sha la la la la– Young Heart 4ever 60s Song

“sha la la la la” Lyrics

There’s a boy in my mind and he knows I’m thinkin’ of him
All my way to the day and the night the stars shine above me.
He’s been gone for some time but I know I truly love him.
And I’m singing a song, hoping he’ll be back when he hears it.
My heart goes shalala lala, shalala in the morning.
Oh oh oh shalala lala, shalala in the sunshine.
Shalala lala, shalala lala in the evening.
Shalala lala shalala lala just for you.
If your love’s gone away just like mine you feel like crying.
Sing along maybe once maybe twice, let’s try it together.
Some sweet day no one knows he’ll return and you’ll be happy.
Shout it sweet in a song, listen to your heart it is singin’
My heart goes shalala lala, shalala in the morning.
Oh oh oh shalala lala, shalala in the sunshine.
Shalala lala, shalala lala in the evening.
Shalala lala shalala lala just for you.
If your love’s gone away just like mine you feel like crying.
Sing along maybe once maybe twice, let’s try it together.
Some sweet day no one knows he’ll return and you’ll be happy.
Shout it sweet in a song, listen to your heart it is singin’
My heart goes shalala lala, shalala in the morning.
Oh oh oh shalala lala, shalala in the sunshine.
Shalala lala, shalala lala in the evening.
Shalala lala shalala lala just for you.

Vengaboys version

The song was covered by Dutch Eurodance group Vengaboys in 2000. It remixes the song with typical Vengaboys synth and drum beats, although it keeps substantially the same tempo.

sha la la la la Music video

The music video is modeled after the single cover. It takes place in a fictional Alpine bar named “Wurst & Women”. The video primarily focuses on lead vocalist Kim Sasabone performing the song. It features female dancers dressed in a skimped-up version of a dirndl and wearing blonde wigs in a double bun braid. Some men are dressed in lederhosen. After the second verse, the song pauses with a record scratch wherein the two male group members engage in a parody dance battle. The music video was banned by BBC.
