Sweet Little Sixteen Chords
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

In January 1958, Chuck Berry wrote and released this song called Sweet Little Sixteen. The song peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 but #1 on the R&B best sellers chart. It has the same melody as a song he recorded in 1955 called The Little Girl From Central. The song "Surfin USA" by The Beach Boys from 1963 used this melody for that song. The Beatles covered the song in 1963 and John Lennon covered it in 1975.

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
