WHY SHOULDN'T I? From the Broadway Show "Jubilee" (1935) (Music & Lyrics by Cole Porter) Margaret Adams (Broadway Production) - 1935 Frank Sinatra - 1945 Tommy Dorsey & His Orch. - 1948 Tony Perkins - 1957 Jeri Southern - 1959 Nancy Wright - 1960 Joanie Summers - 1962 Rosemary Clooney - 1963 Lee Wiley - 1971 Also recorded by: Mary Martin; Anita O'Day; Betty Roché; Jaye P. Morgan; Chris Connor; Teddy Wilson; Bobby Short; Paul Desmond; Django Reinhardt......and others. All my life I've been so secluded Love has eluded me But from knowing second hand what I do of it I feel certain I could stand a closer view of it Why shouldn't I take a chance when romance passes by? Why shouldn't I know of love? Why wait around when each age has a sage who has found That upon this earth love is all that is really worth thinking of? It must be fun, lots of fun To be sure when day is done That the hour is coming when you'll be kissed And then you'll be kissed again All debutantes say it's good And every star out in far Hollywood Seems to give it a try So why shouldn't I? All debutantes say it's good And every star out in far Hollywood Seems to give it a try So why shouldn't I? (Contributed by Peter Akers - December 2010)
