I don't know why I love you like I do
After all the changes you put me through
You stole my money my cigarettes
I haven't seen the worst of it yet

I want to know boy
Ah won't you tell me
Tell me how
How can I stay here with you

Won't you take me to the river
Wash me down
Take me to the river
Come put my feet back on the ground yeah

I don't know why you treat me so bad
After all the good times that we have had
Your sixteen candles they burn on my wall
Now who's the biggest fool of us all

I want to know
Won't you tell me
Tell me
How can I stay here with you

Won't you take me to the river
Wash me down
Take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground yeah

Hold me squeeze me
Love me and you can tease me
Till I can't take no more
Oh yeah yeah yeah

I don't know why I love you like I do
After all the changes you put me through
Love is a notion I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I would never regret

I want to know
Won't you tell me
Tell me
How can I stay here with you

Won't you take me to the river
Wash me down
Take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground yeah

Take me to the river
Wash me down
Won't you take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground yeah
