Anything Goes-Cole Porter

The song is too clever by half, it moves to quickly, it has awkward rhymes, its not nearly as sophisticated as it thinks it is, but when you hear a really good reading (Ella Fitzgerald right now), you feel like wearing a bespoke suit and drinking a cold g&t, which is really a pain in the ass, b/c when the whiplash comes, you may spill yr drink-which really is a sin.

and while i’m here, a recent bio has discovered a lost verse, which i really wish was restored :
You’re the burning heat of a bridal suite in use
Youre the breasts of Venus
Youre King Kongs Penis
Youre Self Abuse
