Brush Up Your Shakespeare

Album: Kiss Me, Kate (1948)
  • 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. >>
