Song lyrics to Tra-la-la (This Time It’s Really Love) Music by George Gershwin, Lyrics by Ira Gershwin, performed by Gene Kelly and Oscar Levant in An American in Paris

Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly):
This time it’s really love
Tra-la-la-la
I’m in that blue above
Tra-la-la-la
She fills me full of joy
Tell me, papa.
Am I not a lucky guy?
Just listen to my heart
Go pitter-patter
It’s started from the start
I’ve fallen like that [snap!]
Humming, strumming, singing, drumming
What a thrill
I’m getting from it all
La-la-la
La-la-la
This time it’s really love!

Adam Cook (Oscar Levant):
To me you’re fu-full of bla-bla-bla-bla!

Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly):
I’ve got the grandest love,
Dit moi, papa!

Adam Cook (Oscar Levant):
Cherchez la femme toujours.
Ooh-la-la! Oui!

Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly):
She’s got but ev’rything-

Adam Cook (Oscar Levant):
Is there a dowry?

Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly):
She’s like a breath of spring-

Adam Cook (Oscar Levant):
Wow, you’ll be sowry!

Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly):
Humming, strumming, singing, drumming.

Adam Cook (Oscar Levant):
Nothing good to happen from the start!

Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly) and Adam Cook (Oscar Levant):
Tra-la-la-la
La-la-la

Adam Cook (Oscar Levant):
[Speaking]
Look, one hand!

Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly) and Adam Cook (Oscar Levant):
[Singing]
What a thrill
I’m getting from it all
Tra-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la!
