Sixteen Going On Seventeen - Lyrics

You are sixteen
Going on seventeen
Baby, it's time tothink

Better beware
Be canny and careful
Baby, you're on the brink

You are sixteen
Going on seventeen
Fellows will fall in line
Eager young lads, and rogues, and cats
Will offer you food and wine

I am sixteen going on seventeen
I know that I'm naive
Fellows I meet may
Tell me I'm sweet and
Willingly I believe

I am sixteen going on seventeen
Innocent as a rose
Bachelor dandies, drinkers of brandies
What do I know of those?

You wait, little girl
On an empty stage
For fate to turn the light on

Your life, little girl
Is an empty page
That men will want to write on
(To write on)

I am sixteen, going on seventeen
I know that I'm naive
Fellows I meet may
Tell me I'm sweet and
Willingly I believe

I am sixteen going on seventeen
Innocent as a rose
Bachelor dandies, drinkers of brandies
What do I know of those?

Totally unprepared are you
To face a world of men
Timid and shy and scared are you
Of things beyond your kin

You need someone older and wiser
Telling you what to do
I am sixteen, going on seventeen
I'll take care of you
