Chorus:
                          A7                    D7
They're really rockin' in Boston, Philadephia, P.A.,
                     A7                           D7
Deep in the heart of Texas, and ‘round the Frisco Bay,
             G7                       D7
All over St. Louis, and down in New Orleans,
                   A7                          D7   ]
All the cats wanna dance with, sweet little sixteen.   0:24


Verse 1:
               [A7  ]                  [D7  ]
Sweet little sixteen, she's just got to have,
              [A7     ]          [D7    ]
About a half a million framed autographs,
                        [G7      ]                    [D7 ]     
Her wallet's filled with pictures, she gets ‘em one by one,
            [A7   ]                      [D7
Becomes so excited, won't you look at her run, boy?    0:46


Bridge:
           G7                  D7
“Oh Mommy, Mommy, please may I go?
                     A7                      D7
It's such a sight to see, somebody steal the show.
          G7              D7
Oh Daddy, Daddy, I beg of you,
           A7                       D7
Whisper to Mommy, it's alright with you”.   1:09


Instrumental, same pattern as verse 1
                          A7                     D7
                     A7                           D7
             G7                       D7
                   A7                        D7      ]    1:32

Verse 2:
               [A7  ]                     [D7   ]
Sweet little sixteen, she got the grown-up blues,
                 [A7      ]                           [D7   ]
Tight dresses and lipstick, she's sportin' high-heeled shoes,
                [G7    ]                           [D7   ]     
Oh, but tomorrow mornin', she'll have to change her train,
               [A7  ]                   [D7   
Become sweet sixteen, and back in class again.    1:54


Chorus
                                  A7                     D7
Yes, ‘cause they'll be rockin' in Boston, Philadephia, P.A.,
                     A7                           D7
Deep in the heart of Texas, and ‘round the Frisco Bay,
             G7                       D7
All over St. Louis, and down in New Orleans,
                   A7                          D7      D ]
All the cats wanna dance with, sweet little sixteen.         2:20
