The Beatles

The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. They became the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed act in the history of popular music. Their best-known lineup consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, they later utilised several genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. In the early 1960s, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania", but as their songwriting grew in sophistication, they came to be perceived by many fans and cultural observers as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the era's sociocultural revolutions. more »

They're really rocking in Boston, 
In Philadelphia PA, 
Deep in the heart of Texas, 
On down the Frisco Bay. 
All over Saint Louis 
And down in New Orleans. 
All the cats want to dance with 
 Sweet little sixteen. 

 Sweet little sixteen, 
She's just got to have 
 About half a million 
 Framed autopraphs. 
Her wall is filled with pictures, 
She gets them one by one. 
 Becomes so excited, 
Oh watch her at the run boy. 

Oh mommy mommy, 
 Please may I go. 
You know it's such a sight to see 
 Somebody steal the show. 
Oh daddy daddy, 
I beg of you. 
 Please say it to mommy 
It's alright with you. 

 Sweet little sixteen 
She's got the grown up blues. 
 Tight dresses and lipstick, 
She's sporting in high heeled boots. 
Oh but tomorrow morning 
She'll have to change her trend 
 Become sweet sixteen 
And back in class again. 

They're really rocking in Boston, 
In Philadelphia PA, 
Deep in the heart of Texas 
And down the Frisco Bay. 
All over Saint Louis, 
On down in New Orleans. 
All the cats want to dance with 
 Sweet little sixteen
