Sixteen Candles

lyrics

Sixteen candles and a bottle of rye
I’m gonna give you just one more try
‘Cause it’s another long night
And I’m tired of just hanging around
I have tried to settle down
I fell in love and then I fell back out
and now I’ve lost my castle
And I broke my plastic crown

Friday night when I get paid
I’m gonna drink my cares away
Maybe I won’t miss her the way I do today

I lay in bed with the TV on
Gets so lonely when the daylight comes
And my eyes have grown tired
From staring at the moon all night
One more game of solitair
I think of touching her long brown hair
And I’m watching through the window
As the girls go passing by

Tried to lose myself in love
But man, I just keep fuckin’ up
Tried to love her better
but my hearts a broken cup

I catch the train on my way to work
The cars and busses do the crosstown jerk
And the rain keeps fallin’
like it’s gonna keep fallin’ for years
I hear a song on the radio
Ditty ditty wah ditty wah oh
And I’m stepping on the corner
Over bags full of rusty tears

Friday night when I get paid
I’m gonna drink my cares away
Maybe I won’t miss her the way I do today
