You Make Me Feel So Young

Frank Sinatra album coverOne of my students asked me for a ukulele version of the Frank Sinatra song, You Make Me Feel So Young. These old big band songs can be really complex so the chords don’t work well on ukulele. I’ve made a simpler version for her, which you could play on ukulele or guitar. Though honestly, if you were to play a guitar version, we could spice this up a little.

You might want this chord for the Fdim, hold the notes: 1212.

You Make Me Feel So Young – Sinatra

Ukulele chords

G           Fdim    Am     D7
You make me feel so young.
G           Am       C          D
You make me feel, so spring has sprung.
G         B7     Em
And every time I see you grin,
    Am            D7
I'm such a happy individual.

G           Fdim    Am     D7
The moment that you speak,
G           Am       C          D
I wanna go play hide and seek.
G       Em     Am
I wanna go and bounce the moon,
Am7             D7
just like a toy balloon.

G7     Dm
You and I,
G7                        Dm
are just like a couple of tots,
Am7              Em
runnin' across a meadow, 
C                 D7
pickin' up lots of forget-me-nots.


G           Fdim    Am     D7
You make me feel so young.
G           Am             D7
You make me feel there are songs to be sung,
G           F
bells to be rung,
      Em         Cm          D
and a wonderful fling to be flung.

                          Am
And even when I'm old and gray,
D7                       G  E
I'm gonna feel the way I do today.
Am                  D7      G
'Cause you make me feel so young.
