Sweet Sixteen Pts. 1 & 2
B.B. King Lyrics


How about it? How about it? It takes a lot of people to make it possible
So give 'em a big hand. Everybody is working to try to make it nicer
Anyway! As I leave you... a little bit of Sweet Sixteen for the guys
Just a taste - give me see for Sweet Sixteen...

When I first met you baby, baby you were just sweet sixteen
First met you baby, baby you was just sweet sixteen
Just left your home then baby, oh the sweetest thing I'd ever seen

But you wouldn't do nothing for me baby, you wouldn't do anything I asked you to
You wouldn't do nothing for me baby, oh you wouldn't do anything I asked you to
You know you ran away from your home baby, and now you want to run away from old me too

My brother's in Korea baby, my sister's down in New Orleans
Brother's in Korea baby, oh sister sister down in New Orleans
You know I'm having so much troubles people, baby I wonder what in the world is gonna happen to me

Oh yes sweet sixteen baby...sweet sixteen...oh yes
The sweetest thing baby, oh yes
The sweetest thing I ever seen
You know I'm having so much trouble people, baby I wonder what in the world's gonna happen to me

Sweet sixteen...sweet sixteen oh yes
You know I'm having so much trouble people
Baby I wonder
Yes I wonder
Baby I wonder
I wonder what in the world's gonna happen to me

A man singing about back in the day when he met his 16 year old girlfriend. He's obviously 16 or 17 as well and afraid of getting drafted to Korea with his big brother. He would rather continue trying to become rich & famous by making music.
