Louis Armstrong - High society calypso
Tekst en muziek: Cole Porter
(1956)






Just dig that scenery floating by
We’re now approaching Newport Rhode I.
We’ve been, for years, in Variety
But Cholly Knickerbocker, now we’re going to be



In High, High
High So-ci-
High So-ci-ety



Yes, I wanna play for my former pal
Who runs the local jazz festival
His name is Dexter and he’s good news
But something’s gonna tell me that boy’s nursing the blues



In High, High
High So-ci-
High So-ci-ety
High So-ci-ety
High, High
High So-ci-
High So-ci-ety



Yes, she’s got the blues, ’cause his former wife
Begins tomorrow a brand-new life
She started lately a new affair
And now the silly chick is gonna marry a square



In High, High
High So-ci-
Oh, High So-ci-ety
High, High
High So-ci-
High So-ci-ety



But Brother Dexter, just trust your Satch
To stop that wedding and kill that match
I’ll toot my trumpet and start the fun
And play in such a way that she’ll come back to you, son



In High, High
High So-ci-
High So-ci-ety
Oh High, High
High So-ci-
In High So-ci-ety
