About He Loves and She Loves
George and Ira Gershwin wrote “He Loves and She Loves” for the 1927 Broadway musical Funny Face, which starred Fred and Adele Astaire. This song was used in the 1957 movie of the same name, which starred Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn. Other than the title and handful of the original songs, the film and the musical bear no resemblance to each other.

Lyrics

Now that I have found you
I must hang around you.
Though you may refuse me,
You will never lose me.
If the human race is
Full of happy faces
It’s because they all love
That wonderous thing they call love.

He loves and she loves,
And they love
So why can’t you love
And I love too?
Birds love and bees love
And whispering trees love,
And that’s what we both should do.

I always knew someday you’d come along,
We’ll make a twosome that just can’t go wrong,
Hear me he loves and she loves
And they love so why can’t
You love as I love you?
