Zitate Cole Porter

„In olden days a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking
But now, Heaven knows,
Anything goes.“

—  Cole Porter

Anything goes", but the most common renditions are done with "Heaven knows"

„So kiss me Kate,
Thou lovely loon,
E'er we start on our honeymoon.“

For now thou shall ever be mine.

„It must be fun to be you
And play with love as you do“

"It Must Be Fun To Be You"
Mexican Hayride (1944)
Kontext: It must be fun to be you
And play with love as you do
To treat each new romance
As merely one more dance
Or just another book to glance through
It must be fun to acquire
Whatever heart you desire,
And when you're bored with it
To tear it in two,
It must be fun to be you.

„Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don't fence me in“

—  Cole Porter

"Don't Fence Me In" (1934) written for a never-released film Adios, Argentina, later used in the film Hollywood Canteen (1944).
Kontext: Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies above.
Don't fence me in. Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don't fence me in Let me be by myself in the evenin' breeze
And listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don't fence me in

„What is this thing called love?
This funny thing called love?“

Send me off forever but I ask you please
Don't fence me in

Be a clown, be a clown, be a clown.
