Thread Name: Origins: Don't Fence Me In (Cole Porter)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: don't fence me in
I heard Roy Rogers sing this song in a movie clip in a video (possibly America's Music: the Roots of Country). By the way, there's a parody on this song (quoted from HERE):

"If you're a Bing Crosby (or Roy Rogers) fan, or a student of 1940's popular music, you might be familiar with the song "Don't Fence Me In." It's a catchy Cole Porter tune with some pretty corny lyrics. Supposing (tongue in cheek) you wanted to update these lyrics for the new millenium, the subject of intranet webs might be just the place to start:

"Oh, give me links, lots of links under banner ads above,
Don't fence me in.
Let me surf through the wide open pages that I love,
Don't fence me in.
Let me search by myself in directory trees,
And listen to the streaming of my MP3's,
Log my use forever but I ask you please,
Don't fence me in."
