"Isn't It Romantic?" is a popular song and part of the Great American Songbook. The music was composed by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Lorenz Hart. It has a 32-bar chorus in ABAC form. Alec Wilder, in his book American Popular Song: The Great Innovators 1900-1950, calls it "a perfect song". It was introduced by Jeanette MacDonald and Maurice Chevalier in the Paramount film Love Me Tonight (1932). It has since been recorded numerous times, with and without vocals, by many jazz and popular artists. It has also since been featured in a number of movies.

Isn't it romantic?
Music in the night, a dream that can be heard.

Isn't it romantic?
Moving shadows write the oldest magic word.
I hear the breezes playing in the trees above
While all the world is saying you were meant for love.

Isn't it romantic
Merely to be young on such a night as this?

Isn't it romantic?
Every note that's sung is like a lover's kiss.

Sweet symbols in the moonlight,
Do you mean that I will fall in love perchance?
Isn't it romance?

Sweet symbols in the moonlight,
Do you mean that I will fall in love perchance?
Isn't it romantic?
Isn't it romance?
