As performed by MAURICE CHEVALIER and JEANETTE MacDONALD in the 1932 film "Love Me Tonight": CHEVALIER: My face is glowing, I'm energetic The art of sewing I find poetic My needle punctuates the rhythm of romance I don't give a stitch if I don't get rich A custom tailor who has no custom Is like a sailor, no one will trust 'em But there is magic in the music of my shears I shed no tears, lend me your ears Isn't it romantic Soon I will have found some girl that I adore Isn't it romantic While I sit around, my love can scrub the floor She'll kiss me every hour or she'll get the sack And when I take a shower, she can scrub my back Isn't it romantic On a moonlight night she'll cook me onion soup Kiddies are romantic And if we don't fight, we soon will have a troupe We'll help the population It's a duty that we owe to France Isn't it romance? MacDONALD: Isn't it romantic Music in the night, a dream that can be heard Isn't it romantic That a hero might appear and say the word Brought by a secret charm or by my heart's command My prince will ride in armour just to kiss my hand Isn't it romantic He will hear my call and bend his royal knee Isn't it romantic He'll be strong and tall and yet a slave to me Sweet lover of my fancy We welcome tonight, to love perchance Isn't it romance? ********************* As recorded by JEANETTE MacDONALD: I've never met you, yet never doubt, dear I can't forget you, I've thought you out, dear I know your profile and I know the way you kiss Just the thing I miss on a night like this If dreams are made of imagination I'm not afraid of you, my creation Without a blush I give my lips for you to take Why should I quake, I'm not awake Isn't it romantic How I know your voice, a dream that can be heard Isn't it romantic Can I help rejoice at each endearing word Brought by a secret charm or by my heart's command Your life will be an honour just to kiss my hand Isn't it romantic You will hear my call and bend your royal knee Isn't it romantic You're so straight and tall and yet made for me Sweet lover of my fancy Will you ever come tonight perchance Isn't it romance? (Orchestral Interlude) Sweet lover of my fancy Will you ever come tonight, to love perchance Isn't it romance? ******************** As recorded by REX BLAINE with TOM BERWICK & THE RITZ-CARLTON ORCH.: Isn't it romantic Music in the night, a dream that can be heard Isn't it romantic Moving shadows write the oldest magic word I hear the breezes playing in the trees above While all the world is saying you were meant for love Isn't it romantic Merely to be young on such a night as this Isn't it romantic Every note that's sung is like a lover's kiss Sweet symbols in the moonlight Do you mean that I will fall in love perchance Isn't it romance? (Orchestral Interlude) Isn't it romantic Soon I will have found some girl that I adore Isn't it romantic While I sit around, my love can scrub the floor She'll kiss me every hour or she'll get the sack And when I take a shower, she can scrub my back Now, isn't that romantic On a moonlight night she'll cook me onion soup Kiddies are romantic And if we don't fight, we soon will have a troupe We'll help the population It's a duty that we owe to dear old France Isn't it romance? ******************** As recorded by MEL TORMÉ: I've never met you, yet never doubt, dear I can't forget you, I've thought you out, dear I know your profile and I know the way you kiss Just the thing I miss on a night like this If dreams are made of imagination I'm not afraid of my own creation With all my heart, my heart is here for you to take Why should I quake, I'm not awake Isn't it romantic Music in the night, a dream that can be heard Isn't it romantic Moving shadows write the oldest magic word I hear the breezes playing in the trees above While all the world is saying you were meant for love Isn't it romantic Merely to be young on such a night as this Isn't it romantic Every note that's sung is like a lover's kiss Sweet symbols in the moonlight Do you think that we could fall in love perchance Isn't it romance?
