    A somewhat older mans proposition to a younger woman / girl. Taking her innocence (girlhood). Ie Virginity.

    The song isn’t necessarily creepy or inappropriate. It could be a 21 year old Male propositioning a slightly younger female maybe 18 that he loves and cares about.

    Or it could be a much older man being inappropriate and taking advantage of a much younger girl. That is left up to the listeners to decide I guess.

    Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon by Neil Diamond is a very clear lyrics and I kinda agree with the latest comment. The first and second comment, also explains the traditional interpretations for this song.

    You'll be here all week? Seems a secret message to someone. Hope you will be able to see each other here.

    The song is about the impressionability of youth. In this case, the indecisive party is female. The narrator fires back at the all rumors by offering "adulthood" to the young lady in the guise of accepting him. However, his rendition may also be an attempt to manipulate. Fortunately that doesn't change the meaning of the title. At some point we must all make up our own minds in regard to our own lives. I'll be here all week.

    I think about a a man that hasn't been able to see his daughter for some time and that that side of the family are slaging her dad off all the time to her, but the dad's hands are tied..

    I think it means he wants to plow a woman much his junior.

    I believe this song is about a girl who will become a woman soon and will soon need a man to date or get married to. I also believe that the man he is talking about is him.

    I believe this song is about a girl coming to womanhood. It might not be a "very young girl" but more of getting into that stage of marriage, relationships, and needs a man as a partner in life.

    The song sounds like it's a guy who really is in love with her, and maybe he is a "bad boy". All her friends/family do not like him. They do not see past all of his antics, to the depth of him which really does love her. He wants to be that man in her life, it could be about losing her virginity. I think he is also asking her to make the choice, that she will be a woman, and she has to take that call to be with him or to leave him.

    I think it relates to "old" sort of relationships, does not mean she is very young, just that she is coming of that age where you have to begin looking for a guy to get married to, fall in love with.
