I don't know why I love you like I do
After all the changes that you put me through
You stole my money and my cigarettes
And I haven't seen how to have you yet
I wanna know, oh wont you'll tell me?
Just tell me how, how could I stay, here with you?
Oh will you take me to the river
And wash me down
Just take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground

I don't know why you treated me so bad
After all the good times that we could have had
Love is an ocean, that I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I would never regret
I wanna know, oh wont you tell me?
Tell me how, how could I stay, here with you?
You want to take me to the river
And help me wash me down
Just take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground

Hold me, squeeze me,
hold me and you can tease me
Until I cant take no more,
oh no more, no more, no more

I just don't know why I love you like I do
All the changes that you put me through
Your sixteen candles they burn on my wall
Now whos the biggest fool of us all
I wanna know, oh wont you tell me?
Just tell me how, how could I stay, here with you?

Oh will you take me to the river
And help to wash me down
Just take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground

Oh will you take me to the river
And help to wash me down
Oh will you take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground
