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).

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!
