I'LL BUILD A STAIRWAY TO PARADISE George Gershwin (m) Buddy De Sylva (l) Ira Gershwin (as "Arthur Francis") (l) 1922 as rec by Liza Minnelli 1967 also rec by- Paul Whiteman & his Orch '22 Georges Guetary w The MGM Studio Orch cond by Johnny Green (film - "An American In Paris" '51) I'll build a stairway to paradise With a new step ev'ry day. I'm gonna get there at any price, Stand aside I'm on my way! I got the blues And up above it's so fair; Shoes, Go on and carry me there! I'll build a stairway to paradise With a new step ev'ry day. It's madness To be always sitting around in sadness, When you could be learning the steps of gladness, (You'll be happy when you can do just six or seven!) Begin today, you'll find it nice, The quickest way to paradise. When you practise, here's the thing to do - Simply say as you go, ho; I'll build a stairway to paradise With a new step ev'ry day. I'm gonna get there at any price, Stand aside I'm on my way! I got the blues And up above it's so fair; Well shoes, Go on and carry me there! I'll build a stairway to paradise With a new step ev'ry day, With a new step ev'ry day. (Contributed by Peter Akers - October 2010)
