Fresh as a Daisy lyrics

Fresh as a Daisy lyrics – music and lyrics by Cole Porter, sung by Virginia O’Brien, with Red Skelton, Rags Ragland, and Ben Blue in Panama Hattie

[Virginia O’Brien]
I’m fresh as a daisy, hard as a rock,
Fit as a fiddle, proud as a cock,
Bright as a button, sly as a fox,
Shy as a violet and strong as an ox,
Light as a feather, blind as a bat,
Mad as a hatter and nervous as a cat,
Sharp as a razor, smooth as a glove,
That means, mister, I’m in love!

I was a sunken souffle, a shirt still looking for starch,
I was a ballroom after the ball, I was a fallen arch,
I was a frozen asset, a burlesque without a tease,
Then suddenly, from over the sea, came …

Well, just look at me please,
I’m fresh as a daisy, tough as a steak,
Mean as a miser, low as a snake,
Scared as a rabbit, small as a mite,
Gay as a meadowlark, high as a kite,
And wild

[Red Skelton, Rags Ragland, Ben Blue]
as a tiger,
[Virginia O’Brien]
drunk
[Red Skelton, Rags Ragland, Ben Blue]
as a fool,
[Virginia O’Brien]
And sour
[Red Skelton, Rags Ragland, Ben Blue]
as a lemon
[Virigina O’Brien}
and stubborn
[Red Skelton, Rags Ragland, Ben Blue]
as a mule,
[Virginia O’Brien]
And sweet
[Red Skelton, Rags Ragland, Ben Blue]
as a cookie
[Virginia O’Brien]
and pure
[Red Skelton, Rags Ragland, Ben Blue]
as a dove

[Virginia O’Brien, stacatto]
I’m fresh as a daisy, hard as a rock,
Fit as a fiddle, proud as a cock,
Bright as a button, sly as a fox,
Shy as a violet and strong as an ox,
Light as a feather, blind as a bat,
Mad as a hatter and nervous as a cat,
Sharp as a razor, smooth as a glove,
That means, mister, I’m in love!
Love, love, love!
