LIFE IS A SONG (Fred Emil Ahlert (m) / ) Joe Young (l) ) 1935 As sung by Ruth Etting 1935 Also sung by: Tony Bennett (with Count Basie) Life is a song, let's sing it together. Let's take our hearts and dip them in rhyme, Let's learn the words, let's learn the music together, Hoping the song, last for a long, long time. Life is a song, that goes on forever. Love's old refrain can never go wrong. Let's strike the note, Mendelssohn wrote, concerning spring weather, Let's sing it together and make life a song. Don't be afraid of the future All of our plans will come true How can they fail with love on our side They'll never pale, we won't be denied. All the world's a symphony For you, for me... Life is a song, let's sing it together. So let's take our hearts and dip them in rhyme, Let's learn the words, let's learn the music together, Hoping the song, last for a long, long time. Oh, life is a song, that goes on forever. Love's old refrain can never go wrong. Let's strike the note, Mendelssohn wrote, concerning spring weather, Ah, let's sing it together and make life a song. Notes: Ruth Etting was an American songstress and actress of the 1920s/30s. Many knew her as 'America's Sweetheart of Song' and she was famous for her beauty as well as her appealing voice. Her enormous popularity attested to her poise and ability to captivate her audiences. She could hold her own as a 'torch singer' with the likes of Libby Holman, Helen Morgan, Bebe Daniels, and Annette Hanshaw. Some even contend that she was 'the' most popular torch singer ever. She worked in several mediums during her career, stage, radio and film and had over 60 popular recordings. She had a difficult personal life and it would eventually become the subject of a 1955 film [Love Me Or Leave Me]. Many might agree that her best known hit songs are LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME , 'DEED I DO, and the melody above. (Transcribed by David Story June 2014)
