Dr. Hook's, "Only Sixteen"
Misheard Lyrics:
Why did I get my heart so fast
You know it'll happen in bed
But I was a real child at sixteen
Half eight years since then
Original Lyrics:
Why did I give my heart so fast
It never will happen again
But I was a mere child of sixteen
I've aged a year since then
