You know, quite for no reason
I’m here for the season
And high as a kite—
Living in error
With Maud at Cap Ferrat
(Which couldn’t be right)…
Everyone’s here, and frightfully gay;
Nobody cares what people say, 
Though the Riviera
Seems really much queerer
Than Rome at its height!
On Wednesday night
I went to a marvellous party
With Noonoo, and Nada, and Nell—
It was in the fresh air, 
And we went as we were, 
And we stayed as we were, 
(Which was hell)
Poor Grace started singing at midnight, 
And she didn’t stop singing ‘til four—
We knew the excitement was bound to begin
When Laura got blind on Dubonnet and gin
And scratched her veneer with a Cartier pin!
I couldn’t have liked it more!

I’ve been to a marvellous party
We played a wonderful game:
Maureen disappeared
And came back in a beard, 
And we all had to guess at her name…
Cecil arrived wearing armour, 
Some shells and a black feather boa—
Poor Millicent wore a surrealist comb
Made of bits of mosaic from
St. Peter’s in Rome, 
But the weight was so great
that she had to go home!
And I couldn’t have liked it more!

I’ve been to a marvellous party
I must say the fun was intense;
We all had to do
What the people we knew
Might be doing a hundred years hence…
We talked about growing old gracefully, 
And Elsie—who’s seventy-four—
Said, “A) it’s a
question of being sincere, 
And B) If you’re supple you’ve got
nothing to fear”—
Then she swung upside-down from a chandelier!
And I couldn’t have liked it more!

It was the most fabulous excitement
I’ve never seen such a carry-on!
Obviously, it couldn’t happen
Anywhere else but on the Riviera…
It was most peculiar—
You know, people’s behaviour
Away from Belgravia
Would make you aghast!
So much variety, 
Watching society
Scampering past…
You know, if you have any mind at all, 
Gibbon’s divine
"Decline And
Fall”—
Well, it sounds pretty flimsy
No more than a whimsy…
By way of contrast, 
On Wednesday last

I went to a marvellous party
We didn’t sit down ‘til ten
You know, young Bobby Carr
Did a stunt at the bar
With a lot of extraordinary men!
And then Freda arrived with a turtle, 
(Which shattered us all to the core)
And then the duchess passed out
at a quarter to three
And suddenly Cyril cried
"Fiddle-de-dee!", 
Then he ripped off his trousers
And jumped in the sea!
And I couldn’t have liked it more!

I’ve been to a marvellous party
Elyse made an entrance with May
you’d never have guessed
From her fisherman’s vest
That her bust had been whittled away…
Poor Lulu got fried on Chianti
And talked about esprit de corps;
Louise made a couple of passes at Gus, 
And Freddie—who hates any kind of a fuss—
Did half the Big Apple and
twisted his truss—ha ha!
I couldn’t have liked it more!

It’s been a loooong time since I had attempted to do a serious portrait, so here’s a picture of silent era superstar Gloria Swanson, as originally painted by Rolf Armstrong for the November 1923 cover of Screenland. (Click here to see the original and to read the whole issue!)
