The Sound Of Music - Sixteen Going On Seventeen lyrics

(Rolf) 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 (Liesl) To write on (Rolf) 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 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 (Liesl) 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 your ken I need someone Older and wiser Telling me what to do You are 17 going on 18 I'll depend on you
