“I Got Rhythm” | An American In Paris The Musical | Broadway’s Best | Great Performances on PBS


[Music Playing and Singing]: “Days can be
sunny, with never a sigh-” “Sigh!” “Sigh! Don’t need what money can buy. Can we light up the accompaniment?” “No, we can not.” “Birds in the trees sing their days full of
song, why shouldn’t we sing along? It’s like a funeral.” “Kinda gloomy.” “I’m chipper all the day, happy with my lot
– Happy? It doesn’t sound that way.” “How did I get that way? Something, something-something…” “I got rhythm. I got music. No, no no no. I got my gal, who could ask for anything more! It’s better in 4/4.” “It is!” “I got daisies in green pastures. I got my gal, who could ask for anything more?” “That’s great!” “Old man trouble, I don’t mind him. You won’t find him ’round my door! I got starlight. I got sweet dreams – stop it – I got my gal,
who could ask for anything more? Who could ask for anything more!” “Look, look at their faces. People need to laugh. Paris needs it.” “Who says music needs to cheer people up?” “I say it!” “Oh, it’s too easy to go for sentiment. God forbid we show the real world – war, starvation,
there’s uh, there’s unemployment!” “Old man trouble, I don’t mind him. You won’t find him ’round my door! I got starlight. I got sweet dreams.” “Yeah, sell outs!” “I got my gal, who could ask for anything
more? Who could ask for anything more!” “I got rhythm. I got music. I got my gal, who could ask for anything more. I got daisies in green pastures. I got my gal, who could ask for anything more?”
