TWO LITTLE BABES IN THE WOOD
Originally written for the New York show "Greenwich Village Follies" (1924), but dropped and then used in the show "Paris" (1928)
Cole recorded his version, singing himself in 1934


He lived at swell-egant addresses in Manhattan, Beverly Hills, and the Berkshires, but the ultra-sophisticated Cole Porter (1891-1964) chose to be buried in his hometown of Peru, Indiana, with an unassuming marker. Porter was the son of a local druggist, and at age 8 was enrolled at the nearby Marion Conservatory of Music. There the boy first studied violin and piano and performed at recitals dressed like Little Lord Fauntleroy in a velvet suit with lace cuffs. Though one of his biographers claims young Porter was "no prodigy," he played with a vigor and zest that stole the show. At 10, he composed his first song, "Song of the Birds."
