Cole Porter - Looking At You Lyrics

Song from "Wake Up and Dream" - 1929 Broadway Musical
Cole Porter - Looking At You Lyrics

I've gone afar, collecting objets d'art
I know the whole game by heart
Why, Joe Duveen
Will tell you what I mean
'Twas I who gave him his start
But since I looked, dear, in your direction
I've quite forgotten my art collection
To be exact
You simply prove the fact
That nature's greater than art

Looking at you
While troubles are fleeing
I'm admiring the view
'Cause it's you I'm seeing
And the sweet honeydew
Of well-being
Settles upon me

What is this light
That shines when you enter
Like a star in the night?
And what's to prevent her
From destroying my sight
When you center
All of it on me?

Looking at you
I'm filled with the essence of
The quintessence of
Looking at you
I hear poets tellin' of
Lovely Helen of

Darling, my life was gray
I wanted to end it
Till that wonderful day
When you came to mend it
And if you'll only stay
Then I'll spend it
Looking at you

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
