Sweet Sixteen
B.B. King Lyrics


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

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

You can treat me mean, baby
But I'll keep on loving you just the same
Treat me mean baby, treat me mean, baby
Keep on loving you just the same
Oh, 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
Yeah
The sweetest thing, baby
Oh, you're the sweetest thing I ever seen
Well, you know I'm having so much trouble, baby
Baby, I wonder
Yes, I wonder
Baby, I wonder
Oh
I wonder what in the world's gonna happen to me
