Lyrics:

(LyricFind)

You make me feel so young

You make me feel so Spring has sprung

And every time I see you grin

I’m such a happy individual

The moment that you speak

I want to go play hide and seek

I wanna go and bounce the moon

Just like a toy balloon

You and I

Are just like a couple of tots

Running across a meadow

Pickin’ up lots of forget me nots

You make me feel so young

You make me feel there are songs to be sung

Bells to be rung

And a wonderful fling to be flung

And even when I’m old and gray

I’m gonna feel the way I do today

‘Cause you make me feel so young

You make me feel so young

You make me feel so spring has sprung

And every time I see you grin

I’m such a happy individual

The moment that you speak

I want to go and play hide and seek

I wanna go and bounce the moon

Just like a toy balloon

You and I

Are just like a couple of tots

Running across a meadow

Pickin’ up lots of forget me nots

You make me feel so young

You make me feel there are songs to be sung

Bells to be rung

Wonderful fling to be flung

And even when I’m old and gray

I’m going to feel the way I do today

‘Cause you, you make me feel so young

You make me feel so young

You make me feel so young

Ooh, you make me feel so young
