As recorded by DONALD PEERS with The Cherokeys: Enjoy yourself while you're still in the pink Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself It's later than you think. You work and work for years and years You're always on the go Never take a minute off To busy makin' dough Some day, you say, you'll have your fun When you're a millionaire Imagine all the fun you'll have In your old rockin' chair Enjoy yourself it's later than you think Enjoy yourself while you're still in the pink The years go by as quickly as a wink Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself It's later than you think. (Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself it's later than you think) Your heart of hearts, your dream of dreams Your ravishing brunettes Has left you now and she's become Somebody else's pet (pity isn't it) Lay down that gun, don't try my friend To reach the great beyond You'll have more fun by reaching For a red-head or a blonde Enjoy yourself it's later than you think Enjoy yourself while you're still in the pink The years go by as quickly as a wink Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself It's later than you think. (Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself it's later than you think) (Spoken: There's another thing I want to tell you, too....) You love somebody very much You'd like to set the date But money doesn't grow on trees So you decide to wait (Foolish Fellow) You're so afraid that you will bite off More than you can chew Don't be afraid, you won't have teeth When you reach ninety two. Enjoy yourself it's later than you think Enjoy yourself while you're still in the pink The years go by as quickly as a wink Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy yourself It's later than you think. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy yourself it's later than you think (Contributed by Bill Huntley - January 2005) ********************** As recorded by DORIS DAY with George Wyle & His Orch.: You work and work for years and years, You're always on the go! You never take a minute off, Too busy makin' dough! Some day, you say, you'll have your fun, When you're a millionaire; Imagine all the fun you'll have In your old rockin' chair! Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think, Enjoy yourself while you're still in the pink! The years go by as quickly as a wink; Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think! Come on now, you're out to have fun! You're gonna take that ocean trip, No matter come what may! You get your reservation but You just can't get away! Next year for sure you'll see the world, You'll really get around, But far far can you travel When you're six feet under ground! Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think, Enjoy yourself while you're still in the pink! The years go by as quickly as a wink; Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think! Get out and see the world! You worry when the weather's cold, You worry when it's hot! You worry when you're doin' well, You worry when you're not! It's worry worry all the time, You don't know how to laugh; They'll think of something funny When they write your epitaph! Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think, Enjoy yourself while you're still in the pink! The years go by as quickly as a wink; Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - October 2012) ******************** As recorded by GUY LOMBARDO: You work and work for years and years You're always on the go You never take a minute off Too busy makin' dough Some day, you say, you'll have your fun When you're a millionaire Imagine all the fun you'll have In your old rockin' chair Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink The years go by as quickly as a wink Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think You're gonna take that ocean trip No matter, come what may You've got your reservations made But you just can't get away Next year for sure you'll see the world You'll really get around But how far can you travel When you're six feet under ground Your heart of hearts, your dream of dreams Your ravishing brunette She's left you and she's now become Somebody else's pet Lay down that gun, don't try my friend To reach the great beyond You'll have more fun by reaching for A redhead or a blonde Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think Enjoy yourself ,while you're still in the pink The years go by as quickly as a wink Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think You never go to nightclubs And you never like to dance You don't have time for silly things Like moonlight and romance You only think of dollar bills Tied neatly in a stack But when you kiss a dollar bill It doesn't kiss you back Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink The years go by as quickly as a wink Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2013)
