"Blah, Blah, Blah" is a 1931 song with music by George Gershwin, to lyrics by Ira Gershwin. Originally written for the abortive East is West it was taken "out of the trunk" by the Gershwins for Delicious (1931 film). 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:
Blah, Blah, Blah, blah moon, Blah, Blah, Blah above. Blah, Blah, Blah, blah croon, Blah, Blah, Blah, blah love."
