Let’s Face the Music and Dance

There may be trouble ahead
But while there’s music and moonlight and love and romance
Let’s face the music and dance
***
Before the fiddlers have fled
Before they ask us to pay the bill and while we still have the chance
Let’s face the music and dance
***
Soon we’ll be without the moon, humming a different tune and then
There may be teardrops to shed
So while there’s moonlight and music and love and romance
***
Let’s face the music and dance
***
Songwriters: Irving Berlin
