Sixteen going on seventeen
But she thinks that she's twenty-one
Doing things she ain't done before
Got her hands on a loaded gun

Talking 'bout
Sweet 17

Got a mouthful of sticky stuff
Blowing bubbles in the parking lot
She's in love with a film star
So she gives it everything she's got

Her daddy tells her she's crazy
And her momma says, "Please slow down"
See her out on the dance floor
She's gonna wind up in the lost and found

I'm talking about
(Fifteen sixteen seventeen)
Sweet 17
(Fifteen sixteen seventeen)
Sweet 17

I wouldn't say she's easy
But she's the kinda girl that won't say no
She's always getting into trouble
Though she's only got a year to go
She's got a record with the local sheriff
And a reputation coast to coast

(Fifteen sixteen seventeen)
Sweet 17
(Fifteen sixteen seventeen)
Sweet 17

Sixteen going on seventeen
And she acts like she's twenty-one
Counting days 'til she's eighteen
She's rated expert
She's having fun

I'm talking 'bout
(Fifteen sixteen seventeen)
Sweet 17
(Fifteen sixteen seventeen
Sweet 17

(Fifteen sixteen seventeen)
You know what I mean
(Fifteen sixteen seventeen)
Sweet 17
