Kiss Me Kate – Brush Up Your Shakespeare lyrics
The girls today in society meow

Go for classical poetry
So to win their hearts you must quote with ease
Aeschylus and Euripides

But the poet of them all
Who will start 'em simply ravin'
Is the poet people call
The Bard of Stratford-on-Avon

Brush up your Shakespeare
Start quoting him now
Brush up your Shakespeare
And the women you will wow

Just declaim a few lines from 'Othella'
And they think you're a heckuva fella
If your blond won't respond when you flatter 'er
Tell her what Tony told Cleopaterer

And if still, to be shocked, she pretends well
Just remind her that 'All's Well That Ends Well'
Brush up your Shakespeare
And they'll all kowtow

Brush up your Shakespeare
Start quoting him now
Brush up your Shakespeare
And the women you will wow

If your girl is a Washington Heights dream
Treat the kid to 'a Midsummer Night Dream'
If she fights when her clothes you are mussing
What are clothes? 'Much Ado About Nussing'

If she says your behavior is heinous
Kick her right in the 'Coriolanus'
Brush up your Shakespeare
And they'll all kowtow

And they'll all kowtow
Think style
And they'll all kowtow
I [Incomprehensible]
And they'll all kowtow[Incomprehensible]

Brush up your Shakespeare
Start quoting him now
Brush up your Shakespeare
And the women you will wow

Brush up your Shakespeare
And they'll all kowtow
