Cole Porter: Love for Sale

It’s Cole Porter’s birthday (he’d be 114 today), an appropriate time to recall one of his cheerier lyrics.

                      Love for Sale

Who will buy?
Who would like to sample my supply?
Who's prepared to pay the price,
For a trip to paradise?
Love for sale

Let the poets pipe of love
in their childish way,
I know every type of love
Better far than they.

If you want the thrill of love,
I've been through the mill of love;
Old love, new love
Every love but true love
Love for sale.

Love for sale,
Appetizing young love for sale.
Love that's fresh and still unspoiled,
Love that's only slightly soiled,
Love for sale.
