Young at Heart
They say I don't look over twenty,
That I'm vibrant as when I was ten.
But this bonfire you call my birthday cake
Proves I'm not as young as back then.
But numbers are simply numbers
Cause young at heart am I.
And still I feel more youthful
As every day goes by.
I feel better than when I was fifty
Or when I walked over the hill
I love to go out and do things;
I cannot seem to be still.
So now at this hour on my birthday.
I will tell my age I don't care.
I won't worry about my wrinkles
Or dye my graying hair.
I'm going to keep on having fun.
I'm just beginning to start.
And you can tell my birthday cake
That I'm still young at heart.
