For the Young at Heart - 1961

I Was Young and Foolish
< instrumental opening >
 
I was young and foolish,
When I fell in love with you . . .
Not too wise in the ways of the world
Was I . . .
Young and foolish
Were the things I used to do,
Oh what silly tricks I would try!
 
I've changed my mind about many things,
Things I never knew before . . .
But though I've changed my mind about many things,
As time goes by,
I love you more!
 
If it was young and foolish,
To fall in love with you,
And to love you with all my heart as I do,
Let me be young and foolish . . .
My whole life through!
 
( If it was young and foolish,
To fall in love with you,
And to love you with all my heart as I do . . . )
Let me be young and foolish . . .
My whole life through!
 
I'll be young and foolish . . .
My whole life through!
