But in the morning, no!

Pues ya terminando con los fastos del día (que la verdad es que han quedado plenamente excesivos) yo me he ido a buscar a ese que es fuente de casi todo el saber. No, no me he ido a buscar a Homer Simpson, aunque ahora que lo pienso... No, me he ido en busca de uno de los más grandes compositores de musicales de todos los tiempos: Cole Porter.

Y parece que Cole Porter conocía el ánimo alondril de Bichejo cuando escribió la siguiente canción para el musical DuBarry was a Lady:


SHE: Love affairs among the gentility
Hit the rocks with great agility
Either because of income or incompatibility
HE: We've adjusted our finances
You run mine and I run France's
So there's only one question that's hot
Will we have fun or not?

SHE: Are you fond of swimming, Dear?
Kindly tell me, if so
HE: Yes, I'm fond of swimming, Dear
But in the morning, no
SHE: Can you do the crawl, my Dear?
Kindly tell me, if so
HE: Yes, I can do the crawl, my Dear
But in the morning, no
When the sun through the blind
Starts to burn my poor behind
That's the time when I'm in low
SHE: Do you use the breast stroke, Dear?
Kindly tell me, if so
HE: Yes, I use the breast stroke, Dear
But in the morning, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no!

SHE: Are you fond of poker, Dear?
Kindly tell me, if so
HE: Yes, I'm fond of poker, Dear
But in the morning, no
SHE: Do you ante up, my Dear?
Kindly tell me, if so
HE: Yes, I ante up, my Dear
But in the morning, no
When my old Gunga Din
Brings the Bromo Seltzer in
That's the time when I'm in low
SHE: Can you fill an inside straight?
Kindly tell me, if so
HE: I've filled plenty inside straights
But in the morning, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no!

HE: Are you in the market, Dear?
Kindly tell me, if so
SHE: Yes, I'm in the market, Dear
But in the morning, no
HE: Are you fond of bulls and bears?
Kindly tell me, if so
SHE: Yes, I'm found of bears and bulls
But in the morning, no
When I'm waked by my fat
Old canary, singing flat
That's the time when I'm in low
HE: Would you ever sell your seat?
Kindly tell me, if so
SHE: Yes, I'd gladly sell my seat
But in the morning, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no!

SHE: Are you fond of business, Dear?
Kindly tell me, if so
HE: Yes, I'm fond of business, Dear
But in the morning, no
SHE: Are you good at figures, Dear?
Kindly tell me, if so
HE: Yes,I'm good at figures, Dear
But in the morning, no
When the sun on the rise
Shows the bags 'neath my eyes
That's the time when I'm in low
SHE: Do you double entry, Dear?
Kindly tell me, if so
HE: Yes, I do double entry, Dear
But in the morning,no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no!
¡Muchas felicidades, Bichejo!

  2. Desde tu contención y mesura tienes que reconocer que se nos ha ido de las manos.
