Our Love Is Here To Stay

Music by George Gershwin Lyrics by Ira Gershwin

One of the last songs the Gershwin brothers wrote together. (for the movie the Goldwyn Follies)

It’s very clear
Our love is here
To stay ;
Not for a year
But ever and a day
The radio and the telephone
And the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies
And in time may go!
But, oh my dear
Our love is here to stay
Together we’re
Going a long, long way
In time the Rockies may crumble
Gibraltar may tumble
There’re only made of clay
But our love is here to stay
