Young At Heart Lyrics
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 - To be 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 105, - Look at all you'll derive out of being alive!
And here is the best part, you have a head start - If you are among the very young at heart.
And if you should survive to 105,
Look at all you'll derive out of being alive!
And here is the best part, you have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart.
As you can see for the rhythm on this song it's pretty much an up and down with the right hand as you progress through the chord progression.
There are a few places where you stop with a little chop here and there but I suppose that will be based on every players individual arrangement.
And in the short break, you could extend it out to the full length of the verse but as you can see in my arrangement here, it's just the first half of the verse before you transition into the lyrics.
