"Sweet Sixteen" as written by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin....
Today I'm gonna ride away
And feel the sun throughout my hair
Finally free to be who I want to be
Who that is I don't really care

'Cause I've got friends who love me
Blue skies are above me
My blonde hair is everywhere

[Chorus]
Sweet sixteen
Gonna spread my wings
Sweet sixteen
It's my chance to shine
Sweet sixteen
Discovering
Sweet sixteen
So much more to life
Sweet sixteen

Drivin' down to the club where we go to dance
Radio is blastin' and the top is down

There ain't nothing' in my way
'Cept the traffic of L.A.

And I've got friends who love me
Bright stars shine above me
My blonde hair is everywhere

[Chorus]

Mama loves me and a sister who shows me, and a daddy's always there

[Chorus]

I want to know what it feels like
I need to see it from the inside
I can taste a bit of what I will find
So much more to life
Sweet sixteen
Sweet sixteen

[Chorus]

    General CommentI think this soong means that she is sixteen and old enough to drive, go parties, and other previllages.
