happy birthday, sweet sixteen lyrics – neil sedaka

happy birthday, sweet sixteen

tra la-la-la-la la-la-la-la
happy birthday sweet sixteen
tra la-la-la-la la-la-la-la
happy birthday sweet sixteen

tonight’s the night i’ve waited for
because you’re not a baby anymore
you’ve turned into the prettiest girl i’ve ever seen,
happy birthday sweet sixteen

what happened to that funny face
my little tomboy now wears satins and lace
i can’t believe my eyes you’re just a teenage dream
happy birthday sweet sixteen

when you were only six i was your big brother
then when a you were ten we didn’t like each other
when you were thirteen you was a funny valentine
but since you’ve grown up your future is sewn up
from now on you’re gonna be mine, so

if i should smile with sweet surprise
it’s just that you’ve grown up before my very eyes
you’ve turned into the prettiest girl i’ve ever seen
happy birthday sweet sixteen

if i should smile with sweet surprise
it’s just that you’ve grown up before my very eyes
you’ve turned into the prettiest girl i’ve ever seen
happy birthday sweet sixteen

tra la-la-la-la la-la-la-la happy birthday sweet sixteen
tra la-la-la-la la-la-la-la happy birthday sweet sixteen
tra la-la-la-la la-la-la-la happy birthday sweet sixteen
