They Can’t Take That Away From Me

They Can’t Take That Away From Me
(Ira Gershwin, George Gershwin)

Our romance won’t end on a sorrowful note
Though by tomorrow you will be gone, gone, gone
The song is ended, but as Ira Gerwish wrote
The melody, the melody lingers on and on

They may take you from me
I’ll miss your fond caress
But though they take it from me
I will still possess

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
Mmmm, they can’t take that away
Ooo, they can’t take that away
No, they can’t take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
The way you haunt my dreams
No, they can’t take that away
I said they can’t take that away
Ooo baby, they can’t take that away from me

Hey, we may never never never meet again
On that bumpy road to love
But I will always, always keep the memory of
Ira Gershwin

The way you held my hand
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
No, they can’t take that away
They can’t take that away
They can’t take that away
Oooo, can’t take that away
Oooo, they can’t take it away from me
