A Fine Romance

Lyrics:Dorothy Fields
Music:Jerome Kern

The song was publishe 1936.

The song was written for the musical film, Swing Time,
where it was co-introduced by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
Astaire had a major record hit on Brunswick records.
However, it was made most famous by Billie Holiday's recording.

Swing Time

A fine romance, with no kisses
A fine romance, my friend this is
We should be like a couple of hot tomatoes
But you're as cold as yesterday's mashed potatoes

A fine romance, you won't nestle
A fine romance, you won't even wrestle
I might as well play bridge with my old maid aunt
I haven't got a chance
This is a fine romance

A fine romance, my good fellow
You take romance, I'll take jello
You're calmer than the seals in the Arctic Ocean
At least they flap their fins to express emotion

A fine romance with no quarrels
With no insults and all morals
I've never mussed the crease in your blue serge pants
I never get the chance
This is a fine romance

(* Sinatra's 2nd chorus)
A fine romance, with no kisses
A fine romance, my friend this is
We two should be like clams in the dish of chowder
But we just fizz like parts of settless powder

A fine romance with no clinches
A fine romance with no flinches
You're just as hard to land as the Ile de France
I haven't got a chance.
This is a fine romance
