Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Take me to the river, drop me in the water, water

Don't know why I love her like I do?
All the changes you put me through
Take my money, my cigarettes
I haven't seen the worst of it yet

I wanna know can you'll tell me
I love to stay

Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Take me to the river, drop me in the water, water

Don't know why you treat me so bad?
Think of all the things we could have had
Love is an ocean, I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I would never regret

I wanna know that you'll tell me
I love to stay

Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Take me to the river, push me in the water

Hold me, squeeze me, love me, tease me
Till I can't, till I can't, I can't take no more of it

Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Take me to the river, push me in the water

Don't know why I love you like I do?
All the changes you put me through
Sixteen candles there on my wall
And am I the biggest fool of them all

I wanna know that you'll tell me
I love to stay

Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Take me in the river, drop me in the water

Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Take me in the river, drop me in the water
Take me to the river, drop me in the water
