"You're Never Too Old" is a song originally intended to feature in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The dwarfs, led by Happy, would originally have entertained Snow White by singing the song, the first line of which was "You're never too old to be young". It was eventually decided that the dwarfs instead sing "The Silly Song", a song very similar in nature, but more nonsensical in tone.

The song was later performed on the TV special Golden Anniversary of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, where the song was performed by Dick Van Dyke to convince the dwarfs not to retire.

An instrumental version of this song can be heard in the queue area of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction.

Lyrics

(Yodel:)
Yodel-ay-ee-hoo (etc.)

(Repeat)

(Chorus)
You're never too old to be young,
You're never too old to be young,
When you start to lose your figure,
And your hips are gettin' bigger.
Your chest may slip,
But don't you fret,
No matter how weak your knees may get,

(Chorus)
Though your teeth are out,
And your whiskers sprout,
And your arches give away,
You're never too old to be young and gay.

(Yodel)

When ya ain't got any fuzz upon your dome,
When ya ain't got any fuzz upon your dome,
Why the dickens should you care
If you ain't got any hair?
'Cuz you never have to use a brush and comb

When you know your legs are gonna give out soon,
When you know your legs are gonna give out soon,
When your joints begin to squeak,
If you practice for a week,
You can walk around and play yourself a tune,
Your voice may crack when you try to sing,
But you can't be good at everything.

(Yodel, etc.)

(Chorus)
