Cole Porter - Red, Hot and Blue Lyrics

Song from "Red, Hot and Blue" - 1936 Broadway Musical
Cole Porter - Red, Hot and Blue Lyrics

Due to the tragic lowness of my brow,
All music that's highbrow,
Gets me upset.
Each time I hear a strain of Stravinsky's
I hurry to Minsky's
And try to forget.
I don't like Schubert's music or Schumann's,
I'm one of those humans
Who only goes in for Berlin or Vincent Youmans;
I'm for the guy that eludes
Bach's sonatas and Chopin's preludes;
So when some nice man I meet,
I always murmur, tout d'suite.

If you want to thrill me and drill me for your crew,
Sing me a melody that's Red, Hot and Blue.
Before you expand on that grand cottage for two,
Sing me a melody that's Red, Hot and Blue.
I can't take Sibelius or Delius,
But I'd swear I'd throw my life away for Calloway.
So when we're all set and I get married to you,
Don't let that violin start playing Lohengrin,
It may be sweet and sin but it's not Red, Hot and Blue.

Cole Porter Songs Lyrics

I Am Loved
Paris Loves Lovers
All of You
You're Just Too, Too
You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To
Something for the Boys
Hey, Good Lookin'
I Love You
Count Your Blessings
From This Moment On
I've Still Got My Health
Let's Be Buddies
Fresh as a Daisy
I'm Throwing a Ball Tonight
Make It Another Old-Fashioned, Please
I've Come To Wive It Wealthily In Padua
I Hate Men
Where Is The Life That Late I Led?
Always True to You In My Fashion
I Am Ashamed That Women Are So Simple
Brush Up Your Shakespeare
You've Got That Thing
The Tale of the Oyster
I Worship You
The Laziest Gal In Town
In the Still of the Night
Looking At You
What Is This Thing Called Love?
They All Fall In Love
You Do Something to Me
Old-Fashioned Garden
I'm In Love Again
Don't Look at Me That Way
Miss Otis Regrets
The Leader of a Big Time Band
Where, Oh, Where
Is It the Girl (Or Is It the Gown)?
I've a Shooting Box in Scotland
So In Love
Red, Hot and Blue
Ridin' High
It's De-Lovely
Down in the Depths (On the 90th Floor)
Let's Misbehave
All Through the Night
I Get a Kick Out Of You
I Love Paris
Anything Goes
Let's Do It, Let's Fall in Love
