Nice Work If You Can Get It

The Glory Of Gershwin, 3 minutes

Nice Work If You Can Get It
  • Nice Work If You Can Get It

Lyrics

Sting

Written by George & Ira Gershwin
The man who only lives for making money
Lives a life that isn't necessarily sunny
Likewise the man who works for fame

There's no guarantee that time won't erase his name
The fact is, the only work that really brings enjoyment
Is the kind that is girl and boy meant
Fall in love you won't regret it

That's the best work of all if you can get it
Holding hands at midnight
'Neath a starry sky
Nice work if you can get it

And you can get it if you try
Strolling with the one girl
Sighing sigh after sigh
Nice work if you can get it

And you can get it if you try
Just imagine someone
Waiting at the cottage door
Where two hearts become one

Who could ask for anything more?
Loving one who loves you
And then taking that vow
Nice work if you can get it

And if you get it
Oh won't you tell me how?
