IT'S DE-LOVELY From : Anything Goes Cole Porter (BILLY) The night is young, the skies are clear So if you want to go walking, dear, It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely. I understand the reason why You're sentimental, 'cause so am I, It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely. You can tell at a glance What a swell night this is for romance, You can hear dear Mother Nature Murmuring low, "Let yourself go!" So please be sweet, my chickadee, And when I kiss you, just say to me, "It's delightful, it's delicious, It's delectable, it's delirious, It's dilemma, it's delimit, it's deluxe, It's de-lovely". (HOPE) I feel a sudden urge to sing The kind of ditty that invokes the spring. (BILLY) I'll control my desire to curse While you crucify the verse. (HOPE) This verse I started seems to me The Tin-Pantithesis of a melody, (BILLY) So spare us all the pain, Just skip the darn thing and sing the refrain... (HOPE) Mi, mi, mi, mi, Re, re, re, re, Do, sol, mi, do, la, si. The night is young, the skies are clear So if you want to go walking, dear, It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely. I understand the reason why You're sentimental, 'cause so am I, It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely. You can tell at a glance What a swell night this is for romance, You can hear dear Mother Nature Murmuring low, "Let yourself go!" (BILLY) So please be sweet, my chickadee, And when I kiss you, just say to me, "It's delightful, it's delicious, It's...It's de-lovely". ****** as rec by Frances Day w The London Hippodrome Orch cond by Geraldo Sep 7th 1938 London I've got the sudden urge to sing The kind of ditty that invokes the Spring, So curb your emotions to curse While I crucify the verse! The verse I've started seems to me The tin pan thesis of melody, So to spare you any pain I'll skip the darned thing and sing the refrain! Doh-doh-doh-doh-doh! Rae-rae-rae-rae-rae! Oh, take it away! The night is young, the moon is clear, And if you'd like to go walking dear, It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely! I understand the reason why You're sentimental, 'cause so am I, It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely! You can see at a glance What a swell night this is for romance, You can hear dear Mother Nature whispering low, "Let yourself go!" So please be sweet, my chickadee, And when I kiss you just say to me, "It's delightful, it's delicious, it's delirious, it's delectable, It's dilemma, de-limit, deluxe, de top, it's de-lovely!". Time marches on, and soon it's plain You won my heart and I've lost my brain, It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely! Life seems so sweet and we decide It's in the bag, we'll get unified, It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely! See the crowd in the church, See the proud parson up on his perch, Get the sweet beat of that organ breathing our doom, Here goes the groom! And how they cheer, and how they smile, As we go galloping down the aisle, It's delightful, it's delicious, it's delirious, it's delectable, It's dilemma, de-limit, deluxe, de top, it's de-lovely!".
