Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You Think)

by Carl Sigman and Herb Magidson, covered by Todd Snider


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 - - Dm7 / - - - C / - - C7 F / - C G7 C / :

You work and work for years and years, you're always on the go

You never take a minute off, too busy making dough

Someday you say you'll have your fun when you're a millionaire

Imagine all the fun you'll have in some old rocking chair


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 under ground?


(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 of the time, you don't know how to laugh

They'll think of something funny when they write your epitaph
