Wheel of Lyricism

A gift to animal_co...

Some get their kicks in a plane...
Flying too high
With some guy
In the sky
Is my i-dea of
Nothing to do...


The gimme: yes, this was recorded by Old Blue Eyes. Who wrote it?

The song, of course, is "A Kick Out of You".

I *think* it's from Anything Goes, but I don't quote me on that.

It was in that one - and one of the other ones he did. :)

I like the verse about cocaine. It's not in all versions though.

Someone beat me to it.

I will always - always - hear that song as sung by Cleavon Little in Blazing Saddles.
