Israel Gershvin) Music by: George Gershwin (b. Jacob Gershvin) Producer: Norman Granz Orchestra: Nelson Riddle From the Film: Shall We Dance 1936 (M) Lyrics: 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 mopin'? 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'd better dance, little lady Dance, little man Dance whenever you can.
