They're really rockin in boston,
In pittsburgh, p.a.
Deep in the heart of texas,
On down to frisco bay.
All over st. louis
And down in new orleans,
All the cats wanna dance with
Sweet, little sixteen.

Sweet, sweet, sweet, little sixteen,
Shes got the grown up blues.
Tight dresses and lipstick,
Shes sportin high heel boots-ah.
Oh, but tomorrow morning,
You gotta have to change her trend,
Become sweet sixteen-ah,
And back in class again.

Oh, mummy, mummy,
Please, please may I go?
You know it's such a sight to see them
Some other steal the show.
Oh, daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy,
You know I beg of you,
Scream it to mama,
Its all right with you.

Because they're rockin in new york,
In philadelphia, p.a.
Deep in the heart of texas,
Down at the rainbow, l.a.
All over st. louis
And down in new orleans,
All them mothers wanted to
Be sweet, little sixteen.

Sweet, sweet, sweet, sixteen,
Shes so delicate,
Shes just gotta have it,
About half, half a mountain,
That's framed back.
Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh,
Do it! do it!
