Song Lyric Sunday. Animals.

Jim Adams, aka Newwpicauthor, has decided that this week’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY will be Animal.

Well I struggled with this prompt. Being late to the party the first to mind would be already used. Then I remembered Let’s Do It. The 1920’s Cole Porter standard. I chose the Alanis Morissette version.

I do love this version I hope you do too.

Let’s Do It (Let’s Fall In Love)”

Lyrics. Cole Porter

Birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

In Spain, the best upper sets do it
Lithuanians and Letts do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

The Dutch in old Amsterdam do it
Not to mention the Finns
Folks in Siam do it – think of Siamese twins

Some Argentines without means do it
People say in Boston even beans do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Romantic sponges, they say, do it
Oysters down in Oyster Bay do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Cold Cape Cod clams, ‘gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Electric eels, I might add, do it
Though it shocks ’em I know
Why ask if shad do it? Waiter, bring me shad roe!

In shallow shoals, English soles do it
Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

In old Japan, all the Japs do it
Up in Lapland little Laps do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

The chimpanzees in the zoos do it
Some courageous kangaroos do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

I’m sure giraffes on the sly do it
Even eagles as they fly do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Electric eels, I might add, do it
Though it shocks ’em I know
Why ask if shad do it? Garçon, de shad roe!

The world admits bears in pits do it
Even Pekingeses at the Ritz do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

The royal set sans regret did it
And they considered it fun
Marie Antoinette did it –
With or without Napoleon

Lyrics from A to Z Lyrics.

    I was not sure what Shad Roe was, so I looked it up. The arrival of shad roe is our reminder that tulips and longer days are right around the corner. It is a delicacy from the herring family that is found on the east coast just as soon as the weather starts to turn for the better. Nice song, I really enjoyed it.
