Let’s Do It

Writer(s): Cole Porter

Why even in France the best upper sets do it, Lithuanians and Letts 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 Dutch in old Amsterdam do it, not to mention the Finns
Folks in Siam do it – think of Siamese twins
In shallow shoals English souls do it, goldfish in the privacy of bowls 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 – garcon 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
Parliament pleasure bent did it, mam’selles every time their short of rent did it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love
