I Get a Kick Out of You

Writer(s): Cole Porter

My story is much to sad to be told
But practically everything leaves me totally cold
The only exception I know is the case
When I’m out on a quiet spree, fighting vainly the old ennui
Then I suddenly turn and see… your fabulous face
I get no kick from champagne, mere alcohol doesn’t thrill me at all
So tell me why should it be true that I get a kick out of you
Some like the perfume from Spain, I’m sure that if I took even one sniff
It would bore me terrifically too, but I get a kick out of you
( Some like the bop-type refrain )
( I’m sure that if, I heard even one riff )
( It would bore me terrifically too )
( But I get a kick out of you )
( Some they may go for cocaine )
( I’m sure that if, I took even one sniff )
( It would bore me terrifically too )
( But I get a kick out of you )
I get a kick every time I see you standing there before me
I get a kick though it’s clear to see, you obviously do not adore me
I get no kick in a plane, flying too high with some gal in the sky
Is my idea of nothing to do, but I get a kick out of you
