[G7]As [C]I appr[Edim]oach the p[Dm7]rime of my l[G7]ife,
I [Dm7]find I [G7]have the [Cdim]time of my li[C]fe
[C/B]Learning to e[F]njoy at my l[Fdim]eisure
[Em]All the [B7]simple p[Edim]leasures,
[F]And so I [G]hap - pi - ly conc[C]ede [E7]
[A7]This is[Cm7-5] all [A7]I [Dm7]ask, [Dm7-5] [G7]
[Dm7]This is [G7]all [Fdim] I n [C]eed. [Edim] [Dm7]
[G7]Beau - [Am7]ti - [G/B]ful g [C]irls,[Am] [Edim]walk a little sl[Gdim]ower
[Dm7]When you[Fdim] walk [G7]by [C]me;
[G7]Lin - g[Am7]er - [G/B]ing s [C7]unsets,
[Dm]Stay a[Am] little l[Dm6]onger [B7] with the [Cm7]lone - [Am7]ly s [B7]ea.
[Cdim]Children [B7]everyw[Em]here, [B+]when you shoot at [Em7]bad men,
[Em6]Shoot at [A7]me [Em7] [A7]
[Am7]Take me[Am7-5] to that st[D7]range, ench[Am7]anted l[D7]and
[Dm7]Grown-ups s[Am7]eldom [Em7-5] un - ders - [G7+]tand.
[G7]Wan - [Am7]der - [G/B]ing r [C]ainbows,[Am] [Edim]leave a bit of [Gdim]color
[Dm7]For my [Fdim]heart [G7]to o [C]wn;
[G7]Stars[Am7] in [G/B]the s [C7]ky, [Dm] make my wish [Gdim]come t [Dm]rue
[B7]Before the [C]night[Cdim] has fl[Am]own,
And[Asus4] let t [Am]he m [Fm7]usic [E7-9]play as l[B7]ong as th[Em]ere's a s[C9]ong [Am7]to [Edim]sing,
A[A7]nd [Dm7] I [Dm7-5]will stay y[G7]ounger [Fdim]than Spr[C]ing.
As I approach the prime of my life,
I find I have the time of my life
Learning to enjoy at my leisure
All the simple pleasures,
And so I hap - pi - ly concede
This is[Cm7-5] all I ask,[Dm7-5]
This is all I need.
Beau - ti - ful girls, walk a little slower
When you walk by me;
Lin - ger - ing sunsets,
Stay a little longer with the lone - ly sea.
Children everywhere, when you shoot at bad men,
Shoot at me
Take me[Am7-5] to that strange, enchanted land
Grown-ups seldom[Em7-5] un - ders - tand.
Wan - der - ing rainbows, leave a bit of color
For my heart to own;
Stars in the sky, make my wish come true
Before the night has flown,
And let the music [E7-9]play as long as there's a song to sing,
And I [Dm7-5]will stay younger than Spring.
