I don't know why I love you like I do
After all the changes you put me through
Stole my money, my cigarettes
I haven't seen the worst of it yet

I wanna know boy, won't you tell me
Tell me how can I stay here with you

Chorus:
Won't you take me to the river
Wash me down
Take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground

I don't know why you treat me so bad
After all the good times that we've had
You're sixteen candles that burn on my wall
Now who's the biggest fool of us all

I wanna know, won't you tell me
Tell me how can I stay here with you

Chorus

Hold me squeeze me love me
And you can tease me
Till I can't take it no more
Oh yeah yeah yeah

I don't know why I love you like I do
After all the changes you put me through
Love is a notion I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I would never regret

I wanna know, won't you tell me
Tell me how can I stay here with you

Chorus x2
