Lyrics:

"Shall We Dance"

music by George Gershwin and lyrics by Ira Gershwin

 FRED:

Drop that long face. Come on. Have your fling.
Why keep nursing the blues?

If you want this old world on a string,
Put on your dancing shoes. Stop wasting time.
Put on your dancing shoes. Watch your spirits climb.

Shall we dance, or keep on moping?
Shall we dance and walk on air?
Shall we give in to despair?
Or shall we dance with never a care?

Life is short. We're growing older.
Don't you be an also ran.
You've got to dance, little lady. Dance, little man.
Dance whenever you can.

(dancing)

FRED AND GINGER: (reprise of "They All Laughed")

They all said we'd never get together.
They laughed at us, and how!
But ho, ho, ho.
Who's got the last laugh now?
