YOUNG AT HEART (Soundtrack) Songs from the film "Young At Heart" (1954) Starring Doris Day and Frank Sinatra YOUNG AT HEART Written by Johnny Richards & Carolyn Leigh Performed by Frank Sinatra 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 its way Dont you know that its worth every treasure on earth To be young at heart For as rich as you are its 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 being alive And here is the best part, you have a head start If you are among the very young at heart ****** "Till My Love Comes To Me" Written by Ray Heindorf & Paul Francis Webster - Based on Mendelssohn's "On Wings of Song" Performed by Doris Day The night is dressed up for dreaming And on the meadows below A star falls out of the heavens And fades in the afterglow The wind embraces the willow The ivy clings to the tree My arms are waiting to hold my love Wherever my lover may be And so I'll walk in the moonlight Till my love comes to me ****** READY, WILLING AND ABLE Written by by Dick Gleason, Floyd Huddeston & Al Rinker Performed by Doris Day & Chorus I'm ready, willin' and able And honey, now it's up to you So lay your cards on the table And tell me what you plan to do I'm ready, I'm able and willin' To join you in a little fun But I won't take second billing I've got to be your number one I'm ready to give you my heart, dear I'm willing to hand you the key And I'm able to say from the start, dear It's never belonged to anyone else but me Oh, I'm ready, I'm willin' and able So if you want a love that's true Just lay your cards on the table 'Cause honey, now it's up to you I'm ready Oh yes, you know I'm ready, baby I'm willin' Oh yes, you know I'm willin', baby I'm able Oh yes, you know I'm able, baby Now I've stated my condition I've got lots of ammunition Ready, willin' and I'm able So if you

Day Hold me in your arms, hold me in your arms Tonight was meant to be Hold me in your arms, thrill me with your charms Your lips were meant for me Never let me go, suddenly I know I've never loved before With every kiss my head is spinning This is the moment I've waited for Tonight is only the beginning Hold me in your arms forevermore (Hold me in your arms) Hold me in your arms Tonight was meant to be (Hold me in your arms) Thrill me with your charms Your lips were meant for me Never let me go, suddenly I know I've never loved before With every kiss my head is spinning This is the moment I've waited for Tonight is only the beginning Hold me in your arms forevermore ****** SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME Written by George & Ira Gershwin Performed by Frank Sinatra There's a somebody I'm longing to see I hope that she turns out to be Someone who'll watch over me I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood I know I could always be good To one who'll watch over me Although I may not be the man Some girls think of as handsome But to her heart I'll carry the key Won't you tell her please to put on some speed Follow my lead, oh how I need Someone to watch over me ****** JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS Written by Cole Porter Performed by Frank Sinatra It was just one o' those things Just one o' those crazy flings One o' those bells that now and then rings Just one o' those things It was just one o' those nights Just one o' those fabulous flights A trip to the moon on gossamer wings Yes, it was one o' those things If we'd thought a bit about the end of it When we started painting that town We'd have been aware that our love affair Was too hot not to cool down So goodbye, goodbye, bye-bye, goodbye, baby, and amen Here's hopin' we meet now and then It was great fun But it was just one o' those things ****** FOR HE'S A JOLLY GOOD FELLOW (Traditional) Performed by Doris Day & Cast Members For he's a jolly good fellow For he's a jolly good fellow For he's a jolly good fellow Which nobody can deny Which nobody can deny ****** ONE FOR MY BABY (AND ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD) Written by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer Performed by Frank Sinatra Quarter to three, there's no one in the place except you and me So, set 'em up, Joe, I got a little story you oughtta know We're drinkin', my friend, to the end of a brief episode So, make it one for my baby and one more for the road I got the routine, put another nickel in the machine I'm feelin' so bad, won't you make the music easy and sad I could tell you a lot, but you've got to be true to your code So, make it one for my baby and one more for the road You'd never know it, but buddy I'm a kinda poet And I got a lot of things to say And when I'm gloomy, you simply gotta listen to me Till it's all talked away Well, that's how it goes and Joe, I know your gettin' anxious to close So, thanks for the cheer, I hope you didn't mind my bendin' your ear But this torch that I found must be drowned or it soon might explode So, make it one for my baby and one more for the road The long, that long road ****** THERE'S A RISING MOON (FOR EVERY FALLING STAR) Written by Paul Francis Webster & Sammy Fain Performed by Doris Day So what, it's raining. won't help complaining Fundamental rules of nature still apply Look up at the sky There's a rising moon for every falling star Makes no difference just how sad or blue you are One never knows about tomorrow Jjust what another day may bring One moment in your heart it's Winter Comes a rose and suddenly it's Spring There'll be times of sorrow There'll be times of joy And a bright tomorrow for each girl and boy Who knows what happiness is waiting Just a kiss away from where you are There's a rising moon for every falling star ****** YOU, MY LOVE Written by Mack Gordon & Jimmy Van Heusen
