Lorenz Hart(3) 〜’Thou Swell’

May 04.2016

‘Thou Swell’ was written by Richard Rodgers, with words by Lorenz Hart in 1927.

Thou swell, thou witty, thou sweet, thou grand
Wouldst kiss me pretty, would hold my hand
Both thine eyes are cute too, what they do to me
Hear me holler, I choose a sweet lollapaloosa in thee

I’d feel so rich in a hut for two
Two rooms, a kitchen, I’m sure would do
Give me not a lot of just a plot of land
And thou swell, thou witty, thou grand

Thou swell, thou witty, thou sweet, thou grand
Wouldst kiss me pretty, would hold my hand
Hear me holler, I choose a sweet lollapaloosa in thee

Well, I’d feel so rich in a hut for two
Two rooms and a kitchen I’m sure would do
Give me not a lot of just a plot of land
And thou swell, thou witty and thou sweet, thou pretty
Thou swell, thou sweet, thou witty, thou grand

‘Words and Music (1948)’ was produced by MGM.
