"Blah, Blah, Blah" is a 1931 song with music by George Gershwin, to lyrics by Ira Gershwin.[1] Originally written for the abortive East is West[2] it was taken "out of the trunk" by the Gershwins for Delicious (1931 film).[3] It was later used in the 2012 Broadway production of "Nice Work if You Can Get it", a compilation of Gershwin songs.

It goes in part:[4]

Blah, Blah, Blah, blah moon, Blah, Blah, Blah above. Blah, Blah, Blah, blah croon, Blah, Blah, Blah, blah love."
