SLS – Delightful

I have picked a song for today’s Song Lyric Sunday that was covered a while back by a British pop star. For a long time I was not sure what to make of Robbie Williams. I am still a little uncertain about him. But I know he is hugely popular to many in the UK.

I really like Robbie Williams voice when he sings classic crooners. He is absolutely fabulous when he is pretending to be Frank Sinatra. I think he enjoys it too. I really do. So it is a pleasure to feature him singing the gorgeous song “It’s De-lovely”, another brilliant tune from the incredible Cole Porter.

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

Mi, mi, mi, mi; re, re, re, re; Do, Sol, Mi, Do, La, Si…
Take it away…

The night is young, the skies are clear
And if you want to go walkin’, dear
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s D’lovely

I understand the reason why
You’re sentimental, ’cause so am I
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s D’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 you, 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 D’lovely”

Time marches on and soon it’s plain
You’ve won my heart and I lost my brain
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s D’lovely

Life seems so sweet that we decide
It’s in the bag to get unified
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s D’lovely

See the crowd in that church
See the proud parson plopped on his perch
Get the sweet beat of that organ sealing our doom
Here goes the groom – boom!

How they cheer and how they smile
As we go galopping down the aisle
It’s divine, dear, it’s d’vene, dear, it’s d’wunderbar, it’s d’victory
It’s de-velop, it’s d’vinner, it’s d’voix, it’s D’lovely

The night is tired and so we take
The few hours off to eat wedding cake
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s D’lovely

It feels so fine to be a bride
And how´s the groom while he’s slightly fried
It’s divineful, it’s delicious, it’s D’lovely

To the pop of champagne off we hop in our plush little plane
‘Til a bright light through the darkness cosily calls Niagara Falls

Well, my love, our day’s complete
What a beautiful bridal suite
It’s D’reamy, it’s d’rousy, it’s d’reverie, it’s d’rhapsodie
It’s d’regal, it’s d’royal, it’s d’ritz, it’s D’lovely

We settle down as man and wife
To solve the riddle called married life
It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s D’lovely
