About Young at Heart

"Young at Heart" is a pop standard, a ballad with music by Johnny Richards and lyrics by Carolyn Leigh. The song was written and published in 1953, with Leigh contributing the lyrics to what was originally a Richards instrumental called "Moonbeam". Frank Sinatra was the first performer to record the song, which became a million-selling hit in 1953 (and spilling over with popularity into 1954) where it reached the No. 2 spot in the Billboard charts. The song was such a hit that a movie that Sinatra was filming at the same time with Doris Day was renamed to match the song title, and the song was included in the opening and closing credits of the movie. Other performers who have recorded versions of "Young at Heart" include Bing Crosby (charting briefly in 1954 at the #24 spot), Rosemary Clooney (on her album "While we're Young"), Perry Como (on his 1960 album For the Young at Heart), Connie Francis (1961), Jimmy Durante (1963), Tony Bennett, Shawn Colvin, Bobby Vinton, Tom Waits, Barry Manilow (on his album The Greatest Songs of the Fifties), Bob Dylan, Gloria Estefan, Landon Pigg, Mark Vincent and Vonda Shepard, James Darren, Monty Alexander, and Michael Bublé (on his album To Be Loved). Wild Man Fischer recorded an eccentric version that was included on The Rhino Brothers Present the World's Worst Records.

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 or on it's 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 hundred and five
Look at all you'll derive out of bein' alive
And here is the best part, you have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart

And if you should survive to a hundred and five
Look at all you'll derive out of bein' alive
And here is the best part, you have a head start
If you are among the very young at heart
