Isn't It Romantic?

Lyrics:Lorenz Hart
Music:Richard Rodgers

The song was publishe 1932.

The song was originally written for a 1932's film, "Love Me Tonight".

It has a 32-bar chorus in ABAC form. Alec Wilder,
in his book American Popular Song: The Great Innovators 1900-1950,
calls it "a perfect song."

Love Me Tonight

Isn't it romantic?
Music in the night, a dream that can be heard.
Isn't it romantic?
Moving shadows write the oldest magic word.
I hear the breezes playing in the trees up above
While all the world is saying you were meant for love.

Isn't it romantic
Merely to be young on such a night as this?
Isn't it romantic?
Every note that's sung is like a lover's kiss.
Sweet symbols in the moonlight,
Do you mean that I will fall in love perchance?
Isn't it romance?

You can never capture it again. "
