Kiss Me, Kate - I Hate Men Lyrics

2019 Broadway revival
Kiss Me Kate the Musical - I Hate Men Lyrics

"I Hate Men" was written by Cole Porter, performed by Kelli O'Hara (Lilli Vanessi/Katharine).

I hate men.
I can't abide 'em even now and then.
Than ever marry one of them,
I'd rest a virgin rather,
For husbands are a boring lot and only give you bother.
Of course,
I'm awfully glad that Mother had to marry Father,
But I hate men.
Of all the types I've ever met within our democracy,
I hate most the athlete with his manner bold and brassy,
He may have hair upon his chest but,
Sister, so has Lassie.
Oh, I hate men!
I hate men.
Their worth upon this earth I dinna ken.
Avoid the trav'ling salesman though a tempting
Tom he may be,
From China he will bring you jade and perfume from Araby,
But don't forget 'tis he who'll have the fun and thee the baby,
Oh I hate men.
If thou shouldst wed a businessman,
Be wary, oh, be wary.
He'll tell you he's detained in town on business necessary,
His bus'ness is the bus'ness which he gives his secretary,
Oh I hate men!

Kiss Me Kate the Musical Lyrics

Another Op'nin', Another Show
Why Can't You Behave?
So in Love
We Open in Venice
Tom, Dick or Harry
I've Come to Wive it Wealthily in Padua
I Hate Men
Were Thine That Special Face
We Sing of Love (Cantiamo D'Amore)
Kiss Me, Kate
Too Darn Hot
Where is the Life That Late I Led?
Always True to You in My Fashion
From This Moment On
So in Love (Reprise)
Brush Up Your Shakespeare
I Am Ashamed That People Are So Simple
