Kiss Me, Kate - I Am Ashamed That People Are So Simple Lyrics

2019 Broadway revival
Kiss Me Kate the Musical - I Am Ashamed That People Are So Simple Lyrics


"I Am Ashamed That People Are So Simple" was written by Cole Porter, performed by Kelli O'Hara (Lilli Vanessi/Katharine).

KATAHARINE:
I am ashamed the people a so simple
To offer war where they should kneel for peace,
Or seek for rule, supremacy, and sway
When they are bound to serve, love and obey.
Why are our bodies soft and weak and smooth,
Unapt to toil and trouble in the world,
But that our soft conditions and our hearts
Should well agree with our external parts?
So, wife, hold your temper and meekly put
Your hand 'neath the sole of your husband's foot,
In token of which duty, if he please,
My hand is ready,
Ready,
May it do him ease.
