Currently being played on Sirius XM's Siriusly Sinatra, this song was originally recorded in 1928. It was a shocking and risque title. Everybody thought they knew what 'it' was but nobody dared talk about it and they couldn't prove which 'it' they were talking about!

The first verse covers human ethnic groups, the second verse birds, the third verse marine life.

A punk rock version performed by Joan Jett and Paul Westerberg was used as the theme song in the 1995 movie Tank Girl.

From intimate supper clubs to Radio City Music Hall and every type of venue across the US and Europe, Lisa Addeo's music touches audiences of all sizes. “I adore playing ‘live’. As my music fills the room, the audience fills my heart.”

Inspired by the romance of the words and the charming melodies of these love songs from The Great American Songbook, Lisa swoons with Frank Sinatra's vintage microphone in the same studio where Ol' Blue Eyes himself recorded these timeless classics... Studio A at Capitol Records tower - the hottest ticket in town!

Accompanying herself on Capitol Studios' grand piano and backed on upright by Alex Frank (Dave Damiani, Jeff Goldblum) and Ryan Shaw on Drums (Michael Bublé) Lisa Addeo delivers 12 love songs and joins forces with Capitol Records' legendary engineer Steve Genewick to deliver a deliciously smooth collection of timeless standards.

"It was a riveting experience to record the same songs Frank Sinatra recorded in the exact same studio while singing into his vintage microphone", states Addeo. "With legendary engineer Steve Genewick behind the board at Capitol Studios in Hollywood and my talented sidemen, the project took on a delicious and dreamy sound...A Kind Of Daydream."


Lisa Addeo is a Pianist/Vocalist/Composer currently heard in homes across America and around the world. She is comfortable playing and singing many different styles, from Contemporary/Smooth Jazz to Pop and the Great American Songbook.

Lisa says, "I have been a huge fan of amazing artists like Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin, and these timeless love songs for as long as I can remember. It's a dream come true to be played nationally alongside these giants. They are truly musical royalty. I adore these sweet melodies and heart stopping lyrics".

Lisa has been described as a ‘world-class musician’ and her music as ‘tenderly intimate, a joy to listen to.’ One listener wrote, 'This is music that comes from the heart...with soul.'

All of Lisa's music can be found here and on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Pandora, iHeart radio, her website, YouTube and all major digital retailers.

Lyrics

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 beans 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 shad roe!

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