I Get A Kick Out Of You

Album: Anything Goes (1934)

  • My story is much too sad to be told
    But practically everything leaves me totally cold
    The only exception I know is the case
    When I'm out on a quiet spree
    Fighting vainly the old ennui
    And I suddenly turn and see
    Your fabulous face

    I get no kick from champagne
    Mere alcohol doesn't thrill me at all
    So tell me why should it be true
    That I get a kick out of you

    Some get a kick from cocaine
    I'm sure that if I took even one sniff
    That would bore me terrifically too
    Yet I get a kick out of you

    I get a kick every time I see
    You're standing there before me
    I get a kick though it's clear to me
    You obviously do not adore me

    I get no kick in a plane
    Flying too high with some guy in the sky
    Is my idea of nothing to do
    Yet I get a kick out of you

    I get no kick in a plane
    Flying too high with some guy in the sky
    Is my idea of nothing to do
    Yet I get a kick out of you Writer/s: Cole Porter
