  • 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 a hundred and five
    Look at all you'll derive out of bein' 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 a hundred and five
    Look at all you'll derive out of bein' alive
    And here is the best part, you have a head start
    If you are among the very young at heart Writer/s: Carolyn Leigh, Johnny Richards
