LOVE IS SWEEPING THE COUNTRY fr "Of Thee I Sing" 1931 musical New York George Gershwin (m) Ira Gershwin (l) 1931 as rec by Ella Fitzgerald w Nelson Riddle & his Orch July 18th 1959 Hollywood Why are people gay All the night and day, Feeling as they never felt before? What is the thing That makes them sing? Rich man, poor man, thief, Doctor, lawyer, chief, Feel a feeling that they can't ignore. It plays a part In every heart, And every heart is shouting "Encore!". Love is sweeping th country, Waves are hugging the shore, All the sexes >From Maine to Texas Have never known such love before! See them billing and cooing, Like the birdies above! Each girl and boy alike, Sharing joy alike, Feels that passion'll Soon be national! Love is sweeping the country, There never was so much love! See them billing and cooing, Like the birdies above! Each girl and boy alike, Sharing joy alike, Feels that passion'll Soon be national! Love is sweeping the country, There never was so much love! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - February 2012)
