Noël Coward

Sir Noël Peirce Coward (16 December 1899 – 26 March 1973) was an English playwright, composer, director, actor and singer, known for his wit, flamboyance, and what Time magazine called "a sense of personal style, a combination of cheek and chic, pose and poise". more »

Mr. Irving Berlin
 Often emphasizes sin
 In a charming way.
 Mr. Coward we know
 Wrote a song or two to show
 Sex was here to stay.
 Richard Rodgers it's true
 Took a more romantic view
 Of this sly biological urge.
 But it really was Cole
 Who contrived to make the whole
 Thing merge.

 Refrain 1
 He said the Belgians and Greeks do it
 Nice young men who sell antiques do it,
 Let's do it, let's fall in love.
 Monkeys whenever you look do it,
 Aly Khan and King Farouk do it, 
Let's do it, let's fall in love.
 Louella Parsons can't quite do it,
 For she's so highly strung,
 Marlene might do it,
 But she looks far too young.
 Each man out there shooting crap does it,
 Davy Crockett in that dreadful cap does it,
 Let's do it, let's fall in love.

 Refrain 2
 Our famous writers in swarms do it,
 Somerset and all the Maughams do it,
 Let's do it, let's fall in love.
 The Brontes felt that they must do it,
 Ernest Hemingway could-just-do it,
 Let's do it, let's fall in love.
 E. Allan Poe-ho! Ho! Ho!-did it,
 But he did it in verse.
 H. Beecher Stowe did it,
 But she had to rehearse.
 Tennessee Williams self-taught does it, 
Kinsey with a deafening report does it.
 Let's do it, let's fall in love.

 Verse 2
 In the Spring of the year
 Inhibitions disappear 
And our hearts beat high,
 We had better face facts
 Every gland that overacts
 Has an alibi
 For each bird and each bee,
 Each slap-happy sappy tree,
 Each temptation that lures us along
 Is just Nature elle-meme 
Merely singing us the same
 Old song.

 Refrain 3
 In Texas some of the men do it
 Others drill a hole-and then do it,
 Let's do it, let's fall in love
 West Point cadets forming fours do it,
 People say all those Gabors do it,
 Let's do it, let's fall in love.
 My kith and kin, more or less, do it,
 Every uncle and aunt,
 But I confess to it-
 I've one cousin that can't.
 Teenagers squeezed into jeans do it,
 Probably we'll live to see machines do it,
 Let's do it, let's fall in love.

 Refrain 4
 Each baby bat after dark does it,
 In the desert Wilbur Clark does it
 Let's do it, let's fall in love.
 We're told that every hormone does it,
 Victor Borge all alone does it,
 Let's do it, let's fall in love.
 Each tiny clam you consume does it,
 Even Liberace-we assume-does it,
 Let's do it, let's fall in love!
