Vintage Chuck Berry 1958 – Sweet Little Sixteen

I discovered Chuck Berry back in 1963. It was a revelation. He was soon being covered by the Beatles, Stones and everybody else.

The video is a rare bit of rare vintage Chuck from 1958 – complete with crazy legs and a bit of duckwalking.

Chuck Berry – Sweet Little Sixteen

They’re really rockin Boston
In Pittsburgh, P. A.
Deep in the heart of Texas
And ’round the Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis
Way down in New Orleans
All the Cats wanna dance with
Sweet Little Sixteen

Sweet Little Sixteen
She’s just got to have
About half a million
Framed autographs
Her wallet’s filled with pictures
She gets ’em one by one
She gets so excited
Watch her look at her run

Oh mommy mommy
Please may I go
It’s such a sight to see
Somebody steal the show
Oh daddy daddy
I beg of you
Whisper to mommy
It’s all right with you

Cause they’ll be rockin on bandstand
In Philadelphia P.A.
Deep in the heart of Texas
And ’round the Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis
Way Down in New Orleans
All the Cats wanna dance with
Sweet Little Sixteen

Sweet Little Sixteen
She’s got the grown up blues
Tight dress and lipstick
She’s sportin’ high heal shoes
Oh, but tomorrow morning
She’ll have to chang her trend
And be sweet sixteen
And back in class again

Cause they’ll be rockin on bandstand
In Philadelphia P.A.
Deep in the heart of Texas And ’round the Frisco Bay
All over St. Louis Way Down in New Orleans
All the Cats wanna dance with
Sweet Little Sixteen
