Love For Sale

"Продажная любовь".
Песня, которую сочинил Кол Портер. На слова Чарлза Шварца.
Charles Schwartz, writer of Cole Porter: A Biography, notes that Porter’s melancholy ballad “Love for Sale” was first performed by Kathryn Crawford, as the prostitute May in the Broadway musical The New Yorkers. The musical opened on December 8, 1930. It was the first show to be staged in B.S. Moss' recently converted Broadway Theatre, once the colossal Colony Theater constructed by Moss in 1924 to present vaudeville acts and films.

When the only sound in the empty street
Is the heavy tread of the heavy feet
That belong to a lonesome cop
I open shop

When the moon so long has been gazing down
On the wayward ways of this wayward town
That her smile becomes a smirk
I go to work

Love for sale
Appetizing young love for sale
Love that's fresh and still unspoiled
Love that's only slightly soiled
Love for sale

Who will buy?
Who would like to sample my supply?
Who's prepared to pay the price
For a trip to paradise?
Love for sale

Let the poets pipe of love
In their childish way
I know every type of love
Better far than they

If you want the thrill of love
I've been through the mill of love
Old love, new love
Every love but true love

Love for sale
Appetizing young love for sale
If you want to buy my wares
Follow me and climb the stairs
Love for sale.
