I'm sure you will find Many ways to have a good time. It's fun to

You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal, You can do

was down and out with the blues. I felt no man cared if I were alive. I
felt the whole world was so tight ... 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 y.m.c.a. They can start you back on your way. It's fun to

ground. Y-m-c-a ... you'll find it at the y-m-c-a. Young man,
young man, there's no need to feel down. Young man, young man, get yourself
off the ground. Y-m-c-a ... just go to the y-m-c-a. Young man,
