After all the changes that you put me through
You used all my money and my cigarettes
And I haven't seen hide nor hair of you yet
I wanna know, won't you tell me, am I in love to stay?

Take me to the river and wash me down
Won't you cleanse my soul, put my feet on the ground

I don't know why she treated me so bad
Look at all those things that we could have had
Love is a notion that I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I will never regret
I wanna know, won't you tell me, am I in love to stay?

Hold me, love me, please me, tease me
Till I can't, till I can't take no more, take me to the river

I don't know why I love you like I do
After all the things that you put me through
The sixteen candles burning on my wall
Turning me into the biggest fool of them all
I wanna know, can't you tell me, am I in love to stay?

I wanna know, take me to the river
I wanna know, I want you to dip me in the water
I wanna know, won't you wash me in the water
Wash me in the water, wash me in the water
Won't you wash me in the water
