(F)She was only sixteen, (Bb)only six(C)teen
(Bb)But I(C) loved her (F)so
She was too young to (Bb)fall in (C)love
And (Bb)I was (C)too young to (F)know

We'd laugh and we'd sing, and (Bb)do funny (C)things
(Bb)And it (C)made our hearts (F)glow
She was too young to (Bb)fall in (C)love
And (Bb)I was (C)too young to (F)know

So (Bb)why did I (C)give my (F)heart so fast?
It (Bb)never will (C)happen a(F)gain
But (Bb)I was a (C)mere (F)child of six(Dm)teen
(G)I've aged a year since (C)then

She was (F)only sixteen, (Bb)only six(C)teen
(Bb)Oh, with (C)eyes that would (F)glow

And (Bb)I was (C)too young to (F)know

Instrumental as the verse

So (Bb)why did I (C)give my (F)heart so fast?
It (Bb)never will (C)happen a(F)gain
But (Bb)I was a (C)mere (F)child of six(Dm)teen
(G)I've aged a year since (C)then

Now she was (F)only sixteen, (Bb)only six(C)teen
(Bb)Oh, but I (C)loved that girl (F)so
She was too young to (Bb)fall in (C)love
