Nice Work If You Can Get It

1937 – George Gershwin / Ira Gershwin

The man who only lives 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

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

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

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
