                     "Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen"
                   (Neil Sedaka / Howard Greenfield)

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:

	 Db                 F7
	Tonight's the night    I've waited for
	Bbm                       Db7
	Because you're not a baby     anymore
	Gb             Gdim              Db/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               Db
	Happy birthday sweet sixteen

Bridge:

	Ab7
	When you were only six
	Db
	I was your big brother
	Ab7
	Then when you were ten
	Db
	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               Db    A7
	Happy birthday sweet sixteen

[key change]

[repeat verse 3, in D]

	D                 F#7
	If I should smile     with sweet surprise
	Bm                                D7
	It's just that you've grown up before my very eyes
	 G             G#dim             D/A             B7
	You've turned into the prettiest girl I've ever seen
	 E7    A7                D
	Happy birthday sweet sixteen

Coda [repeat to fade]:

	 D              Bm

	        G             A
	Happy birthday sweet sixteen
