WE OPEN IN VENICE from "Kiss Me Kate" 1948 musical New York 1953 film Cole Porter 1948 Kathryn Grayson, Howard Keel, Ann Miller & Tommy Rall with The MGM Studio Orchestra conducted by Andre Previn (film soundtrack) A troup of strolling players are se, Shakespearean portrayers are we; We're just a simple band Who roams about the land, Dispensing fol-de-rol frivolity. We're folk who give distractions are we, A theatre guild attraction are we; We're just a crazy group That never seems to stoop Around the map of little Italy. We open in Venice, We next play Verona, Then on to Cremona, Got some laughs in Cremona! Our next stop is Parma, That stingy dingy menace! Then Madua, Then Padua, Then we open again, where? We open in Venice, We next play Verona, Then on to Cremona, That's a quail in Cremona! Our next stop is Parma, That stingy dingy menace! Then Madua, Then Padua, Then we open again, where? In here!
