Ira Gershwin
Poor Jenny, bright as a penny!
Her equal would be hard to find.
She lost one dad and mother,
A sister and a brother--
But she would make up her mind.
Gershwin quotes
In time the Rockies may crumble,
Gibraltar may tumble,
They're only made of clay,
But our love is here to stay.
Gershwin
The way you wear your hat,
The way you sip your tea,
The mem'ry of all that
No, no! They can't take that away from me!




Gershwin Ira quotes
You like potato and I like po-tah-to,
You like tomato and I like to-mah-to;
Potato, po-tah-to, tomato, to-mah-to
Let's call the whole thing off!
Gershwin Ira
Summertime and the livin' is easy,
Fish are jumpin', and the cotton is high.
Oh yo' daddy's rich, and yo' ma is good lookin',
So hush, little baby, don' yo' cry.
Ira Gershwin quotes
Nice work if you can get it,
And you can get it if you try.
Ira Gershwin
You've made my life so glamorous,
You can't blame me for feeling amorous.
'S wonderful, 's marvellous
That you should care for me.
Gershwin Ira quotes
They all laughed at Christopher Columbus
When he said the world was round;
They all laughed when Edison recorded sound.
Gershwin
It ain't necessarily so,
It ain't necessarily so.
De t'ings dat yo' li'ble
To read in de Bible,
It ain't necessarily so.
