“Billy Idol ❀ 〈Sweet Sixteen〉” amazon
I'll do anything
For my sweet sixteen,
And I'll do anything
For little run away child
Gave my heart an engagement ring.
She took everything.
Everything I gave her,
Oh sweet sixteen.

Built a moon
For a rocking chair.
I never guessed it would
Rock her far from here
Oh, oh, oh, oh.
△≔
Someone's built a candy castle
For my sweet sixteen.
Someone's built a candy brain
And filled it in.
Well I'll do anything
For my sweet sixteen
Oh I'll do anything
For little runaway child

Well, memories will burn you.
Memories grow older as people can
They just get colder
Like sweet sixteen

Oh, I see it's clear
Baby, that you are
All through here
Oh, oh, oh, oh.
Someone's built a candy castle
For my sweet sixteen,
Someone's built a candy house
To house her in.

And I do anything
For my sweet sixteen
Oh, I do anything
For little run away girl.
Yeah, sad and lonely and blue.
Yeah, getting over you.
How, how do you think it feels
Yeah to get up in the morning, get over you.
Up in the morning, get over you.
Wipe away the tears, get over you,
get over, get over …

My sweet sixteen …

And I'll do anything
For my sweet sixteen …

Oh sweet sixteen …

Note here, it's sweet 16, not sweet 18, 21. Nor sweet 30, 40.

SIXTEEN. This is when, girls have just became sexually mature for a couple years. As to a ripe peach.

Also note, sweet 16 refers to females, not males. Males, is never sweet, at 16 or 26 or 36. With males, you have death and mayhem. Male, is sweet in the eyes of females, when he's rich or powerful.
