The score includes swing and other contemporary rhythms of the 1930s. The show was the first musical based on a Shakespeare play.


Falling in love with love
Is falling for make believe.
Falling in love with love
Is playing the fool;
Caring too much is such a juvenile fancy.
Learning to trust is just
For children in school.
I fell in love with love one night
When the moon was full,
I was unwise with eyes
Unable to see.
I fell in love with love,
With love everlasting,
But love fell out with me.
-Falling in Love with Love
Words by: Lorenz Hart Music by: Richard Rodgers
