Song Author Carl Sigman og Herb Magidson Lyrics by: Carl Sigman og Herb Magidson Performer: Guy Lombardo Submitted by: Anonymous
You w[C]ork and [Am]work for ye[C]ars and [Am]years, you're a[C]lways [Am]on the [Dm]go;   
You n[Dm7]ever t[G7]ake a m[Dm7]inute [G7]off, too [Dm7]busy m[G7]akin' [C]dough.
Somed[C]ay, you [Am]say, you'll h[C]ave your f[Am]un when y[C]ou're a [C7]millionai[F]re --
Imag[F]ine a[Fm]ll the [C]fun you'll [A]have in [Dm7]your old [G7]rockin' ch[C]air. [G7]    

Enj[C]oy yourself, it's later [Am7]than you t[Dm7]hink;    
Enjoy yours[G7]elf, while y[Dm7]ou're still [G7]in the p[C]ink.
The [C]years go by as quickly [C7]as a wi[F]nk  
Enj[Dm7]oy yours[F]elf, en[C]joy your[Am]self, it's [Dm7]later t[G7]han you t[C]hink.

You're g[C]onna t[Am]ake that[C] ocean t[Am]rip, no m[C]atter, c[Am]ome what [Dm]may;   
You've [Dm7]got your [G7]reserv[Dm7]ations [G7]but you [Dm7]just c[G7]an't get aw[C]ay.  
Next y[C]ear, for[Am] sure, you'll [C]see the w[Am]orld, you'll [C]really [C7]get ar[F]ound --
But h[F]ow far c[Fm]an you [C]travel w[A]hen you're [Dm7]six-feet [G7]under gr[C]ound? [G7]    

Your h[C]eart of [Am]hearts, your d[C]ream of [Am]dreams, your ra[C]vis  [Am]hing br[Dm]unette;
She's [Dm7]left you [G7]and she's [Dm7]now bec[G7]ome some[Dm7]body e[G7]lse's p[C]et.  
Lay do[C]wn that [Am]gun, don't t[C]ry, my fr[Am]iend, to r[C]each the [C7]great bey[F]ond;
You'll h[F]ave more [Fm]fun by [C]reachin' [A]for a [Dm7]redhead [G7]or a bl[C]onde. [G7]    

Enj[C]oy yourself, it's later [Am7]than you t[Dm7]hink;    
Enjoy yours[G7]elf, while y[Dm7]ou're still [G7]in the p[C]ink.
The [C]years go by as quickly [C7]as a wi[F]nk  
Enj[Dm7]oy yours[F]elf, en[C]joy your[Am]self, it's [Dm7]later t[G7]han you t[C]hink.

You [C]never [Am]go to n[C]ightclubs [Am]and you j[C]ust don't [Am]care to[Dm] dance;
You [Dm7]don't have [G7]time for s[Dm7]illy th[G7]ings like [Dm7]moonlight a[G7]nd roma[C]nce.
You [C]only th[Am]ink of [C]dollar b[Am]ills tied [C]neatly [C7]in a st[F]ack;
But w[F]hen you k[Fm]iss a d[C]ollar b[A]ill, it [Dm7]doesn't [G7]kiss you b[C]ack. [G7]    

Enj[C]oy yourself, it's later [Am7]than you t[Dm7]hink;    
Enjoy yours[G7]elf, while y[Dm7]ou're still [G7]in the p[C]ink.
The [C]years go by as quickly [C7]as a wi[F]nk  
Enj[Dm7]oy yours[F]elf, en[C]joy your[Am]self, it's [Dm7]later t[G7]han you t[C]hink.

You work and work for years and years, you're always on the go;
You never take a minute off, too busy makin' dough.
Someday, you say, you'll have your fun when you're a millionaire --
Imagine all the fun you'll have in your old rockin' chair.

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think;
Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink.
The years go by as quickly as a wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think.

You're gonna take that ocean trip, no matter, come what may;
You've got your reservations but you just can't get away.
Next year, for sure, you'll see the world, you'll really get around --
But how far can you travel when you're six-feet under ground?

Your heart of hearts, your dream of dreams, your ravishing brunette;
She's left you and she's now become somebody else's pet.
Lay down that gun, don't try, my friend, to reach the great beyond;
You'll have more fun by reachin' for a redhead or a blonde.

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think;
Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink.
The years go by as quickly as a wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think.

You never go to nightclubs and you just don't care to dance;
You don't have time for silly things like moonlight and romance.
You only think of dollar bills tied neatly in a stack;
But when you kiss a dollar bill, it doesn't kiss you back.

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think;
Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink.
The years go by as quickly as a wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think.
