Sixteen Going On Seventeen from The Sound of Music


Well your such a baby
I’m 16 what’s such a baby about that You wait little girl
On an empty stage
For fate to turn the light on Your life little girl
Is an empty page.That men will want to write on To write on You are 16 going on 17 baby it’s time to think Better beware
Be canny and careful
Baby you’re on the brink
You are 16 going on 17 Fellows will fall in line Eager young lads and grueways and cads will offer you food and wine Totally unprepared are you To face a world of men men Timid and shy and scared are you
Of things beyond your kin You need someone
Older and wiser. Telling you what to do I am 17 going on 18 I’ll take care of you I am 16 going on 17. I know that I’m naive Fellows I meet may tell me I’m sweet
And willingly I believe I am 16 going on 17 innocent as a rose Bachelor dandies
Drinkers of brandies What do I know of those? Totally unprepared am I To face a world of men Timid and shy and scared am I Of things beyond my ken I need someone
Older and wiser Telling me what to do You are 17 going on 18 I’ll depend on you
