Sixteen Going On Seventeen

(Rolf)
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

(Rolf)
You are 16 going on 17
Baby its time to think
Better beware
Be canny and careful
Baby you're on the brink 

You are 16 going on 17
Fellows will fall in line
Eager young lads
And grueways 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 kin

You need someone
Older and wiser
Telling you what to do
I am 17 going on 18 
I'll take care of you

(Liesl)
I am 16 going on 17
I know that i'm naive
Fellows I meet may tell me I'm sweet
And willingly I believe


I am 16 going on 17 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 kin

I need someone
Older and wiser
Telling me what to do
You are 17 going on 18 
I'll depend on you



Yes, been 17 for about 3 weeks. When I was a little kid, I always wonder about me having my own ID card and submit my own vote for the election. And finally, the daydreaming day has over, haha :D 

This song was one of my favorite Sound of Music's song. This song describe about 'sixteen going on seventeen' phase that every girl will go through. Well, every men will start to flirt on you, you're so naive, you don't know what's the world behind the wall. You're like a new baby trapped in a seventeen years old body.
Seventeen is just a number. It only happens once in your lifetime. Be wise, be smart, be mature. 
Because baby, now you're on the brink :)
