Frank Sinatra

Young at heart (Video*)

Fairy tales can come true
It can happen to you,
if you're young at heart
For it's hard, you will find
to be narrow of mind
if you're young at heart.

You can go to extremes,
with impossible schemes
You can laugh when your dreams
fall apart at the seams
And life gets more exciting
with each passing day
And love is either in your heart or on it's way.

Don't you know that it's worth
every treasure on earth
if you're young at heart?
For as rich as you are,
it's much better by far
to be young at heart.

And if you should survive
to a hundred and five,
think of all you'll derive
out of being alive
And here is the best part:
You had a head start**
if you are among the very young at heart.

*Leider ohne Chor und nicht ganz vollständig.
**Der Text ist aus einer Zeit, als noch nicht jeder einen Kopfsprung beherrschte. Wer so startete, schwamm der Konkurrenz natürlich um eine Körperlänge voraus.
***Der Chor singt leise die vorletzte Strophe.
