Sixteen Going on Seventeen
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 You are sixteen going on seventeen Baby, itÂ´s time to think Better beware, be canny and careful Baby, youÂ´re on the brink You are sixteen going on seventeen Fellows will fall in line Eager young lads and rogues and cads Will offer you food and wine Totally unprepared are you To face a world of men Timid and shy and scared are you Of things beyond your ken You need someone older and wiser Telling you what to do I am seventeen going on eighteen IÂ´ll take care of you I am sixteen going on seventeen I know that IÂ´m naive Fellows I meet may tell me IÂ´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 am I To face a world of men Timid and shy and scared am I Of things beyond my ken I need someone older and wiser Telling me what to do You are seventeen going on eighteen IÂ´ll depend on you
