Fi, Fi, Fifi

Album: The Unpublished Cole Porter (1909)
  • According to Robert Kimball in The Complete Lyrics Of Cole Porter, Porter began songwriting in earnest between 1905 and 1909; "Fi, Fi, Fifi" was one of the songs he produced at this time, and which didn't survive.
    Little is known about this song except that it appears not to have impressed Porter's headmaster at the Worcester Academy. >>
