Too Darn Hot

You know how it is … it’s been hot … the temperatures shot up into the 90s and when it gets SO hot, well, it’s TOO hot to do ANYTHING!

Cole Porter wrote the lyrics to the Broadway musical “Kiss Me Kate!” One of the songs was called “Too Darn Hot.” Here’s Ella Fitzgerald singing it:

And here are the lyrics:

It’s too darn hot!
It’s too darn hot!
I’d like to sup with my baby tonight,
Refill the cup with my baby tonight.
I’d like to sup with my baby tonight,
Refill the cup with my baby tonight,
But I ain’t up to my baby tonight
‘Cause it’s too darn hot

It’s too darn hot!
It’s too darn hot!
I’d like to coo with my baby tonight,
And pitch the woo with my baby tonight.
I’d like to coo with my baby tonight,
And pitch the woo with my baby tonight.
But brother you fight my baby tonight
‘Cause it’s too darn hot

According to the Kinsey Report
Ev’ry average man you know
Much prefers his love-y dove-y to court
When the temperature is low,
But when the thermometer goes ‘way up
And the weather is sizzling hot,
Mister pants for romance is not

‘Cause it’s too, too,
Too darn hot!
It’s too darn hot!
It’s too, too darn hot!
I’d like to coo with my baby tonight
And pitch the woo with my baby tonight
I’d like to coo with my baby tonight,
Pitch the woo with my baby tonight
But brother, you fight my baby tonight
‘Cause it’s too darn hot!

According to the Kinsey Report
Ev’ry average man you know
Much prefers his lovey dovey to court
When the temperature is low
But when the thermometer goes ‘way up
And the weather is sizzling hot,
Mr. Gob for his squab,
A marine for his queen,
A G.I. for his cutie-pie is not

‘Cause it’s too, too,
Too darn hot!
It’s too darn hot!
It’s too darn hot
It’s too darn hot
It’s too darn hot
It’s too darn hot!

PS. After this song was written … someone came up with an idea for air air-conditioning.
