Sweet Little Sixteen
Chuck Berry Lyrics


They're really rockin' Boston
In Pittsburgh, P. A.
Deep in the heart of Texas
And 'round the Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis
Way down in New Orleans
All the Cats wanna dance with
Sweet Little Sixteen

Sweet Little Sixteen
She's just got to have
About half a million
Framed autographs
Her wallet's filled with pictures
She gets 'em one by one
Becomes so excited
Watch her look at her run

Oh mommy mommy
Please may I go
It's such a sight to see
Somebody steal the show
Oh daddy daddy
I beg of you
Whisper to mommy
It's all right with you

'Cause they'll be rockin on bandstand
In Philadelphia P.A.
Deep in the heart of Texas
And 'round the Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis
Way Down in New Orleans
All the Cats wanna dance with
Sweet Little Sixteen

'Cause they'll be rockin on bandstand
Philadelphia P.A.
Deep in the heart of Texas
And 'round the Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis
Way Down in New Orleans
All the Cats wanna dance with ooh
Sweet Little Sixteen

Sweet Little Sixteen
She's got the grown up blues
Tight dresses and lipstick
She's sportin' high heal shoes
Oh, but tomorrow morning
She'll have to chang her trend
And be sweet sixteen
And back in class again

But they'll be rockin' in Boston
In Pittsburgh, P. A.
Deep in the heart of Texas
And 'round the Frisco Bay
Way out in St. Louis
Way down in New Orleans
All the Cats wanna dance with
Sweet Little Sixteen

Chuck's guitar is not plugged in and he is lip-synching, but he did all his classic moves.

Every single act on American Bandstand lip-synched while their record played.

He wrote his own songs, he wrote his own lyrics, he payed guitar very well. Sounds like the real king of rock and roll to me..

Elvis was white 🤴

@iplayloud2 A young Elvis Presley was electrifying and highly entertaining. But in his final decade he became a strange apparition (not unlike Michael Jackson) who was disheveled and so doped up that he could often not remember the lyrics. He became a costumed lounge act more memorable for his bloated appearance. Presley was in his heyday from '56 to '62 with a flash of brilliance with his Las Vegas comeback show in 1969. He did not write his own songs and he was never more than a guitar strummer. He did not have Chuck Berry's talent.

Is the fucking god of rock and roll
