Enjoy yourself

Composición: Carl Sigman
Interpretación: Louis Prima y su orquesta

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.
(Bis)

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.
(Bis)

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 yourself, enjoy yourself
It’s later than you think.
(Bis)

Enjoy yourself, don't be a fool!
