You were sweet sixteen, you were sweet sixteen I love you as I never loved before! Since first I met you on the village green. Come to me, or my dream of love is o'er! I love you as I loved you, When you were sweet When you were sweet sixteen. When first I saw the lovelight in your eye, And dreamt the world held naught but joy for me. And even though we drifted far apart, I never dreamt of what I dream of thee I love you as I never loved before! Since first I met you on the village green. Come to me, or my dream of love is o'er! I love you as I loved you, When you were sweet When you were sweet sixteen.

[Oh no...disagreement from the other guys] (Man) I did! (Shirley) Let's try it again (Man) All right you take it (Shirley) I loved you as I loved you, when you were...
