The Ink Spots

The Ink Spots were a vocal group in the 1930s and 1940s that helped define the musical genre that led to rhythm and blues and rock and roll, and the subgenre doo-wop. They and the Mills Brothers, another black vocal group of the same period, gained much acceptance in both the white community and black community. They were inducted into the vocal group hall of fame in 1999. more »

You were sweet sixteen, you were sweet sixteen

I love you as I never loved before! 
Since first I met you on the village green. 
Come to me, or my dream of love is o'er! 
I love you as I loved you, 
When you were sweet 
When you were sweet sixteen. 

When first I saw the lovelight in your eye, 
And dreamt the world held naught but joy for me. 
And even though we drifted far apart, 
I never dreamt of what I dream of thee 

I love you as I never loved before! 
Since first I met you on the village green. 
Come to me, or my dream of love is o'er! 
I love you as I loved you, 
When you were sweet 
When you were sweet sixteen.
