Lyrics and Chords


[Capo 3]

Young man, there's no need to feel down
I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground
I said, young man, 'cause you're in a new town 
There's no need to be unhappy

/ D - - - / Bm - - - / G - - - / A G A G / 
 
Young man, there's a place you can go
I said, young man, when you're short on your dough
You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time

{Refrain} 
It's fun to stay at the YMCA
It's fun to stay at the YMCA
They have everything for a man to enjoy
You can hang out with all the boys
It's fun to stay at the YMCA
It's fun to stay at the YMCA
You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal
You can do whatever you feel

/ D - - - / Bm - - - / Em Em/maj7 Em7 Em6 / A - - - / 

Young man, are you listening to me
I said, young man, what do you want to be
I said, young man, you can make real your dreams
But you got to know this one thing
 
No man does it all by himself
I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf
And just go there, to the YMCA
I'm sure they can help you today
 
{Refrain}
 
Young man, I was once in your shoes
I said, I was down and out with the blues
I felt no man cared if I were alive
I felt the whole world was so jive
 
That's when someone came up to me
And said, young man, take a walk up the street
There's a place there called the YMCA
They can start you back on your way
 
{First part of refrain}

{As refrains}
YMCA
It's fun to stay at the YMCA
Young man, young man, there's no need to feel down
Young man, young man, get yourself off the ground

YMCA
It's fun to stay at the YMCA
Young man, young man, are you listening to me
Young man, young man, what do you wanna be

YMCA
You'll find it at the YMCA
Young man, young man, does it all by himself
Young man, young man, put your pride on the shelf

YMCA
And just go to the YMCA
Young man, young man, I was once in your shoes
Young man, young man, I was down with the blues
