Today's song from the iTunes Library in

Nice Work If You Can Get It

Lyrics:Ira Gershwin
Music:George Gershwin

The song was publishe 1937.

A Damsel in Distress, with a screenplay by noted author
and playwright P.G. Wodehouse, was Fred Astaire’s eighth musical
for RKO pictures and his third without dancing partner Ginger Rogers.
In addition to Astaire, the film included Joan Fontaine as
English aristocrat Lady Alyce Marshmorton
and the husband-wife comedy team of George Burns and Gracie Allen.
Predictably, Rogers’ absence hurt the film immeasurably
(both financially and critically), since Fontaine,
although born in England and right for the part, was unable to sing,
and her dancing in the film is nothing special.
One sequence in the picture features Astaire
and Allen dancing a routine made famous by Astaire and his sister Adele,
and although it is competent and amusing,
it was certainly a let down for those expecting the terpsichorean magic
of Rogers and Astaire.


A Damsel in Distress


The man who only live for making money
Lives a life that isn't necessarily sunny;
Likewise the man who works for fame --
There's no guarantee that time won't erase his name
The fact is
The only work that really brings enjoyment
Is the kind that is for girl and boy meant.
Fall in love -- you won't regret it.
That's the best work of all -- if you can get it.
Holding hands at midnight
'Neath a starry sky...

Oh that is nice work if you can get it.
And you can get it -- if you try.
Strolling with the one girl
Sighing sigh after sigh...
Oh nice work if you can get it.
And you can get it -- if you try.

Just imagine someone
Waiting at the cottage door.
Where two hearts become one...
Who could ask for anything more?

Loving one who loves you,
And then taking that vow...
Nice work if you can get it,
And if you get it --

Won't you tell me how?

And you can get it -- if you try.
And you can get it -- if you try.
And you can get it -- if you try.
And you can get it -- if you try

Holding hands at midnight
'Neath a starry sky...
Nice work if you can get it
And you can get it -- if you try.
Strolling with the one girl
Sighing sigh after sigh...
Nice work if you can get it
And you can get it -- if you try
Who could ask for anything more?
