I'd like to be sixteen again

Oh the worst mistake I could ever make was to take taht pledge and vow
Cause now I'm tied to a nagging wife and always in a row
To scared to talk I'll walk the chalk, my head I'll meekly bow
And I'd like to be sixteen again and know what I know now

    Yea, I'd like to be sixteen again and know what I know now
    The girl please with every squeeze make em holler wow
    But its too late to change my fate such thing is not allowed
    I'd like to be sixteen again and know what I know now

I've spent my youth arunning round well I tought I knew it all
But what I learned it hard mow my head is bald
I reminisce of things I missed of fields I'd liked to plough
But I'd like to be sixteen again and know what I know now

  * Refrain

My teeth are gone I'm not too strong don't have to much to build
And ever a jug of Geritol won't change the way I feel
I'm like the dog to old to bite all I can do is growl
But I'd like to be sixteen again and know what I know now
