Let's Do It Lyrics Billie Holiday

Billie Holiday - Let's Do It Songtext

(Cole Porter)

Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it. Let's do it, let's fall in
love!
In Spain the best upper sets do it, Lithuanians and Letts do it. Let's do it,
let's fall in love!
The nightingales in the dark do it, larks, crazy of a lark do it. Let's do it!
Let's fall in love!
The most sedate barnyard fowl do it, when a chanticleer cries, high-browed owls
do it; they're supposed to be wise.
Penguins in flocks on the rocks do it. Even little cuckoos in their clocks 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!
Romantic sponges, they say, do it, oysters down in Oyster Bay do it. Let's do
it, let's fall in love!
Cold Cape Cod clams against 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 them I know. Why ask if shad
do it? Waiter, bring me shad-roe.
In shallow shoals, English soles to do, goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it,
let's do it, let's fall in love!

The dragonflies in the reed do it, sentimental centipedes do it. Let's do it,
let's fall in love!
Mosquitoes, heaven forbid, do it. So does every katydid do it. Let's do it,
let's fall in love!
The most refined ladybugs do it when a gentleman calls. .Moths in your rugs do
it, what's the use of mothballs?
Locusts in the trees do it, bees do it, even over-educated fleas do it. Let's
do it, let's fall in love!
The chimpanzees in zoos do it, some courageous kangaroos do it. Let's do it,
let's fall in love!
I'm sure giraffes on the shy do it. Heavy hippopotami do it. Let's do it, let's
fall in love!
Old sloths who hang down from twigs do it, though the effort is great. Sweet
guinea pigs do it, buy a couple and wait.
The world admits bears in pits do it, even Pekineses at the Ritz do it. Let's
do it, let's fall in love!
Alternate:
Young whelks and winkies in pubs do it. Little sponges in their tubs do it.
Let's do it, let's fall in love!
Cold salmon quite against their wish do it. Even lazy jellyfish do it. Let's
do it, let's fall in love!
Though most select schools of cod do it, though it shocks them, I fear.
In shady shoals, English soles do it, goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it.
Let's do it, let's fall in love!
