"You're Sixteen (You're Beautiful and You're Mine)" as written by and Robert B./sherman Sherman....
You come on like a dream, peaches and cream
Lips like strawberry wine
You're sixteen, you're beautiful and you're mine

You're all ribbons and curls, ooh, what a girl
Eyes that sparkle and shine
You're sixteen, you're beautiful and you're mine

You're my baby, you're my pet
We fell in love on the night we met
You touched my hand, my heart went pop
Ooh, when we kissed I could not stop

You walked out of my dreams and into my arms
Now you're my angel divine
You're sixteen, you're beautiful and you're mine

You're my baby, you're my pet
We fell in love on the night we met
You touched my hand, my heart went pop
Ooh, when we kissed I could not stop

You walked out of my dreams, and into my car
Now you're my angel divine
You're sixteen, you're beautiful, and you're mine
You're sixteen, so beautiful, and you're mine
You're sixteen, you're beautiful, and you're mine
All mine, all mine, all mine
All mine, all mine, all mine

    General CommentI didn't really know that he was the one who sings this...I've known this since I was a child.

    General CommentThis song strikes me as almost a little bit creepy, because I picture a grown man singing this to a sixteen-year-old girl. He sort of emphasizes how young she is (peaches and cream, ribbons and curls) and is pretty possessive (you're mine, you're my pet). The last line is "you are mine," and it's kind of...aaagh. Am I overthinking things? Probably.

    General CommentI feel like he wrote this song in the 50s... that is why he is singing about a 16 year old girl
