The Sound of Music Lieder

Sixteen Going on Seventeen Liedtext

Rolfe: You wait little girl on an empty stage

For fate to turn the light on Your life little girl is an empty page

That men will want to write on

 

Liesl: To write on...

 

Rolfe: You are sixteen going on seventeen, baby it's time to think

Better beware, be canny and careful, baby you're on the brink

You are sixteen going on seventeen, fellows will fall in line Eager young lads, and roues and cads

Will offer you food and wine

Totally unprepared are you, to face a world of men

Timid and shy and scared are you, of things beyond your ken

You need someone older and wiser, telling you what to do I am seventeen going on eighteen, I'll take care of you

 

Liesl: I am sixteen going on seventeen, I know that I'm naive

Fellows I meet may tell me I'm sweet, and willingly I believe I am sixteen going on seventeen, innocent as a rose

Bachelor dandies, drinkers of brandies, what do I know of those

Totally unprepared am I, to face a world of men

Timid and shy and scared am I, of things beyond my ken I need someone older and wiser, telling me what to do

You are seventeen going on eighteen, I'll depend on you
