As a birthday gift to myself I’m taking a blog-free holiday for the remainder of 2019. Wishing you all the best of the rest of this year and depart singing along to this tuneful reminder:

“You never go to night clubs 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”

Song quotes from “Enjoy Yourself“, 1949. Recorded by Guy Lombardo and Louis Prima

Music written by Carl Sigman and lyrics by Herb Magidson.

 

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 the minute off
Too busy making dough
Someday you’ll say
You’ll have your fun
When you’re a millionaire
Imagine all the fun you’ll have
In your ‘ol rocking 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

C’mon now, you gotta have fun!

You’re gonna take that ocean trip
No matter come what may
You’ve got your reservations 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 underground

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

Get out and see the world!

You worry when the weather’s cold
You worry when it’s hot
You worry when you’re doing well
You worry when you’re not
It’s worry worry all the time
You don’t know how to laugh
They’ll think of something funny when
They write your epitaph

You never go to night clubs 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
