Sweet sixteen goes to church just to see the boys

Laugh and screams and giggles at every little noise

Turns her face a little then turns her head awhile

But everybody knows she's only putting on the style


<chorus> (after each verse)

Putting on the agony putting on the style

That's what all the young folks are doing all the while

And as I look around me I'm sometimes apt to smile

Seeing all the young folks putting on the style


Young man in the hot rod car driving like he'ks mad

With a pair of yellow gloves he's borrowed from his Dad

He makes it roar so lively just to see his girlfriend smile

But she know he's only putting on the style


Preacher in the pulpit roars with all his might

Sing glory hallelujah puts the folks all in a fright

Now you might think it's satan that's a coming down the aisle

But it's only our poor preacher boys that's putting on his style


<solo> <chorus> <chorus>
