Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
You wait little girl
On an empty stage
For fate to turn the light on
Verse 2
Your life little girl
Is an empty page
That men will want to write on
Verse 3
To write on
Verse 4
You are sixteen going on seventeen
Baby its time to think
Better beware
Be canny and careful
Baby you're on the brink
Verse 5
You are sixteen going on seventeen
Fellows will fall in line
Eager young lads
And grue ways and cads
Will offer you fruit and wine
Verse 6
Totally unprepared are you
To face a world of men
Timid and shy and scared are you
Of things beyond your ken
Verse 7
You need someone
Older and wiser
Telling you what to do
I am seventeen going on 18
I'll take care of you
Verse 8
I am sixteen going on seventeen
I know that I'm naive
Fellows I meet may tell me I'm sweet
And willingly I believe
Verse 9
I am sixteen going on seventeen innocent as a rose
Bachelor dandies
Drinkers of brandies
What do I know of those
Verse 10
Totally unprepared am I
To face a world of men
Timid and shy and scared am I
Of things beyond my ken
Verse 11
I need someone
Older and wiser
Telling me what to do
You are seventeen going on 18
I'll depend on you
