From the recording The Nearness of You
A Foggy Day (in London Town) is a popular song composed by George Gershwin, with lyrics by Ira Gershwin, introduced by Fred Astaire in the 1937 film A Damsel in Distress.
It was originally titled "A Foggy Day (In London Town)" in reference to the pollution-induced pea soup fogs that were common in London during that period, and is often still referred to by the full title.
A foggy day in London Town
Had me low and had me down
I viewed the morning with such alarm
British Museum had lost its charm
How long, I wondered, could this thing last?
But the age of miracles hadn't passed
For, suddenly, I saw you there
And through foggy London Town
the sun was shining everywhere
Songwriters: George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin
