About Let's Misbehave

"Let's Misbehave" is a song written by Cole Porter in 1927, originally intended for the female lead of his first major production, Paris. It was discarded before the Broadway opening in favor of "Let's Do It, Let's Fall in Love". However, the star of the Broadway production, Irene Bordoni, performed it for a phonograph recording which was labelled as being from the production of Paris. The song was a notable 1928 hit for Irving Aaronson and his Commanders. It was included perhaps most infamously in the 1962 revival of Anything Goes. The song was recorded in 1927 for the Brunswick label, by Banjo Buddy (a.k.a. Harold Sandelman).

We're all alone, no chaperone
Can get our number
The world's in slumber
Let's misbehave

There's something wild about you child
That's so contagious
Let's be outrageous
Let's misbehave

When Adam won Eve's hand
He wouldn't stand for teasin'
He didn't care about those apples out of season

They say the Spring 
Means just one thing to little lovebirds
We're not above birds
Let's misbehave

Let's misbehave
Let's misbehave

If you'd be just so sweet
And only meet your fate, dear
It would be the great event of 1928, dear

Let's misbehave
Let's misbehave

Cole Porter

Cole Albert Porter (June 9, 1891 – October 15, 1964) was an American composer and songwriter. Born to a wealthy family in Indiana, he defied the wishes of his domineering grandfather and took up music as a profession. Classically trained, he was drawn towards musical theatre. After a slow start, he began to achieve success in the 1920s, and by the 1930s he was one of the major songwriters for the Broadway musical stage. Unlike most successful Broadway composers, Porter wrote both the lyrics and the music for his songs. more »
