They Can’t Take That Away From Me

They Can’t Take That Away From Me

Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers

from the musical, Shall We Dance

“…They never danced to the song in the 1937 film. This video was taken from their 1949 reunion film ‘The Barkleys of Broadway‘ where Astaire insisted on reprising this immortal tune and including a dance break…”

There are many, many crazy things
That will keep me loving you,
And with your permission
May I list a few?
The way you wear your hat.
The way you sip your tea.
The memory of all that –
No, 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, no – they can’t take that away from me.
We may never, never meet again
On that bumpy road to love
Still I’ll always,
Always keep the memory of:
The way you hold your knife (do-do-do-do do-do).
The way we danced until three.
The way you’ve changed my life.
No, no – they can’t take that away from me.
No, they can’t take that away from me.
