The old song "Life is just a bowl of cherries" somehow got stuck in my head today so I looked up the lyrics and saw that it was credited to George Gershwin. I thought the song was not likely to have been written by the same man who composed "Rhapsody In Blue"and it turns out that Gershwin, who was not a lyricist, did not write the song. Gershwin died at the young age of 38, from a brain tumor. It is amazing that he had such a large body of work.
