About I've Got My Eyes on You

"I've Got My Eyes on You" is a popular song by Cole Porter, published in 1939 and written for the Hollywood musical film Broadway Melody of 1940 where it was introduced by Fred Astaire. Later that year, it was included in Andy Hardy's Private Secretary (1940) where it was sung by Kathryn Grayson. The song is also played as background music by a band in the 1956 musical High Society, starring Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly and it used in the 1940 comedy "The Philadelphia Story", starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant when it was played at the party the night before the wedding. The song has since been recorded by a number of artists, including by Patti Page (for her album In the Land of Hi-Fi - 1956), Fred Astaire for his album The Astaire Story (1952) and by Dianne Reeves (in 2005) for the Grammy Award-winning soundtrack to Good Night, and Good Luck.

I've got my eyes on you,
So best beware where you roam.
I've got my eyes on you,
So don't stray too far from home.
Incidentally
I've set my spies on you,
I'm checking all you do
From a to zee.
So, darling, just be wise,
Keep your eyes on me.

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 »
