There may be trouble ahead........

No,  not breaking news - as far as I am aware - but time for a complete contrast - some 1930s nostalgia.
I had no idea until recently that this Irving Berlin song was born out of the economic recession of the pre-World War II  period; the darker undercurrents are certainly there.
Given our present problems (& I suppose you could extend the context a little to include the non-financial) it seemed somehow appropriate.
This is the original version - hisses and crackles included....... sung by Fred Astaire
