Chuck Berry – Sweet Sixteen lyrics

Sweet Sixteen,
Sweet Sixteen,
Sweet Sixteen,
Ah, you抮e the sweetest little babe
That I抳e ever seen

But you would not
You would not do
Everything that I ask you to
Guess you ran away from your home, darling
Now, you won抰 run away from me too

Well, my brother is sent to Korea
And my sister settled down in New-Orleans
Guess my mother is up in heaven
And now I wonder what
Would happen to me

Sweet Sixteen
Sweet Sixteen
Sweet Sixteen
Sweet Sixteen
You抮e the sweetest little baby
That I ever seen
