Life Is A Song

Words and Music by Joe Young and Fred A. Ahlert

Life is a song, let’s sing it together.
Let’s take our hearts and dip them in rhyme,
Let’s learn the words, let’s learn the music together,
hoping the song last for a long, long time.

Life is a song that goes on forever.
Love’s old refrain can never go wrong.
Let’s strike the note Mendelssohn wrote concerning spring weather,
Let’s sing together and make life a song.

Don’t be afraid of the future
All of our plans will come through
How can they fail with love on our side
They’ll never fail, we won’t be denied
All the world’s a symphony, for you , for me.

Life is a song, let’s sing it together.
Let’s take our hearts and dip them in rhyme,
Let’s learn the words, let’s learn the music together,
hoping the song lasts for a long, long time.

Life is a song that goes on forever.
Love’s old refrain can never go wrong.
Let’s strike the note Mendelssohn wrote concerning spring weather,
Let’s sing it together and make life a song.
