"They Can't Take That Away from Me" as written by Ira Gershwin and George Gershwin....
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, 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 from me

We may never, never meet again on that bumpy road to love
But I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
No, they can't take that away from me

    General CommentThis is a song about a woman that remembers the love of her life in ways so simple and it was those simple things that made her fall in love. They were forbidden to see each other, so in fact they were taken away from each other in some aspect. I view it as a woman being told the man she loved wasn't good enough for her and being told she couldn't be with him. However she will never forget him and in her heart he will always be the one.
