16 is half of 32, so I won’t fall in love with you,
but I liked to watch the way you dance, listening to that bluegrass band,
happy just to be alive, I think that’s something I might try…
a faded picture of my mom, when she was 12, when she was young,
smiles at me with an angel’s face from almost 50 years away,
happy just to be alive, seek and you will surely find…

may friends and lovers, true and kind, keep your heart smiling, ever wide,
and I wish you music for the dance, and many a happy circumstance,
glad to see that you’re alive, a part of me shines just as bright,
16 is half of 32, so I won’t fall in love with you…
