"Young At Heart" Lyrics - 32 Million Hits On Net

Image: The Senior Silver Strings Family (from left): Veronica, Mike, Andy, Danny Boy, Bobo, Aloysius, Audie. (Seated): *Masrom, Herb, Louis.

This song generated 32 million searchers on Google today:
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 on on its 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 105
Look at all you'll derive out of being alive
Here is the best part
You have a headstart
If you are among the very young at heart!

Music: Johnny Richards/Lyrics: Carolyn Leigh (1953)
Song covered by dozens of singers, including: FRank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Connie Francis, Bobby Vinton, Willie Nelson, Barry Manilow...

Though the hair on our heads have gone white, the heart is still evergreen. But we must also be mindful of the fact that nothing is permanent so let's take our age in our stride and make the best of the remaining time. RICKY LIM

Like my friend Roger Poh, who has a great website at rogerph.wordpress.com, believes that life is only an illusion.
We should make full use of the remaining time.
Thank you Ricky.
