ER Songs

This is an old Guy Lombardo song I heard on the radio. It could make for nice intro music if somebody ever makes this forum into a TV documentary.

Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You Think)

You work and work for years and years, you're always on the go
You never take a minute off, too busy makin' dough
Someday, 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

You're gonna take that ocean trip, no matter, come what may
You've got your reservations made but you just can't get away
Next year, for sure, you'll see the world, you'll really get around
But how far can you travel when you're six-feet under ground?

Your heart of hearts, your dream of dreams, your ravishing brunette
She's left you and she's now become somebody else's pet
Lay down that gun, don't try my friend to reach the great beyond
You'll have more fun by reachin' for a redhead 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

You never go to nightclubs and you just don't care to dance
You don't have time for silly things like moonlight and romance
You only think of dollar bills tied neatly in a stack
But when you kiss a dollar bill, it doesn't kiss you back

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

Todd Snider (folk musician) currently uses this song to close his shows.

I've got this song in a book I bought in Steamboat Springs, Colorado 20 years ago. Book entitled: "Life is Short, Eat Desert First".

Re: ER Songs

What a great song, thanks for posting.

According to a search I did, it was written by Carl Sigman & Herb Magidson.

Re: ER Songs

Good song - one of my Mom's favorites.

Being a grumpy old phart - I also like:

'Take This Job and Shove it.'

And: 'Red Necks, White Soxs and Blue Ribbon Beer.'

Re: ER Songs

DW told me she heard of a new Cand W song.
I love the title:

'My give-a-damn is busted'
