Love Is Here To Stay

Love Is Here To Stay

music by George Gershwin (l-r: Fred Astaire, George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin)
lyric by Ira Gershwin

The more I read the papers, the less I comprehend
The world and all its capers and how it all will end.
Nothing seems to be lasting, but that isn't our affair;
We've got something permanent---I mean, in the way we care...

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, Gibralter may tumble
They're only made of clay, but---our love is here to stay...
