Here’s the haps:
I happened across this song by serendipity. I have heard it often enough before but just not recently. I like its upbeat, positive message and am feeling pretty good, albeit tired, today so it fit my mood.
Being “Young at Heart” according to Lexico.com is an adjective meaning:
…Especially of middle-aged or elderly people: having qualities associated with young people, especially energy, enthusiasm, or optimism.https://www.lexico.com/en/definition/young_at_heart
Colin McQueen said somewhere (I couldn’t find the exact spot, sorry) “Middle-Aged forever!” I’m not elderly although I knew a lady who was the epitome of this song when she was a hundred and five. And I’m not really sure about the energy part, especially at this time of night, but I think I have the other two, enthusiasm and optimism. I guess I am not feeling the least bit curmudgeonly today at all. Well, at this moment, anyway.
A couple of my favorite lines from this song are:
“…And life gets more exciting with each passing day…”
“…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’ll have a head-start/if you are among the very young at heart…”
