Brush Up Your Shakespeare

by

Cast of Kiss Me, Kate



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This Cole Porter composition, from the musical Kiss Me, Kate, is a humorous ditty explaining how to pull the birds, as evinced by the forced rhymes - although no man of letters would put it quite like that.
In the original 1948 production it was introduced by Harry Clark and Jack Diamond as the dueting gangsters. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England)
