PILOT ME — Cole Porter — Published August 1928

There is a fine version of this song out there as recorded by the late, great Bobby Short!!

I’ve got an aeroplane,

Entirely new,

A cozy, narrow plane,

Just built for two.

I’ll let you drive it, dear,

And when you do,

Up where it’s private, dear,

We’ll bill and coo.


Pilot me,

Pilot me,

Be the pilot I need.

Please give my ship

A maiden trip,

And we’ll get the prize for speed.

So cast away your fears,

Strip my gears,

Let me carry you through.

And when afraid you are

Of going too far,

Then I’ll

Just pil-

Ot you.
