standard eterno: a melodia inesquecível e aquela letra superlativa fazem desta canção de cole porter 
uma das minhas “all-time favorites”. apesar da grande versão de ella fitzgerald, esta ainda é a melhor. 
podia estar aqui a escrever inúmeros pormenores e factos curiosos associados à canção mas prefiro 
confessar apenas: os pássaros fazem-no, as abelhas fazem-no, vamos fazê-lo, vamos apaixonar-nos…




When the little bluebird 
Who has never said a word 
Starts to sing Spring
When the little bluebell 
At the bottom of the dell 
Starts to ring Ding dong Ding dong 
When the little blue clerk 
In the middle of his work 
Starts a tune to the moon up above 
It is nature that is all 
Simply telling us to fall in love

And that's why birds do it, bees do it 
Even educated fleas do it 
Let's do it, let's fall in love

In Spain the best upper sets do it
Lithuanians and Letts do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

The Dutch in old Amsterdam do it
Not to mention the Finns
Folks in Siam do it 
Think of Siamese twins

Some Argentines, without means do it
People say in Boston even deans do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Romantic sponges they say do it
Oysters down in Oyster Bay do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Cold Cape Cod clams, 'gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

Electric eels, I might add, do it
Though it shocks 'em I know
Why ask if shad do it
Waiter, bring me shadroe

In shallow shoals, English soles do it
Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love

I've heard that lizards and frogs do it 
Layin' on a rock 
They say that roosters do it 

With a doodle and cock 
When the little bluebird 
Who has never said a word 
starts to sing Spring spring spring 
When the little bluebell 
At the bottom of the dell 
Starts to ring Ding ding ding 
When the little blue clerk 
In the middle of his work 
Starts a tune 

The most refined lady bugs do it 
When a gentleman calls 
Moths in your rugs they do it 
What's the use of moth balls 

The chimpanzees in the zoos do it, 
Some courageous kangaroos do it 
Let's do it, let's fall in love 

I'm sure sometimes on the sly you do it 
Maybe even you and I might do it 
Let's do it, let's fall in love
