Only Sixteen
Craig Douglas Lyrics


Only sixteen, only sixteen
Only sixteen, only sixteen

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
I loved her so
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

We'd laugh and we'd sing, and do little things
That made my heart glow
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

Why did I give my heart so fast?
It never will happen again
'Cause I was a mere lad of sixteen
I've aged a year since then

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
With eyes that would glow
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

Why did I give my heart so fast?
It never will happen again
'Cause I was a mere lad of sixteen
I've aged a year since then

She was only sixteen, only sixteen
With eyes that would glow
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

That she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

That she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know

That she was too young

Gyurka Molnár

I was listening it by the lake Balaton in HUNGARY where we had a small weekend-house (5 x 5 m) that time, later my mother sold it in 1972,.

Personally I am a massive Sam Cooke fan. He wrote this song under the name of Campbell, but I absolutely love Craig Douglas’ version. Brilliant track, terrific version and a well deserved number one in 1959😎👍

Szabolcs Ricky Bodnar

My favorite version.

Richard Taylor

''Only Sixteen'' by Craig Douglas is the ninety fourth UK Number One single
