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!
Yes Write on..........
You are sixteen going on seventeen Baby, it's time to think Better beware, be canny and careful Baby, you're on the brink
You are sixteen going on seventeen Fellows will fall in line Eager young lads and rogues 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 ken.
You need someone older an wiser Telling you what to do I am 3? going on 3? and I will take care of you.
Happy 17th birthday Shelly!! I love you!!
