Lyrics

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.

(Rolf)
You are 16 going on 17
Baby its 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 fruit and wine.

Totally unprepared are you
To face a world of men
Timid and shy and scared are you
Of things beyond your ken.

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.
