YOUR TEENAGE DREAMS
(Bobby Worth (m & l) 1963)
As released on Victor and Mercury 45 rpms
and sung Johnny Mathis 1963 (with Don Costa)
Don't throw away the magic
Of your teenage dreams
To lose the thrill is tragic
Keep your teenage dreams.
Hang on to your romantic wishes
That mean so much to you
And don't forget
It's never too late
For all of them to come true.
Love is a thing of glory
To a teenage heart
Don't rearrange the story
Once it's had it's start.
Then as your years multiply by twos
You'll be on them forever it seems
'Cause you're looking at life
Through a rose coloured lens
Of your teenage dreams.
Johnny Mathis has sold over 350 million records confirmed by
Guinness World Records and was the undisputed king of the
romantic Fifties ‘make out ‘ music.
