About From This Moment On
Cole Porter originally wrote this song for his musical Out Of This World, but it was dropped from the Anne Miller and was the basis for a fantastic dance choreographed (and danced) by a young Bob Fosse. The song was used in the 1999 Broadway stage revival of Kiss Me Kate. Doris Day recorded this song as a single in 1950; the Frank Sinatra 1957 recording for his A Swingin’ Affair! was instrumental in the popularity of this song. It has also been recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne and Susannah McCorkle.

Lyrics

From this moment on,
You for me dear,
Only two for tea dear,
From this moment on,

From this happy day,
No more blue songs,
Only hoop-de-doo songs,
From this moment on

You’ve got the love I need so much
Got the skin I love to touch
Got the arms to hold me tight
Got the sweet lips to kiss me goodnight

From this moment on
You and I babe
We’ll be ridin’ high babe
Every care is gone
From this moment on.

You’ve got the love I need so much
Got the skin I love to touch
Got the arms to hold me tight
Got the sweet lips to kiss me goodnight

From this moment on
You and I babe
We’ll be ridin’ high babe
Every care is gone
From this moment,
From this moment,
This very moment,
This moment on.
