Intro:

	Tra la-la-la-la la-la-la-la
	Happy birthday sweet sixteen
	Tra la-la-la-la la-la-la-la
	Happy birthday sweet sixteen

Verse 1:

	 C#                 F7
	Tonight's the night    I've waited for
	Bbm                       C#7
	Because you're not a baby     anymore
	F#             Gdim              C#/Ab          Bb7
	You've turned into the prettiest girl I've ever seen
	 Eb7                     Ab7
	Happy birthday sweet sixteen

Verse 2:

	What happened to that funny face
	My little tomboy now wears satins and lace
	I can't believe my eyes you're just a teenage dream
	 Eb7   Ab7               C#
	Happy birthday sweet sixteen

Bridge:

	Ab7
	When you were only six
	C#
	I was your big brother
	Ab7
	Then when you were ten
	C#
	We didn't like each other
	Bb7
	When you were thirteen
	            Ebm
	You were my funny valentine
	     Eb7 [N.C.]
	But since you've grown up
	      Eb7 [N.C.]
	Your future is sewn up
	 Ab7
	From now on you're gonna be mine, so

Verse 3:

	If I should smile with sweet surprise
	It's just that you've grown up before my very eyes
	You've turned into the prettiest girl I've ever seen
	 Eb7   Ab7               C#    A7
	Happy birthday sweet sixteen
