You Make Me Feel so Young
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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 wanna 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 gonna 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

This song plays at my workplace every day. I don't get tired of it. I'm only 23 years old but Frank is one of the best voices in history.

@estevennurkin5183

He is the best!

@Tina-qp7py

He's unforgettable. There will never be another performer like him. Some come close but can't equal his style combined with his vocal talent.

@andyhowells1141

A great comment. Isn't it sad that there is so much negativity and evil on the internet ? Good on you for being so cheerful. I wish you a really happy life
