KISS & Gene Simmons: Hot, Clean and Free 16-Year-Old Nymphets


"Christine Sixteen" is the second song on Kiss' Love Gun - the rock band's sixth studio album that was released in the summer of 1977. Gene Simmons performed the lead vocals and wrote the song, which is about a man who can't live without Christine - a young, hot and clean 16-year-old nymphet.

Here are the lyrics:

She's got me dizzy, she sees me through to the end
She's got me in her hands and there's no use in pretending

Christine sixteen, Christine sixteen

She drives me crazy, I want to give her all I've got
And she's hot every day and night, there is no doubt about it

Christine sixteen, Christine sixteen

I don't usually say things like this to girls your age
But when I saw you coming out of the school that day
That day I knew, I knew (Christine sixteen)
I've got to have you, I've got to have you

She's' been around, but she's young and clean
I've got to have her, can't live without her, whoa no

Christine sixteen, Christine sixteen

Christine (Christine), sixteen (sixteen)
Christine, yeah, yeah
She's so clean (Christine), sixteen (sixteen)
Christine, yeah (Christine), yeah, yeah
Christine (Christine), sixteen (sixteen)
Christine, yeah (Christine), yeah, yeah
Christine (Christine), sixteen (sixteen)
Christine (Christine) yeah, yeah, yeah
Christine (Christine), sixteen (sixteen)
Christine (Christine), yeah, yeah, yeah
Christine (Christine), sixteen (sixteen)
Christine (Christine), yeah, yeah, yeah
Christine (Christine), sixteen (sixteen)
Christine (Christine), yeah, yeah

Christine (Christine), sixteen (sixteen)


Geoff Barton, a British music critic and journalist, opined in the February 2015 issue of Classic Rock magazine that the 2014 remastered and reissued deluxe edition of Love Gun could have been "the greatest deluxe edition of all time" if it were not for a "too-clean remastering" and 'Christine Sixteen'. However, the album went Platinum and 'Christine Sixteen' was sampled by Tone Lōc's "Funky Cold Medina".

"Goin' Blind" is the third song on Kiss' Hotter Than Hell - the bands second album that was released in the fall of 1974. Gene Simmons performed the lead vocals and co-wrote the song, which concerns an age-gap affair between a 93-year-old and a nymphet. 

Here are the lyrics:

And I know how it should be
There is nothing more for you and I
Some are young and some are free
But I think I'm goin' blind

'Cause, I think I'm goin' blind
And I know how it's to be, yeah

Little lady, can't you see
You're so young and so much different than I
I'm 93, you're sixteen
Can't you see I'm goin' blind

'Cause, I think I'm goin' blind
And I know how it's to be, yeah

'Cause, I think I'm goin' blind
And I know how it's to be, yeah

You're much younger, can't you see
There is nothing more for you and I
I'm 93, you're sixteen
And I think I'm goin' blind

Yes, I think I'm goin' blind
And I know how it's to be, yeah

The original title of "Goin' Blind" was "Little Lady" and Hotter Than Hell went Gold.
