beat a quick retreat. “So Young” dates back to the Some Girls
sessions at the Pathé Marconi Studios in Boulogne-Billancourt, in the
suburbs of Paris, at the beginning of 1978. There are a number of versions.
The one used for the single “Love Is Strong” and later included in the box
set The Singles 1971—2006 (2011), is the 1978 recording produced by
Chris Kimsey and enhanced in 1994 with some piano from Chuck Leavell.
There is also the 2011 version on the Some Girls bonus disc, which has
vocal additions from Mick Jagger. Finally, there is a piano version that was
made available as a download in the United Kingdom and the United States
