Nice Work If You Can Get It

Writer(s): George Gershwin/ Ira Gershwin
(Frank did not sing the introductory part)

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 and 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
It’s nice work if you can get it, and if you get it, won’t you tell me how?
