About Little One

"Little One" is a song written by Cole Porter for the 1956 film High Society, where it was introduced by Bing Crosby. Sol C. Siegel, the producer of the film High Society, paid Cole Porter $250,000 for his first original film score in eight years. Besides Louis Armstrong, the cast included Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly and Celeste Holm. In the film, Crosby (playing a songwriter) is asked by the young sister of the Grace Kelly character to write a song for her and "Little One" is made up on the spot and sung by Crosby.

Little one I was so gloomy
Felt that life sure would undo me
till one day you happened to me
My little one

Little one no controversy
You're my downfall you're my Circe
I'm a good guy show me mercy
My little one
I have such love for you
Our future could be
Heaven above for you
And paradise for me
Little one fate might miscarry
Little one why do you tarry?
Little one when may I marry you
My little one?

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 »
