Louisiana Hayride Lyrics

Louisiana Hayride by Leo Reisman  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



Louisiana Hayride It's De-lovely
Johnny Mathis
Written by Cole Porter

This version did not chart but
In 1936 Leo Reisman put it at # 7 and
In 1937, 3 versions charted: Eddy Duchin (#1), Shep Fields (#9), and Will Osborne (#14)
Sung in the 1936 musical "Red, Hot, and Blue" by Ethel Merman and Bob Hope
The 1936 movie "Anything Goes" did NOT include this song but it was sung in the 1956 re-make
by Mitzi Gaynor and Donald O'Connor. Bing Crosby starred in both films but did not sing
this one!!


INTRO:
I feel a sudden urge to sing the kind of ditty that invokes the Spring
So, control your desire to curse while I crucify the verse
This verse I've started seems to me the "Tin Pan-tithesis" of melody
So to spare you all the pain, I'll skip the darn thing and sing the refrain


The night is young and the skies are clear
And if you want to go walkin', dear
It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely

I understand the reason why
You're sentimental, well so am I
It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely

You can tell at a glance what a swell night this is for romance
You can hear Mother Nature murmuring low "Let yourself go"

So please be sweet, my chickadee
And when I kiss ya, say to me
"It's delightful, it's delicious, it's delectable, it's delirious,
It's dilemma, it's de limit, it's deluxe, it's de-lovely"


It's delightful, it's de-lovely


It's delightful, it's delicious, it's de-lovely

You can tell at a glance what a swell night this is for romance
You can hear dear Mother Nature murmuring low "Let yourself go"

So please be sweet, my chickadee
And when I kiss ya, just say to me
"It's delightful, it's delicious, it's delectable, it's delirious,
It's dilemma, it's de limit, it's deluxe, it's de-lovely"
