Sweet Sixteen Submit Correct Lyrics

You couldn't tell little Jackie nothing
Sixteen, thought she knew it all
She was searching for the love she missed, yeah
And so she ran away

Slow down
You're moving way too fast
Sixteen
There's so much for you ahead
Sweet sixteen
Do you know where you're running to?

She fell in love with a man who was so fine
He made her promises, yeah
She didn't stop to think if he was serious, no, no, no
Until she had his baby
Sweet sixteen, yeah

Slow down
You're moving way too fast
Sixteen
There's so much for you ahead, oh
Sweet sixteen
Do you know where you're going to?

Sixteen years, sixteen prayers
Sixteen reasons why I care
Sixteen tears, you're sixteen still
Sweet sixteen, girl

I know you're feeling lonely
Who you are gonna turn to?
Just like the world's closing in on you
Sweet sixteen

You need cherish what you have
You can forget about the past
Now you can start all over, you can start all over
And cherish your life

Slow down
You're moving way too fast
You're only sixteen
There's so much more to life ahead, oh
Sweet sixteen
Do you know where you're running to?

Sweet sixteen
Do you know where you're going to?
At sixteen
Do you know where you're going to?
Slow down
Do you know where you're going to?

Sweet sixteen
At sixteen
Sweet sixteen
Sweet sixteen

This is for you miss Ann
Who is now with our Heavenly Father
Who made the real Commandments
