Here is the song performed as originally written by Cole Porter:

When I think abou Dean Martin I normally think he wasn't that great. But then I hear one of his songs again and I realize he really had a very smooth voice and what I'm remembering is a parody of his singing. He really was a great singer.

But I love Frank too.
