Let’s do it!

One of my most played LPs is Rocky Cole‘s ‘Smooth & Rocky’, a jazzy, big-band gem I picked up in the bargain bucket for €1. One of the tracks is a cover of Cole Porter’s ‘Let’s Do It’ which goes like this…

And that’s why birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Cold Cape Cod clams, ‘gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

I’ve heard that lizards and frogs do it
Layin’ on a rock
They say that roosters do it
With a doodle and cock

Some Argentines, without means do it
I hear even Boston beans do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

So pretty much all living things are ‘doing it’ EXCEPT FOR THE TREES!

Well that’s not what I saw the other morning under a blanket of fog… 

Happy Valentines Day!
