I'll do anything
For my sweet sixteen,
And I'll do anything
For little run away child

Gave my heart an engagement ring,
She took ev'rything,
Ev'rything I gave her,
Oh sweet sixteen

Built a moon
For a rocking chair,
I never guessed it would
Rock her far from here
Oh, oh, oh.

Someone's built a candy castle
For my sweet sixteen
Someone's built a candy brain
And filled it in.

Well I'll do anything
For my sweet sixteen
Oh I'll do anything
For little runaway child

Well, memories may burn you,
Memories grow older as people can
They just get colder
Like sweet sixteen

I see it's clear
Baby, that you are
All through here
Oh, oh, oh, oh.

Someone's built a candy castle
For my sweet sixteen
Someone's built a candy house
To house her in.
Someone's built a candy castle
For my sweet sixteen
Someone's built a candy brain
And filled it in.

And I do anything
For my sweet sixteen
Oh, I do anything
For run away girl.

Yeah, sad and lonely and blue.
Yeah, gettin' over you.
How, how do you think it feels
Yeah to get up in the morning, get over you.
Up in the morning, get over you.
Wipe away the tears, get over you, get over, get over...

My sweet sixteen,
Oh runaway child
Oh sweet sixteen
Little runaway girl.

Gave my heart an engagement ring,
She left everything,
Everything I gave her,
Oh sweet sixteen
Built a moon
For a rocking chair,
I never guessed it would
Rock her far from here
Oh, oh, oh, oh.

Someone's built a candy castle
For my sweet sixteen
Someone's built a candy house
And house her in.
Someone's built a candy castle
For my sweet sixteen
Someone's built a candy house
And house her in.

And I'll do anything
For my sweet sixteen
Oh, I'll do anything
For little runaway child

Do anything
For my sweet sixteen
I'll do anything
For little runaway girl
Little runaway girl
Oh sweet sixteen
Oh sweet sixteen
Oh
