I Get a Kick Out of You

Lyrics ,Music:Cole Porter

The song was publishe 1934.

Fortunately Cole Porter didn’t toss his rejects into a waste basket.
“I Get a Kick Out of You” was originally written for a 1931 Broadway show,
Star Dust, which was never produced.
The song made it into Cole’s Broadway show Anything Goes in 1934
where it was introduced by Ethel Merman.
The show ran for 420 performances, opening in November, 1934,
and closing in November, 1935.
Musical theater historian Robert Kimball has called the show
“the quintessential musical of the period.”
It also produced the hits “All Through the Night,” “You’re the Top,”
and, of course, “Anything Goes.”

Anything Goes

My story is much too sad to be told,
But practically everything leaves me totally cold.
The exception I know is the case
When I'm out on a quiet spree,
Fighting vainly the old ennui,
And 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, they may go for cocaine.
I'm sure that if I took even one sniff
It would bore me terrifically, too.
Yet I get a kick out of you.

I get a kick every time I see
You standing ther 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.
Yet I get a kick - um you give me a boot - I get a kick out of you.
