Quotations by Berlin, Irving


A pretty girl is like a melody
That haunts you night and day,
Just like the strain of a haunting refrain,
She’ll start upon a marathon
And run around your brain.

Irving Berlin (1888-1989) American songwriter [b. Isidore Beilin]
“A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody” (1919)

Heaven,
I’m in Heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak,
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek.

Irving Berlin (1888-1989) American songwriter [b. Isidore Beilin]
“Cheek to Cheek,” in Top Hat (1935)
