Young At Heart

Words & Music by Carolyn Leight & Johnny Richards
Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 1954 (#2)

       A              A9           A        AM7
Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you

A7        Bm7-5      E7
If you're young at heart;

          E7           Bm7-5       E7        E7+5
For it's hard, you will find to be narrow of mind

If you're young at heart.

       C#m7-5       F#7          C#m7-5            F#7
You can  go  to extremes with im - pos - si - ble schemes,

 B7/9            B7          B7/9         B7  
Laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams;

     E7       Gdim    E7    Gdim      E7
And life gets more exciting with each passing day,

     A6      Fdim   A6     Fdim     Bm7-5     E7
And love is either in your heart, or  on  its way.

            A             A9          A          AM7
Don't you know that it's worth ev'ry treasure on earth

 A7   Bm7-5     E7
To be young at heart;

        E7         Bm7-5          E7       E7+5
For as rich as you are, it's much better by far

To be young at heart.

       B7/9           B7       B7/9         B7
And if you should survive to a hundred and five,

       B7/9           B7          E      Em
Look at all you'll derive out of being alive.

     A                      E7          Bm7-5   E7
And here is the best part - you'll have a head start

A           D9            Bm7-5      A
If you are among the very young at heart,

A          D9             Bm7-5  E7   A
If you are among the very young  at heart.
