The Six Teens
Sweet Lyrics


Where were you in sixty-eight
In sixty-eight Julie was Johnnie's date
Two kids growin' together
Livin' each day as if time was slippin' away
Oh, they were just sixteen
And their love a teenage dream
They passed the time, they crossed the line
The line that ran between
Julie and Johnnie now you've made it
But life goes on, you know it ain't easy
You've just gotta be strong
If you're one of the sixteens
And life goes on, you know, you know it ain't easy
You know you'll never go wrong
'Cause you're all part of the sixteens

Suzie and Davey got to make the big time
Maybe they can put it all together
In a show that lasts forever
Oh they would walk the strip at nights
And dream they saw their name in lights
On Desolation boulevard
They'll light the faded light
Suzie and Davey you can make it

But life goes on, you know it ain't easy
You've just gotta be strong
If you're one of the sixteens
And life goes on, you know, you know it ain't easy
You know you'll never go wrong
'Cause you're all part of the sixteens

So where were you in sixty-eight
When Bobby and Billy thought
That sixty eight was out of date
They took the flowers from their hair
And tried to make us all aware
Too bad, too late
So they lived from day to day
And tried to do it all their way
But sixty-eight was sixty-eight
No matter what they say
Bobby and Billy maybe you'll make it one day

But life goes on, you know it ain't easy
You've just gotta be strong
If you're one of the sixteens
And life goes on, you know, you know it ain't easy
You know you'll never go wrong
'Cause you're all part of the sixteens

I just love Brian’s and Steve’s voices together...all four of them really...blend together so well.

Jesper Gotthelf

1,2,3,4. 👍

@Gary Dunn Agree 100 percent. As one other dude said, they are all lead singers. And Mick Tucker is one of the best drummer/percussionists in that era, no doubt.

I didn't know Brian passed such a shame what happened

Gary Dunn

r.i.p Brian and Mick. Sadly missed.

Gary Dunn

They were all extremely talented guys, Brian had the great vocals, Andy played a mean lead guitar,
Steve was Ace on the Bass, and Mick could really thrash those drums. And vocally, they all harmonised
really well. Probably one of the "Best Bands" of the 70's.

Alan Self

watching Mick TUCKER/play the drums,so brilliant

Uwe Neder

One most underrated drummer ever

Charlotte Victoria. Hubbard

Check out Mick's drumming on the live video of "No you don't ". Awesome.

Ellen R.
