Only sixteen, only sixteen
Only sixteen, only sixteen

She was only sixten, only sixteen
I loved her so
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

We'd laugh and we'd sing, and do little things
That made my heart glow
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

Why did I give my heart so fast?
It never will happen again
'Cause I was a mere lad of sixteen
I've aged a year since then

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
With eyes that would glow
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

Why did I give my heart so fast?
It never will happen again
Coz I was a mere lad of sixteen
I've aged a year since then

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
With eyes that would glow
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

That she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

That she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

That she was too young
