Selected LyricsBook - 2009
The collaboration of Ira and George Gershwin was one of the summits of American popular music. Ira Gershwin's lyrics - with their stylish simplicity, exuberant comic invention and colloquial eloquence - have entered international culture. Robert Kimball has collected the most memorable of them into a beguiling, compact volume that includes Someone to Watch Over Me', 'My One and Only', 'Let's Call the Whole Thing Off', 'A Foggy Day (In London Town)', 'Nice Work If You Can Get It' and dozens more.'
