Since I gave you the Genius of Chava Flores, now I give you the Genius of Cole Porter.

I have loved Cole Porter songs since before I knew who wrote them... they are just very very clever words... I give you, below, the lyrics to one of many fabulous Cole Porter songs, and if you vote this post up enough, I will write more posts like this one with other favorite Cole Porter.

Here, I give you the lyrics and below, the video from the fabulous movie "DeLovely".

Listen to the video as you read the words:

"Let's Do It... Let's Fall in Love"

In Spain the best upper sets do it
Lithuanians and Laps 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

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

The dragon flies in the wreathes do it
Sentimental centipedes do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love.

Mosquitos (heaven forbid) do it
So does every katy kin do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

The most refined lady bugs do it
When a gentleman calls

Moths in your rugs do it
What's the use of moth balls?

low gusts in trees do it
bees do it
even overeducated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Let's do it, let's fall in love
Let's do it, let's fall in love!
