Originally from the Album: ()

Lyrics:
[Originally performed by the Tams]

Be young, be foolish, but be happy
Be young, be foolish, but be happy

Don't let the rain get you down, it's a waste of time
A waste of time
Have your morn, live every day in the bright sunshine
Bright sunshine

Well, it's the same old story all over the world
Girl meets boy, and boy meets girl

Oh, be young, be foolish, but be happy
Be young, be foolish, but be happy

Life is too short to worry about unimportant things
Important things
Reach for the sky, touch your star, find your dream
Find your dream

'Cause dreamin' alone, it's a shame indeed
but if you've got love that's all you need

So be young, be foolish, but be happy
Be young, be foolish, but be happy

Don't let love slip away, slip away
Live your life for today, for today, oh baby

Well, it's the same old story all over the world
Girl meets boy, and boy meets girl

Oh, be young, be foolish, but be happy
Be young, be foolish, but be happy

Be young, be young, be foolish, be foolish, but be happy
Be young, be young, be foolish, be foolish, but be happy
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
