Big Joe Turner – Sweet Sixteen lyrics

(BB King speaking:)
How about it? How about it? It takes a lot of people to make it possible,
So give 'em a big hand. Everybody is working to try to make it nicer.
Anyway! As I leave you... a little bit of Sweet Sixteen for the guys -
Just a taste - give me C for Sweet Sixteen...
When I first met you baby, baby you were just sweet sixteen
First met you baby, baby you was just sweet sixteen
Just left your home then baby, oh the sweetest thing I'd ever seen
But you wouldn't do nothing for me baby, you wouldn't do anything I asked you to
You wouldn't do nothing for me baby, oh you wouldn't do anything I asked you to
You know you ran away from your home baby, and now you wanna run away from old me too
My brother's in Korea baby, my sister's down in New Orleans
Brother's in Korea baby, oh sister sister down in New Orleans
You know I'm having so much troubles people, baby I wonder what in the world is gonna happen to me
Oh yes sweet sixteen baby... sweet sixteen... oh yes
The sweetest thing baby, oh yes
The sweetest thing I ever seen
You know I'm having so much trouble people, baby I wonder what in the world's gonna happen to me
Sweet sixteen... sweet sixteen oh yes
You know I'm having so much trouble people
Baby I wonder
Yes I wonder
Baby I wonder
I wonder what in the world's gonna happen to me
