When I first met you, baby
Baby, you were just sweet sixteen
First met you, baby
Baby, you were just sweet sixteen
You just left your home then, baby
The sweetest thing I'd ever seen

But you wouldn't do nothing, baby
You wouldn't do anything I ask you to
You wouldn't do nothing for me, baby
You wouldn't do anything I ask you to
You know you ran away from your home, baby
And now you wanna run away from old B too

You know I love you, baby
And I'll do anything you tell me to do
You know, you know I love you, baby
Baby I love you and I'll do anything you tell me to
Nothing in the world, baby
Babe, it ain't nothing
Nothing in the world I wouldn't do it for you

I just got back from Vietnam baby
And you know I'm a long long way from New Orleans
I just got back from Vietnam baby, oh baby
And I'm a long long way from New Orleans
I'm having so much trouble baby
Baby, I wonder, what in the world is gonna happen to me?

Treat me mean, baby
But I'll keep on loving you just the same
Treat me mean, treat me mean baby
I'll keep loving you, keep on loving you just the same
But one of these days, baby
You're gonna give a lot of money
To hear someone call my name

Yes, sweet sixteen baby, sweet sixteen
Yes the sweetest thing baby
Yes the sweetest thing I've ever seen
Ye, you know I'm having so much trouble, people
Baby I wonder, yes I wonder, baby I wonder
Oh, I wonder what in the world's gonna happen to me
