Sweet Little Sixteen Lyrics

They're really rocking in Boston - Pittsburgh, P.A.
Deep in the heart of Texas - Way down in Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis - And down in New Orleans
Everybody’s wants to dance with - Sweet Little Sixteen

Sweet Little Sixteen - She's just got to have
About a half a million -A-framed autographs
Her wallet's filled with pictures - She gets them, one by one
Becomes so excited - Oh, won't you look at her run, boy?

Oh, Mommy, Mommy - please, may I go?
It's such a sight to see - Somebody do a show
Oh Daddy Daddy I beg of you-
Whisper to Mommy it's all right with you

They're really rocking on Bandstand - Pittsburgh, P.A.
Deep in the heart of Texas - Way down in Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis - And down in New Orleans
Everybody’s wants to dance with - Sweet Little Sixteen

Sweet Little Sixteen - She's got the grown-up blues
Miniskirts and hot pants - Sometimes she dont wear no shoes
Oh, but tomorrow morning - She'll have to change her trend
And be sweet sixteen - And go back to class, again

They're really rocking on Bandstand - Pittsburgh, P.A.
Deep in the heart of Texas - Way down in Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis - And down in New Orleans
Everybody’s wants to dance with - Sweet Little Sixteen
