She was only sixteen, only sixteen
But 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

So, 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
Oh with eyes that would glow
But she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

So, 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

Now, she was only sixteen, only sixteen
Oh but I loved that girl so
But she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know
Yes she was too young to fall in love
And I, I was too young, I was much too young to know
