Only Sixteen – Sam Cooke

“Only Sixteen” Lyrics

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)
Oh, 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 too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know
Whoooa
She was too young to fall in love
And I was too young to know
