Cole Porter - Is It the Girl (Or Is It the Gown)? Lyrics

Song from "Seven Lively Arts" - 1944 Broadway Musical
Cole Porter - Is It the Girl (Or Is It the Gown)? Lyrics

Mister Romeo,
Say you’re at some show
But each girl so far
Has been under par
When, lo and behold, stage center,
You see a perfect Juliet enter.
She so drives you mad
That you wish you had
Just a cottage cool
By a swimming pool
With her waiting there for Daddy.
Well, before you grow fonder,
Stop and ponder, laddie.

Is it the girl or is it the gown?
Which one of the two do you love?
Is it her hair you long to caress
Or is it that exquisite dress?
Is she the dream of all you desire
Or is it her frock
That happens to knock you down?
Is it the girl you love so dearly
Or is it merely her beautiful gown?

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
