Sam Cooke - Only sixteen
Tekst en muziek: Sam Cooke
(1959)







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



We’d laugh and we’d sing
And do the little things
That made my heart glow
But 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
But 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
But she was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know



But why did you give your heart so fast
Boy, it never will happen again
But you were a mere lad of sixteen
I’ve aged a year since then



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



But she was to young to fall in love
And I was to young to know
Ohohoh, she was to young to fall in love
And I was to young to know
