Lyrics and Music: Cole Porter
Additional lyrics: Noa (Achinoam Nini)
In olden days a glimpse of stocking
was looked at as something shocking, now heaven knows..
Good authors too, who once knew better words,
Now only use four letter words writing prose…
If driving fast cars you like
If low bars you like
If old hymns you like
If bare limbs you like
If Mae West you like
Or me undressed you like,
Well, nobody gonna oppose!
So though I’m not a great romancer,
I know that you’re bound to answer when I propose
(oooo, my Corona..my Corona growing inside of me…)
The world has gone mad today,
And good’s bad today
And black’s white today
And wrong’s right today
And that gent today
You gave a cent today
Once had several chateaus.
When folks whose aches are not fake see
Multi millionaires ask for tax breaks and free “I owes”..
If red-haired T who, lies and blunders
Whose brain is in constant slumbers
Pretends he knows..
If Blue haired B, who’s far form dumb
Goes and uses old T to run
From his courtroom woes
Just think of those shocks you’ve got
And those knocks you’ve got
And those blues you’ve got
From those news you’ve got
And those pains you’ve got
If any brains you’ve got
From those silly TV shows…
So think again, it’s not infectious,
Think of those things connecting us, friends and foes..
