#1.
C                        G                         C
They're really rockin in Boston, in Pittsburgh, P. A.
                     G                           C
Deep in the heart of Texas and 'round the Frisco Bay.
             F                     C
All over St. Louis and down in New Orleans,
                   G                        C
all the Cats wanna dance with, Sweet Little Sixteen.

#2.
             G                          C
Sweet Little Sixteen, she's just got to have,
             G               C
about half a million, framed autographs.
                         F                             C
Her wallet's filled with pictures, she gets 'em one by one.
              G                             C
She gets so excited, watch her, look at her run.

CHORUS:
            F                   C
Oh,  Mommy, Mommy, please may I go?
            G                                C
It's such a sight to see, somebody steal the show.
           F               C
Oh, Daddy, Daddy, I beg of you.
           G                          C
Whisper to Mommy, it's all right with you.

#3.
C                          G                            C
Cause they'll be rockin on Bandstand, in Philadelphia P.A.
                     G                           C
Deep in the heart of Texas and 'round the Frisco Bay.
             F                     C
All over St. Louis and down in New Orleans,
                   G                        C
all the Cats wanna dance with, Sweet Little Sixteen.

#4.
             G                               C
Sweet Little Sixteen, she's got the grown up blues.
                G                                  C
Tight dress and lipstick, she's sportin' high heel shoes.
                 F                                  C
Oh, but tomorrow morning, she'll have to change her trend,
             G                          C
And be sweet sixteen, and back in class again.

#5.
C                          G                            C
Cause they'll be rockin on Bandstand, in Philadelphia P.A.
                    G                           C
Deep in the heart of Texas and 'round the Frisco Bay.
             F                     C
All over St. Louis and down in New Orleans,
                   G                        C
all the Cats wanna dance with, Sweet Little Sixteen. (Fade.)
