Fairy t[A]ales can come t[A9]rue, it can h[A]appen to [Am7]you
[A7]If you're [Bm7b5]young at he[E7]art;
For it's h[E7]ard, you will[Bm7b5] find to be [E7]narrow of [E+7]mind
If you're y[A]oung at heart.
You can[C#m7b5] go to extr[F#7]emes with im [C#m7b5]- pos - si - ble s[F#7]chemes,
L[B7+9]augh when your d[B7]reams fall a[B7+9]part at the s[B7]eams;
And l[E7]ife gets [Gdim]more exc[E7]iting [Gdim]with each [E7]passing day,
And l[A6]ove is e[Fdim]ither i[A6]n your [Fdim]heart, or[Bm7b5] on its [E7]way.
Don't you kn[A]ow that it's w[A9]orth ev'ry t[A]reasure on [Am7]earth
T[A7]o be [Bm7b5]young at h[E7]eart;
For as r[E7]ich as you [Bm7b5]are, it's much [E7]better by[E+7] far
To be y[A]oung at heart.
And if [B7+9]you should surv[B7]ive to a [B7+9]hundred and f[B7]ive,
Look at[B7+9] all you'll der[B7]ive out of b[E]eing al[Em]ive.
And h[A]ere is the best part - [E7]you'll have [Bm7b5]a head s[E7]tart
[A]If you are a[D9]mong the very [Bm7b5]young at he[A]art,
[A]If you are [D9]among the very [Bm7b5]young [E7]at he[A]art.
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 im - pos - si - ble schemes,
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 its way.
Don't you know that it's worth ev'ry 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 being alive.
And here is the best part - you'll have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart,
If you are among the very young at heart.
