OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Really rockin' in Boston, Pittsburgh, P.A
In the heart of Texas, on the crystal bay
All over St. Louis, down to New Orleans
All the cats wanta swing with sweet little sixteen

Four ladies promenade now, around the ring you go
Turn your partner right now, left allemande you know
Promenade your honey down to New Orleans
All the cats wanta dance with sweet little sixteen


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

1 & 3 you square thru 4 hands you go
Curlique now, scoot back you know
Boys run right, square thru 3 hands
Swing your corner lady, left allemande
Gonna weave the ring now, around you go
When you meet your baby, do a dosado
Promenade your lady down to New Orleans
All the cats wanta rock with sweet little sixteen

Sweet Little Sixteen
 
 

They're really rockin' in Boston; Pittsburgh, PA
Deep in the heart of Texas, and round the 'Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis and down in New Orleans
All the cats want to dance with Sweet Little Sixteen

Sweet Little Sixteen, she's just got to have
About a half a million framed autographs
Her wallet's filled with pictures; she gets them one by one
Becomes so excited; won't you look at her run, boy?

Oh mommy, mommy, please may I go?
It's such a sight to see somebody steal the show
Oh daddy, daddy, I beg of you
Whisper to mommy it's all right with you

Cause they'll be rocking on bandstand, Philadelphia, P.A.
Deep in the heart of Texas and round the Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis, way down in New Orleans
All the cats wanna dance with Sweet Little Sixteen

Sweet Little Sixteen, she's got the grown-up blues
Tight dresses and lipstick, she's sporting high-heeled shoes
Oh, but tomorrow morning she'll have to change her trend
And be sweet sixteen and back in class again

But they'll be rockin' in Boston; Pittsburgh, PA
Deep in the heart of Texas, and round the 'Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis and down in New Orleans
All the cats want to dance with Sweet Little Sixteen

Lyrics by Chuck Berry.
Recorded by Chuck Berry; Jerry Lee Lewis (1962); many others.
