Roy Orbison — 16 Candles lyrics

(words and music by luther dixon and allyson khent)

Happy birthday, happy birthday, baby
Oh, I love you so

Sixteen candles make a lovely light
But not as bright as your eyes tonight (as your eyes tonight) (oh)
Blow out the candles, make your wish come true
For I'll be wishing that you love me, too (that you love me, too)

Youre only sixteen (sixteen)
But you're my teenage queen (youre my queen)
Youre the prettiest, loveliest girl Ive ever seen (Ive ever seen) (oh!)

Sixteen candles in my heart will glow
For ever and ever for I love you so (for I love you so)

Youre only sixteen (sixteen)
But you're my teenage queen (youre my queen)
Oh, you're the prettiest, loveliest girl Ive ever seen (Ive ever seen) (oh!)

Sixteen candles in my heart will glow
For ever and ever for I love you so (for I love you so)
For I love you so!!!
