Nice Work If You Can Get It

By G. Gershwin & I. Gershwin

Holding hands at midnight
‘Neath a starry sky…
Oh that is nice work if you can get it.
And you can get it — if you try.

Strolling with the one girl
Sighing sigh after sigh…
Oh 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

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?
