– Too Darn Hot –
by Cole Porter
from Kiss Me Kate, 1948

It's too darn hot,
It's too darn hot.
I'd like to sup with my baby tonight,
Refill the cup with my baby tonight.
I'd like to sup with my baby tonight,
Fill the cup with my baby tonight,
But I ain't up to my baby tonight,
'Cause it's too darn hot.

It's too darn hot,
It's too darn hot.
I'd like to coo with my baby tonight,
And pitch the woo with my baby tonight.
I'd like to coo with my baby tonight,
And pitch the woo with my baby tonight.
But brother you'll fight my baby tonight
'Cause it's too darn hot.

According to the Kinsey Report
Ev'ry average man you know
Much prefers his lovey-dovey to court
When the temperature is low,
But when the thermometer goes 'way up
And the weather is sizzling hot,
Mister Pants-for-romance is not,
'Cause it's too, too, too darn hot,
It's too darn hot,
It's too too darn hot.

{repeat from "I'd like to coo,"
replacing the last four lines with:}
Mister gob, for his squab,
A marine, for his queen,
A G.I, for his cutypie
is not,
'Cause it's too, too, too darn hot,
It's too darn hot,
It's too darn hot.

It's too darn hot,
It's too darn hot,
It's too    darn     hot


– Don't Fence Me In –
by Cole Porter
From the film: Hollywood Canteen (1944)

Wildcat Kelley, lookin' mighty pale,
Was standin' by the sherrif's side
And when the sherrif said,
"I'm sendin you to jail,
Wildcat raised his head and cried

{Refrain:}
Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above,
Don't fence me in.
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love,
Don't fence me in.
Let me be by myself in the evenin' breeze,
listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees,
Send me off forever but I ask you please,
Don't fence me in.

Just turn me loose, let me straddle my old saddle
Underneath the western skies.
On my Cayuse, let me wander over yonder
'Til I see the mountains rise.

I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences
gaze at the moon 'til I lose my senses
I can't look at hobbles and I can't stand fences
Don't fence me in.

Wildcat Kelley, back again in town,
was standin by his sweetheart's side,
And when his sweetheart said,
"come on let's settle down,
Wildcat raised his head and cried

{Refrain:}
