Verse 1:
               [A7  ]                  [D7  ]
Sweet little sixteen, she's just got to have,
              [A7     ]          [D7    ]
About a half a million framed autographs,
                        [G7      ]                    [D7 ]
Her wallet's filled with pictures, she gets 'em one by one,
            [A7   ]                      [D7
Becomes so excited, won't you look at her run, boy?    0:46

Sweet little sixteen, she got the grown-up blues,
                 [A7      ]                           [D7   ]
Tight dresses and lipstick, she's sportin' high-heeled shoes,
                [G7    ]                           [D7   ]
Oh, but tomorrow mornin', she'll have to change her train,
               [A7  ]                   [D7
Become sweet sixteen, and back in class again.    1:54
