Be young, be foolish, but be happy

Don't let the rain get you down, it's a waste of time
A waste of time

Well, it's the same old story all over the world
Girl meets boy, and boy meets girl

So be young, be foolish, but be happy
Be young, be foolish, but be happy

Don't let love slip away, slip away
Live your life for today, for today

Life is too short to worry about unimportant things

Find your dream

'Cause dreamin' alone, it's a shame indeed
But if you got love that's all you need

So be young, be foolish, girl be happy
Be young, be foolish, girl stay happy

So be young, be foolish, girl be happy
Be young, be foolish, girl stay happy

So be young, be foolish, girl be happy
Be young, be foolish, girl stay happy
