Only Sixteen

Song Author Sam Cooke Lyrics by: Sam Cooke Performer: Dr. Hook og Sam Cooke Submitted by: Anonymous
She was [D]only [Bm]sixteen [G]only [A7]sixteen
[G]I   [A7]loved her [D]so  
But [D]she was too [Bm]young to [G]fall in love[A]    
and [G]I was too [A7]young [D]to know

We'd [D]laugh and we'd [Bm]sing and [G]do funny [A7]things
[G]And it [A7]made our heart[D]s glow
But [D]she was too [Bm]young to [G]fall in love[A]    
and [G]I was too [A7]young [D]to know

[Em]Why did [A7]I give my [D]heart so [Bm]fast   
[Em]It never [A7]will happen a[D]gain
But [Em]I was a [A7]mere [D]child of [Bm]sixteen
[E]I've aged a [E7]year sin[A]ce   [A7]then   

She was [D]only [Bm]sixteen [G]only [A7]sixteen
[G]With eyes [A7]that would [D]glow
But [D]she was too [Bm]young to [G]fall in love[A]    
and [G]I was too [A7]young [D]to know

She was only sixteen only sixteen
I loved her so
But she was too young to fall in love
and I was too young to know

We'd laugh and we'd sing and do funny things
And it made our hearts glow
But 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
But I was a mere child of sixteen
I've aged a year since then

She was only sixteen only sixteen
With eyes that would glow
But she was too young to fall in love
and I was too young to know
