COLE PORTER: Happy 133rd for Lucky Us!
Posted by: RonnieWeho 05:27 pm EDT 06/09/24

One of the greatest songwriters EVER! As he said: "If you can you imagine it taking TWO men to write one song."

I get no kick in a plane
Flying too high with some guy in the sky is my i-dea of nothing to do
Yet I get a kick out of you.

But if this ditty is not so pretty
At least it'll tell you
How great you are
You're the top!
You're the Coliseum
You're the top!
You're the Louvre Museum
You're a melody from a symphony by Strauss
You're a Bendel bonnet
A Shakespeare's sonnet
You're Mickey Mouse
You're the Nile
You're the Tower of Pisa
You're the smile on the Mona Lisa
I'm a worthless check, a total wreck, a flop
But if, baby, I'm the bottom, you're the top!
I could easily go on and on and on: I've got you deep in the heart of me; Now, heaven knows, anything goes; what moments sublime, what rapture serene...

Etcetera, etc.
