Let's Do This, Not That
The Day-and-Night and Night-and-Day Music to Play By
The Introductory Sonnet to the Duet

Oh, every turtle not erect is blue
Yet shriveled up inside its BVD's
E'er longing for a soul mate tried and true
And tested for each sexual disease--
As every dove in being yet not wet
Into a pillow cries itself to sleep
Ne'er wishing for a shallow bassinet
But for a penetrating soul mate deep--
Though few romantics find the one true love
Since out of love near all true lovers fall
While even every loving turtledove
Knows ever it is best to simply ball--
So when in Rome ask every Roman yet
To do it with you to this swell duet--
To the Tune of "Let's Do It--Let's Fall in Love" by Cole Porter

The Final Line of the Final Verse
A3 G3 F3 B3b A3 C4 F4
For teeny quails do it-- Snails do it--
Even padded Chippendales do it--
Let's do it! To hell with Love!
Great huge Clydesdales do it-- Whales do it--
Moby Dicks and minnow males do it--
Look to it! To hell with Love!
Harvard tux tails do it-- Yales do it--
Princes ruling still in Wales do it--
Just do it! To hell with Love!
Wholesale wine sales do it-- Ales do it--
Tipsy cocktails in the jails do it--
Oh! Oooh it! To Hell with Love!
Unfallen scales do it-- Tales do it--
Pregnant virgin nuns in veils do it--
God! Screw it! To HELL! with Love!
All Holy Grails do it-- Nails do it--
Even ye of faith in vales do it--
RE-do it! Let's SMELL!!! of "Love"!
