About Too Darn Hot

"Too Darn Hot" is a song written by Cole Porter for his musical Kiss Me, Kate (1948). In the stage version, it is sung at the start of Act 2, and in the 1948 original Broadway production, it was sung by Lorenzo Fuller (as Paul) and Eddie Sledge and Fred Davis (as the specialty dancers), leading the full company. In the 1953 MGM Hollywood film version, it is moved to a much earlier point, and it is sung by Ann Miller (as Lois Lane, Fred's new girlfriend, who is cast as Bianca). The song does not contribute to the plot in either the stage or film versions (according to general opinion); in the stage version, the song represents the company of The Taming of the Shrew taking a break offstage during the intermission of their play; in the film version it allowed the audience to see Lois's fun-loving, risk-taking nature, and gave Ann Miller a chance to show off her dancing skills, specifically tap. The line 'According to the Kinsey report' (in the original stage production) was changed in the film version to 'According to the latest report'. The song has also been covered by many artists.

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

I'd like to sup with my baby tonight
And play the pup with my baby tonight
I'd like to sup with my baby tonight
And play the pup 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 stop for my baby tonight
And blow my top with my baby tonight
I'd like to stop with my baby tonight
And blow my top with my baby tonight
But I'd be a flop with my baby tonight
'Cause it's too darn hot, 
It's too darn hot
It's too darn hot

I'd like to fool with my baby tonight
Break ev'ry rule with my baby tonight
I'd like to fool with my baby tonight
Break ev'ry rule with my baby tonight
But pillow you'll be my baby tonight
'Cause it's too darn hot
It's too darn hot

According to the Kinsey report
Every average man you know
Much prefers to play his favorite sport
When the temperature is low
But when the thermometer goes way up
And the weather is sizzling hot
Mister Adam for his madam is not
'Cause it's too too
It's too darn hot, it's too darn hot
It's too too too too darn hot

I'd like to call on my baby tongiht
And give my all to my baby tonight
I'd like to call on my baby tongiht
And give my all to my baby tonight
But I can't play ball with my baby tonight
Cause it's too darn hot
It's too darn hot

I'd like to meet with my baby tonight
Get off my feet with my baby tonight
I'd like to meet with my baby tonight
Get off my feet with my baby tonight
But no repeat with my baby tonight
'Cause it's too darn hot
It's too darn hot

I'd like to coo with my baby tonight
And pitch some woo with my baby tonight
I'd like to coo with my baby tonight
And pitch some woo with my baby tonight
But sister you fight my baby tonight
'Cause it's too darn hot
It's too darn hot

According to the Kinsey report
Every average man you know
Much prefers to play his favorite sport
When the temperature is low
But when the thermometer goes way up
And the weather is sizzling hot
Mister GOB for his squab, 
A marine for his queen
A G.I. for his cutie-pie is not
Cause it's too too too darn hot
It's too darn hot
It's too darn hot

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 »
