I'VE COME TO WIVE IT WEALTHILY IN PADUA from 1953 film "Kiss Me Kate" (Cole Porter 1948) Howard Keel and the MGM Studio Chorus with the MGM Studio Orchestra conducted by Andre Previn I've come to wive it wealthily in Padua, If wealthily then happily in Padua. If my wife has a bag of gold, Do I care if the bag be old? I've come to wive it wealthily in Padua, (He's come to wive it wealthily in Padua) I heard you mutter, "Zounds, a loathsome lad you are!". I shall not be disturbed one bit If she be but a quarter wit, If she can only talk of clothes While she powders her doggone nose! I've come to wive it wealthily in Padua, (He's come to wive it wealthily in Padua) I've heard you say, "Gadzooks, completely mad you are!". Wouldn't give me the slightest shock If her knees now and then should knock, If her eyes were a wee bit crossed, Were she wearing the hair sh'ed lost! Still a damsel I'll make my dame, In a brawl they are all the same! I've come to wive it wealthily in Padua, (He's come to wive it wealthily in Padua) I heard you say, "Good gad, but what a cad you are!". Do I mind if she fret and fuss, If she fume like Vesuvius? If she roar like a Winter breeze On a rough Adriatic seas? If she screams like a teething brat, If she scratch like a tiger cat, If she fight like a raging boar, I have oft met a boar before! I've come to wive it wealthily in Padua. (With a hunny nunny nunny and a hey hey hey!) Not to mention money money for a rainy day! I've come to wive it wealthily in Padua!
