Coward's most alluring rendition was delivered during his season at the Desert Inn, Las Vegas. On June 8, 1955, he wrote to his friend Lorne Loraine:
"The high spot, as usual, was 'Let's Do It' at the end, for which I have written an extra chorus full of local allusions, all of which tore the place up."
As with many of Coward's songs, he came close to crossing the line, here with "Even Liberace we assume does it." Two years later, Liberace would sue the British Daily Mirror
newspaper over insinuations of homosexuality. Coward's Desert Inn version of "Let's Do It" also includes the alluring couplet:Teenagers squeezed into jeans do it
Probably we'll live to see machines do it...
