    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 satin 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 you were ten
    We didn't like each other
    When you were thirteen
    You were my 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
