(I'm) Always True To You in My Fashion
by  Cole Porter,
from Kiss Me Kate, 1948
rec by Ella Fitzgerald

If a custom tailored vet
Asks me out for something wet
When the vet begins to pet--I cry Hooray.

But I'm always true to you, darlin', in my fashion
Yes, I'm always true to you, darlin', in my way.

I've been asked to have a meal
By a big tycoon in steel,
If the meal includes a deal, accept I may.

There's an oil man known as Tex
Who is keen to give me checks.
And his checks, I fear, means that Tex is here to stay.

From Ohio Mister Thorn
Calls me up from night till morn
Mister Thorn once cornered corn and that ain't hay

From Milwaukee Mister Fritz
Often dines me at the Ritz
Mister Fritz invented schlitz and schlitz must pay

Mister Harris, plutocrat, wants to give my cheek a pat
If the Harris pat means a Paris hat, pay, pay!

It's De-lovely
by  Cole Porter,
From the show Red, Hot and Blue, 1936

I feel a sudden urge to sing 
the kind of ditty that invokes the Spring
So, control your desire to curse 
while I crucify the verse
This verse I've started seems to me 
the "Tin Pan-tithesis" of melody
So to spare you all the pain, 
I'll skip the darn thing and sing the refrain

The night is young, the skies are clear
And if you want to go walkin', dear
It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely

I understand the reason why
You're sentimental, 'cause so am I
It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely

You can tell at a glance 
what a swell night this is for romance
You can hear, dear Mother Nature 
murmuring low "Let yourself go"

So please be sweet, my chickadee
And when I kiss ya, just say to me
"It's delightful, it's delicious, it's delectable, it's delirious,
It's dilemma, it's de limit, it's deluxe, it's de-lovely"
I Love Paris
by Cole Porter, arr by Nelson Riddle
album:  Come Fly With Me, 1958
film:  Can-Can, 1960

[chords? melody?]
Every time i look down 
on this timeless town,
Whether blue or gray be her skies,
Whether loud be her cheers, 
or whether soft  be her tears,
More and more do I realize that...

I love Paris in the spring time
I love Paris in the fall
I love Paris in the summer when it sizzles
I love Paris in the winter when it drizzles

I love Paris every moment
Every moment of the year
I love Paris, why oh why do I love Paris
Because my love is here
